    Refresh your conky. Conky isn't really transparent, what it does is draws your background (where it is supposed to be) as it's window background. So when you swap your BG, it's still in the conky's cache.

    Depending on your font choices, you'll probably have to change the colors. I used images with my first conky, and when my mood changed, and subsequently my background, I had to redo my conky. But now I get to try new things and implement different orders. It's really almost like a mid-life crisis.

    Nice and clean. I do like that new fontstyle many people have picked up. I found a font that uses those little green army men, and i'm dying to find a use for them!!!

    Green army men... that takes me back. How many hours of childhood spent with those little guys. Sounds really cool for a font!

    You can't do conditionals between conky $if variable and LUA hook script.

    Only thing you can is to do conditionals entirely in LUA and ditch Conky $if variables.

    It is because the only LUA that you can use below TEXT is text processing Conky parsed script (no Cairo or Imlib2 in LUA here).

    But... what's a beauty of using LUA and Cairo in Conky... one can read a Conky variable in LUA script and use it so it wouldn't be a problem to check if MPD is running
    Code:
    if conky_parse($mpd_status) == "playing" then myfunction_ring else return end

    I'd like to thank everyone who helped me get this running. You guys are the best!

    Now it's on to an RSS feed and an Amarok thing.

    KDE is slow updating the config file you read to set the background.... it sometimes takes an hour to update... you could edit the file manually with kate, but I find the easiest way is to reboot as this forces a write.

    Also I noticed there are some irregularities in the wallpaper... set the wallpaper settings to "Scale", not "Scale and Crop" and it should look better.

    I kind of figured I'd have to reboot. I tried the way Mahngiel suggested, but they didn't change. Oh well. It's just a minor annoyance.

    Anyway, I want to thank you for your help. Without you and the others, I never would've figured it out.
