How to set min size (?) of a System monitor widget placed on panel bar?

Hi, I'm not sure if this is a suitable place to ask, but I can't construct the right question to search for information in Google :confused:

I have a standard panel bar and placed a few System monitor widgets there. For some reason, the size of one widget is smaller than its content.



How I can set it a size to show the full text?

I believe you may have better outcome by finding the github project of this widget and asking there (or on kde store if it's there).

I couldn't by just searching for Sensor Details Widget, but maybe in the ABOUT in your screenshot there is a link and you can find who created it.

Considering your specific question, that's how I would approach it.

Can you rename the value something shorter? Just "disk" would be enough to distinguish from the other values in the widget.

I'm not sure if this will do a thing for me

And this is why - sometimes it shrinks even labels like "CPU" :face_with_spiral_eyes:

As a temporary workaround, for now, you can add spaces to the name of the monitor parameter until the text will be visible.
