infini fonts used by default is a french font From Centre National des arts plastiques. From what I read, greek is not supported :frown:

Bingo, thanks. I love the font, but will look replacing it (sorry, asqwerth!) if we keep this as the default conky.

No worries - I forgot all about characters for other languages!

As long as the version with infini font remains in the collection for those of us whose languages can be displayed by said font, it's not really a problem.

And an other thing : in the conky conf file, override_utf8_locale must be put to yes for a full display (italian is supported but does not display correctly without this option)

Great, I wondered what that was for.

I am going to create a "default" version of the conky so we don't lose that gorgeous font completely from the set.

@anti: if you replace

Infini

with

Roboto-Regular

Does it render the Greek? This is just a proof-of-concept question. It's hard to tell without going through a lot of fonts, for which I don't have time right now.

Another candidate might be wqy-microhei, which supposedly also handles Chinese and Japanese.

Replacing Infini with Roboto-Regular AND override_utf8_locale yes renders Greek correctly.

Good, that's a start--thanks. Not a very handsome font...but now I can move forward.

Regarding GeekyTowerLogo, I overlooked the fact that the cpu readings and bar graph should refer to cpu0 (ie, the total usage for all CPU cores), rather than to cpu1, which would only display usage for the 1st core.

So the text in line 115 should be:

Code: Select all

${color3}CPU: ${color}${cpu cpu0}% ${alignr}${color}${cpubar cpu0 8,60}
ADDED: and on another note, after installation of beta2, the MX logo no longer shows up in this conky (it did when I tested the conky in live mode) when you use:

Code: Select all

./MXLogoStart.png
as the file path.

Note that I used the $HOME/.conky/MX-Asq/etc etc way of describing the path for the harddrive.sh script and it continues to work.

Would suggest the same for the logo pic, so line 108 should be:

Code: Select all

 ${image $HOME/.conky/MX-Asq/MX-GeekyTowerLogo/MXLogoStart.png -p 97,90 -s 50x50}
and yep, that works. I really don't like the "./" shortcut.
