Description billgrzanich 2022-05-27 20:48:11 UTC
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
conky v. 1.12.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure conky to use any of the wireless_* variables with the package provided by Fedora 36. 

Actual results:
When conky launches, the following appears:

conky: unknown variable '$wireless_essid'
conky: unknown variable '$wireless_link_qual_perc'
conky: unknown variable '$wireless_link_bar'

Expected results:
Wireless variables are recognized and displayed accordingly.

Additional info:
This line in ConkyBuildOptions.cmake should be set to true prior to rebuilding the package.

$ conky --version
