    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Ah. That IS Conky then. It's not XFWM doing it. It was a Window Setting.

    Now you just have to change your font colour so it's all readable on the light background. And that's easy stuff. ...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    You've got XFCE4 Compositor running, right? If so, you can disable the argb_visual stuff, and just keep the own_window_transparent yes part.

    I've got an almost identical setup weather wise,...

    Don't you DARE see yourself as a pest! Through the problem you're having, I actually learned there was a problem between XFCE4.8.1 and Conky 1.8.1! NEVER would have learned that if you hadn't come...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I'll shortcut this a bit. I have XFCE4.8.1, Compositing on, and no transparency problem.

    I also have Conky 1.9.0-2 installed, where the people in that thread are saying they have 1.8.1 installed....

    AHA! You don't have a 3D compositor! You have the XFCE4 Compositor! NOW IT'S EASY!
    First: Forget the argb_visuals:



    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type normal

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Exactly. And dk75 was addressing that. Hence... She's in good hands. He was on a roll, I was trying to keep it going, since NoTryDo was veering it away. I shouldn't have to explain this.

    He's referring to the UBUNTU Composite manager. Unity, really, sucks hard. I was not aware it had got to this point, but dk75 is correct. If you're using pretty much any composite manager except...

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    You're using Conky 1.8.1-6. It has a problem with Gnome-Keyring, and also has this strange tendency to wait until the first interval before running any of the execi commands.

    Upgrade to Conky...
