    Conky is Killed when I click on unity desktop

    I have conky come up automatically as a startup program but anytime i click on the unity desktop the script kills itself and disappears. Its gotten so annoying that I have conky hotkeyed so that I can bring it back up again in case it falls down. I have 12.04, and this has not happened before with any previous distros.

    If you open the .conkyrc there is a section near the top of the syntax that may read as follows.
    Code:
    own_window_type normal
    You can try some different options here.
    Code:
    own_window_type conky
    Code:
    own_window_type desktop
    Code:
    own_window_type override
    Remember to save the changes and conky will disappear and reappear after the change has been saved. Test the different options and see if one solves the problem.
