You may want to increase your text buffer size from 2048 to 4096 - that *should* get rid of the "i"

Well in your recipe you are missing some specials and not enough text buffers :DCode:
## This buffer is used for text, single lines, output from $exec, and other variables.
## Increasing the text buffer size (too high) will drastically reduce Conky's performance.
## Decreasing the size (too low) will truncate content and cause strange display output.
## Standard text buffer size is 256 bytes (cannot be less). Adjust YOUR buffer wisely!
please increase that number to say 3096 and see if things show up - you need to play with this value till figures and images show up and then add some more for good measure.
See the code dump Vin had made - your template is also showing it's age as the new template is different.
have a look at the stuff there - the buffers are 4352 [ Vin has a fetish for precision :D which is why his hard work looks sooo good]
also you have to add max_specials
Frankly I just test the code with conkywx - I stay away from lua - maybe someday i will use it but I prefer the kiss principle - Now do not go asking me what kiss means in Hungarian - see the link and you SHALL keel over ha ha haCode:
## Maximum number of special things, e.g. fonts, offsets, aligns, etc. (default is 512)
## Tips n' Tricks from: sparker256 (Thanks, Bill!)
Edit: I also noticed if I increased the update_interval 2.0 to 3.0 the cpu cycles used by conky really falls :)
I finally sorted out the way I want it. Thank you VinDSL & Paramvir and everyone for all your help.
Final version of my VinDSL conkywx:
Moved a pixel here and there, added 'Rain Fall' and adjusted the height of the calendar so it does not spill over for a 6 week month such as December 2012:
Thanks again VinDSL and paramvir !
Happy Holidays / Frank
Full screen view here (watch the birdie...):
I have no credit for this fantastic Conky works here. You should thanks to VinDSL, Paramvir & 42Dorian for their works. I just copied and mod a bit to make it works with my system.
Still can't get to display right...
have two little details, one is the ubunto logo and header, and the second is the calendar.
they look like soemthing is missing.
Any hint in the right direction is appreciated.
