    Also, another question about the threshold color. I want to change the color to 000099 instead of 0000FF. I’ve entered the color on the applicable lines, but it only seems to work on some. For example:
    DISKIO=active:1,interval:10,style:b,chart:1,threshold:10240,tcolor:000099,display:r:%1[3.1b]B/s\, w:%2[3.1b]B/s\
    works fine, but
    PHYSICALRAM=active:1,interval:5,style:b,chart:1,threshold:75,tcolor:000099,display:%1[3.1b]B / %2[3.1b]B (%3%)
    still shows as 0000FF when the threshold is crossed. Any idea what’s causing this?

    You didn’t state what version you have so I assume 1.9.2. I tried your config and it changed color as expected.

    Yes, I have 1.9.2

    I did a little more testing and confirmed what I thought I was seeing by sampling a screenshot with GIMP. One of the colors is definitely being misrepresented. The misrepresentation is present no matter what I set the color code to, although it doesn’t seem to be off by a standard same amount. Also tried removing the background transparency, but still the same issue.

    And if it makes a difference, I accidentally switched the two lines above. PHYSICALRAM displays fine, but DISKIO is off.

    How do you mean ‘misrepresented’? What is it actually displaying? What does gimp think the color is?

    You can see it in this screenshot here:

    The tcolor value is the same for the entire Desktop Info config (000099 in BGR). Physical Ram & Page Faults display correctly, but the color for Disk IO is off. When I sample it, GIMP tells me it is 630000 (or 000063 in BGR).

    But as I mentioned above, it’s not consistent. If I change the tcolor value to 990000 (in BGR) for example, then the Disk IO color changes to 0f1b30 (in BGR).
