Moving the Panels:

In order to move the panel to a different position, edit the gap_x and gap_y values in the conkyrc file. The gap_x value is the horizontal distance (in pixels) from the top-left edge of the screen. The gap_y value is the vertical distance (in pixels) from the top-left edge of the screen. Edit these values to move the panel to a different position on your desktop.
