    Question Google Calendar on desktop

    Hello all!

    I am trying to get my Google Calendar to display on my desktop using Conky, however it is only displaying my calendar partially. I am running Ubuntu 12.10 with Xfce 4.10 desktop environment.

    Here is my current conkyrc file:

    Code:
    alignment top_right
    background no
    border_width 0
    cpu_avg_samples 2
    default_color white
    default_outline_color white
    default_shade_color white
    draw_borders no
    draw_graph_borders yes
    draw_outline no
    draw_shades no
    use_xft yes
    xftfont DejaVu Sans Mono:size=12
    gap_x 5
    gap_y 60
    minimum_size 5 5
    net_avg_samples 2
    double_buffer yes
    out_to_console no
    out_to_stderr no
    extra_newline no
    own_window yes
    own_window_class Conky
    own_window_type override
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    stippled_borders 0
    update_interval 1.0
    uppercase no
    use_spacer none
    show_graph_scale no
    show_graph_range no
    text_buffer_size 8096
    
    TEXT
    ${execi 300 gcalcli --nc --cals=owner calw 4}
    Note: When I run Conky, I get the following output in my terminal:

    Code:
    Conky: desktop window (1200003) is subwindow of root window (dc)
    Conky: window type - override
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x3e00001)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer

    I am interested in Conky, but haven't yet done much with calendars. Re-post your question here, and I guarantee someone will answer with a great solution rather quickly.
