I'm really stuck with a layout problem in Conky 1.8.1. If you look at the upper left of the desktop you will see a grey box around time/date window called conky_time. The lower left window is called conky_network, and of course, the window on the right is .conkyrc. The whole mess is called up by a script at start time. I changed the "draw_borders" argument to yes in order to show the box and the problem. How do I shrink the box so that it is just around the date and time? And once properly shrunk, how do I get it to expand to cover a possible weather addition to go under the date and time? Thank you in advance.
