I should add that I have no idea whether a date like 11/30/17 will localize at all, but was trying got a Conky with minimal translation needs.

They look fine to me. One anomaly. With the default Gotham if I changed the day to short using MX Conky the bottom half of the conky was cut off. I corrected it by reducing the window height. Why that works is an unknown to me. Same result on both my desktop and laptop.

Thanks. That stuff is hard to figure out exactly. What width did you reduce it to?

it was changing the height, not width. Corrected my post. Too early in the AM.

That's what I have already in the new default Gotham: are you sure you opened the one in the Default folder?

I just installed a fresh b3. It is in the default dirctory. That line with no changes is
minimum_size 0 0 and cutoff occurs

Changing it to
minimum_size 500 250 corrects.

Aha! But you're supposed to be testing the conkies in that file I linked to above, where that correction has already been made. I'm all set now, thanks.
