Thanks, that's what I see on my production machine as well, though not my testing machine.

Checked my laptop. It does line up on that machine.

Must be off just a couple of pixels, below the resolution level of the laptops

Can you please try this deb (didn't increase the version number yet, it will install over) and see if this pixel issue is solved
https://github.com/MX-Linux/mx-conky/ra ... _amd64.deb

My guess is that the width of the field was too small and for people who use different fonts (or maybe different DPI) the size of "Default" and "Color0" were different. That worries me a bit translations, the columns can potentially be out of whack if the words have totally different length. I gave them a length of 55 but what does that mean? I really cannot guess what's the lengths of the words in all the languages and the font size used by users...

On large screen default is now very slightly to the right, but I have to look very closely to see it. It is still OK on the laptop.

I can increase the width to 60 from 55... but then everything will be shifted right by that much.

That now looks fine on my production and testing machines. Rich's hdpi screen should not be a concern.

BTW: before you release that as a new version, could you please lengthen the line above the CM launch button so it covers something like 75% of the space (if that's how you do it)?

Thanks.

On the two screens I have tested, 1920 x1280 and 1366 x 768, the last change is acceptable in my opinion.

Will do, I think I will wait for the translations or bigger changes to push the update.
