One of the things to watch in the conky fine tuning is the "max size" designation inside the conky files. I tweaked the current default by expanding that value to 700 (originally 550 I think) as "Wednesday" was cut off at the "d".

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.

In the long run, we have a solution in the pipeline that will take care of this.
I can. You mean the ./conky folder. There are more than 4 in there.

No, I mean the ./conky/Default folder. Those are the first-order ones we need to get polished for RC

There is no GoldGrey in the /usr/... folder, so I wonder if there's something left over in ~/.conky/ by mistake? It should be empty at install until MX Conky is launched, right?

Thanks. I saw that was causing trouble when I tried to change the weekday format.

There's so many g-d factors to keep track of...

Different conky...

Before the RC, we will want to settle on one of the 4 in the Default folder and do last adjustments.

They aren't part of the current 20171128 mx-conky-data package... :confused: check with

Code: Select all

dpkg-query -L mx-conky-data
