I have ${top cpu 1} that show me for example 13.34. Is it possible to round this to 13?

  • I think it is not possible directly, but use execi to do something like this answer as workaround.

You can write a small bit of lua code to do this for you. For example, in your ~/.conkyrc:

conky.config = {
    lua_load = '/tmp/mylua.lua',
conky.text = [[
 ${lua conky_myfun ${top cpu 1}}

and in file /tmp/mylua.lua

     function conky_myfun(arg)
      local n = conky_parse(arg)
      return math.floor(tonumber(n)+.5)

This calls conky_myfun with the given arg. The function evaluates the arg to get the value, it is converted to a number, and rounded to the nearest integer.
