Gotham only has the default color defined hence the gold cannot be changed. Need to define a color 1 and change the code if want this capability.

I built with whatever came down in the update. So I don't know.

Or

Its also possible that I didn't get them removed from the home folder when doing the updating. compare ~/.conky vs. /usr/share/mx-conky-data and see if things match.
They aren't part of the current mx-conky-data package... :confused:
I found it. when I updated the the iso at the last minute, I did a copy into the .conky folder in etc/skel and it of course didn't remove any old ones... this is fixed for RC.

Thanks. I had that fixed once, but something got lost along the way.

Out of the conky configs in the default subfolder, I like the gotham one the best. A big part for me is the use of ratio output vs. percentages. the other 3 use percentages. the ratios provide the same info, but clearer in my mind.

Thanks. We can shift parts around pretty easily, i.e., steal the ratio code from Gotham and paste it into the others. So if one *design* turns out to be the preferred, then we can move the code to it. I am fixing the Default folder as we go aloing, and will update it in a couple of days.

I like Gotham as well, but prefer percent used. With ratios I am never sure if it is used/total or free/total.

It isn't always clear, and I have fooled around with "MEM free" as well.

Am generally trying to minimize the necessity to translate so layout doesn't get messed up.

Ram strikes me differently for some reason mem used seems more clear. Clarification for disk usage would be to add used or free. eg. Root Used. But that gets wordy and takes up room. So not sure about that.

OK, heading toward RC and Final now and I want to concentrate on the conkies in the Default folder b/c it has been very hard for me to deal with all of them and these are the ones we need ready to go. And my time is running out.

Please download the new MX-Default folder linked below, then delete everything currently in ~/.conky/MX-Default and extract the zip file into the empty folder. Ignore colors for now, but otherwise examine structure, information, etc. Test localization in a Live context if possible, especially if you know the target language.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6cger84u46x41 ... 0.zip?dl=0

This process needs to finish by the end of the weekend, after which I will make any last changes, upload to the GitHum repo and have it packaged. The Dev Team will need to select one of these for Final.

TIA
