Conky fonts [SOLVED]

Postby dox_drum » Sun Feb 26, 2012 7:54 am

Dear community,

I've been trying conky for a few weeks, and I like it very much. However, I try to change fonts and nothing happens.

  • How do I know the fonts installed for conky?
  • How could I install more fonts?
  • Is it possible to control the size? I tried but nothing!

Thank you for helping me.

"How do I know the fonts installed for conky?" -They should be the same fonts you have installed on your system. Open Appearance > fonts to see installed fonts.
"How could I install more fonts?" - Look on the internet for other fonts. this site has some you can check out.
"Is it possible to control the size? I tried but nothing!" - You need to look and find your conky.rc script and look for something like this

Code: Select all

${font caviar dreams:size=8}IP: ${addr wlan0}${font}
And where it says "Size" just make the number as big as you want it. Make sure to save your changes as well. Then, in a terminal, type

Code: Select all

killall conky
and then

Code: Select all

conky
to run it again and see if it fixed your changes. If this doesn't work, please post your .conkyrc file here so we can look at it.

Hi guys! I could solve my problem.

It seems that I misses a couple of lines

Code: Select all

use_xft yes
xftfont 123:size=8


I've included the .conkyrc file in case some one is curious.

Thanks

.conkyrc

I'm sorry, I gave you the .conkyrc file but forgot the .conky folder (attached)

Additionally attached a picture on my desktop.
