Display of time on home screen
« on: November 22, 2015, 11:15:11 pm »
Hi.  Using 64-bit Sparky, new install.

Darned if I can remember if I've asked this question before, but this board doesn't let you search for your own posts, as far as I can see.  I can only look for unread answers to my posts.

On the home screen, the time display is in 24-hour format.  I would love to be able to display 12-hour format, with AM/PM.  I think I have to adjust Conky settings, but I simply can't recall which setting I should change.

Can someone help?  Thanks!

Hi
Menu-> Accessories-> Conky manager, then Edit.
Find the line:
Code: [Select]
${goto 22}${font LCDMono:bold:size=18}${color3}${time %T}${color}Change:
Code: [Select]
%Tto:
Code: [Select]
%I %M %S
Nothing is easy as it looks.
