Some of the text part of conky are overlapping with itself. As you can see in the 3rd bubble form the top "Disks" is hidden under Root, Home, and Date.

I want it to look like this:

I have installed the conky manager using this method. But I can't seem to fix it.

  • In this example, the screen shot is the actual visual feedback of my .conkyrc config file, which is located in ~/.

What you can see, when you carefully compare the screen shot, with the code listed below from both examples is, that i only changed the ${voffset} parameters, starting from:

 # Showing disk partitions: root, home and Data

In your case it is the same point of reference, to get started from! Every entry in the code, below of my #HDD[s]-setting needs to be readjusted, always using the ${voffset xx} parameter, just like in the example.

  • I know, it looks quite difficult, but give it some time, and you'll make it work!
