    Lost conky transparency on upgraded netbook. Saucy running fine otherwise

    Conky background is now black instead of transparent.

    Any help appreciated. I'm a conky novice.

    Just spotted this conky gui. Will try this later.

    Might play around with this (or combinations thereof) in the pre-TEXT area of your .conkyrc file...

    Code:
    ####
    ## Create 'own_window' type. Makes Conky behave like other panels.
    #
    own_window yes
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type normal
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    ####
    ## Some distros require the following lines for TRUE transparency.
    ## BOTH of these lines need to be Commented/Uncommented in tandem.
    #
    own_window_argb_visual yes
    own_window_argb_value 255
    ####
    ## Don't want TRUE transparency? (icons look janky on certain walls)
    ## Comment both of the lines above and Uncomment the line below.
    #
    # own_window_argb_visual no
    If you copy n' paste this code into your .conkyrc file, make sure it isn't duplicated elsewhere in the file.

    Thanks for help VinDSL. Just booted up again to check forum.

    This is an acer 1410 with intel graphics.
