I enabled the Lite Widget on the 5.4 release but it is displayed almost entirely off-screen.  Here is a picture of what is happening.



What should I do to get the widget readjusted on-screen?

Also, how would I move the widget to the second monitor?

Can you please screenshot both monitors with the Lite Widget enabled.

Ok, here is what it looks like.  Primary monitor on the right where the widget is off-screen.  Secondary monitor to the left where I would like the widget to be displayed.



If  I edit the line shown below in /etc/conky-lite/widget



to read "bottom_left"  instead of " bottom_right" I get this on the screen with the widget enabled.  Still not on the secondary monitor.



So I don' t know where to go after that.

So is this fixable to get on-screen on the right and on the second monitor or should I forget about it?

@timbuck2
I'm curious ... does the task bar show on the screen?
Perhaps the resolutions for the monitors are the same - but need to be different... Makes sense with default its off screen to the right - is the taskbar/time missing as well...
If you can, use a lower resolution on the primary/screen on right...

I've had to do this in Linux and Windows depending on laptop and external monitors...

maybe worth a try

Undo whatever settings you have. Edit /etc/conky-lite/widget as Admin and change the:

Code: [Select]
# Gap between borders of screen and text
# Same thing as passing -x at command line
gap_x -375
gap_y 65

numbers until you get what fits. If Lite Widget ever gets updated, it will over write your custom values so make sure after your changes, you make a backup of the widget file. As you can see, you can use negative numbers too.
