I want to set the color of a line to a specific shade of yellow (but not just yellow).

I set it like this:

  ${font LCDMono:bold:size=20}${color yellow}Uptime:$color $uptime

Where all the line has a font size of 20, and only the word "Uptime" will be yellow. The thing is that I don't want it in that kind of yellow, I want it in a more pale yellow (#FCD862 in hexa).

How can I do that?


Conky lets you define your own color:

colorN : Predefine a color for use inside TEXT segments. Substitute N by a digit between 0 and 9, inclusively. When specifying the color value in hex, omit the leading hash (#).

So, add this line before the TEXT part of conkyrc:

color1 FCD862

Then, use $color1 instead of $color:

${font LCDMono:bold:size=20}${color1}Uptime:$color $uptime
