    3. scroll to this line :# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)

    4.change the directly under to read
    Code:
    own_window_type_override yes
    5.save and close the editor.

    The whole section should look like this.
    Code:
    # Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
    own_window_type_override yes
    own_window_type desktop
    own_window_transparent yes
    #own_window_hints yes
    Use Alt + F2 to run conky.
    Hi Frogs Hair,
    Thanks for your instructions, but when setup conky like recommended, there is an other problem:
    all files and folders on the desktop are invisible, but when i move the mouse over the desktop the icons under the mouse pointer appear for a second and then disappear again.
    Do you have any solution for that?
    Thanks

    own_window_type_override yes
    own_window_type desktop

    own_window_transparent yes
    #own_window_hints yes
    Delete the line
    Code:
    own_window_type_override yes
    and change the line own_window_type desktop to
    Code:
    own_window_type override

    When using own_window_type override windows are not under the control of the window manager. Hints are ignored.Windows are below and sticky.

    When using own_window_type normal windows are under the control of the window manager and you must include another setting in the config for hints
    eg
    Code:
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    own_window_type desktop causes problems when using nautilus to draw the desktop.(ie icons on the desktop)

    I am having the same problem on 12.04/Unity, except that conky just winks out for a second, then comes back. None of the suggestions in this thread have helped, any other suggestions?
