A few conkies are set to a time format that can not be changed (the default Gotham, for example). In such cases, click the pencil icon to open up the script itself, and click Search > Replace to change %l (lower-case L) to %H
Thanks for the hint, Jerry.
I guess it's easy for you, since you are much more of an expert than the average user.
Wouldn't call that particularly easy when compared to other desktop environments of other operating systems, however.
For anyone still struggling, the step-by-step way with MX-17.1's default time and date widget is
Conky Manager -> [Click on 'Hermoso_sys_mx171', which is the name of the default time and date widget] -> Edit Widget -> Time -> Time Format.
Greetings, and have a nice weekend to all of you, Joe
