Please elaborate. What needs to be modified? Did you patch conky to work in Gnome3? Show your solution to the others!... How colud this be marked as the correct answer if there is no answer at all?

I'm not sure what exactly needs to be modified in the .conkyrc File but with the Sample I posted above conky runs under gnome3!

There are a lot of conkyrc files that work well in Fedora 17 and Gnome 3. For example this one: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Revolutionary+Clock+%28+Conky+%29?content=151215. So you were asking about a particular conkyrc config file and not Conky as a package...

Sorry if I worded my question vague, and thanks for the link! Looks nice =)

Conky works the same on Fedora as any other Linux distribution. Use Google to find conkyrc scripts. Here is a link that I found via Google.
