"execi' missing - Conky

I install the conky-all package. One of my conky configs invokes "execi" but it's missing. I did a search on the drive and in apt to no avail.

Anyone know what I'm missing? Alternatives?

Perhaps it's better to post the total line which uses that command, so we can have a better look at the problem/issue and provide the right advice/solution.

You can also look here to get a better perspective how to use the command needed for conky.


execi 100 cat ~/.cache/weather.json

This is the command in the conky config

Looking at the examples from the link I suggested you should change the line to this;

${execi 100 cat ~/.cache/weather.json}

@dasjdoom is correct conky needs the { } brackets
