    I need some help though, it's almost completely working, but there are a few things that need fixing.

    First off, the temperature. The CPU temperature doesn't display anything, and the hard disk temperature displays two of them. I've tried cutting out lines and I'm sure that the hard disk line is generating two temperatures and it's not a spacing issue. At least I think. Taking out the CPU line displys two and taking out the hd line displays none.

    Here's the code:
    Code:
    ${GOTO 36}CPU:${GOTO 120}${execi 4 sensors | grep -A 0 'temp2' | cut -c15-18} ºC
    ${GOTO 36}Hard disk:${GOTO 120}${execi 4 sensors | grep -A 0 'temp1' | cut -c15-18} ºC
    Also, if I wanted the Rhythmbox section to display the cover of the album from the song playing, how would I do that? That feature didn't come with the Rhythmbox script I got, but I figure I could manually add it with the ${image } tag. how do I find the location of whatever image Rhythmbox is currently displaying as the album cover?
    type

    Code:
    sensors
    into a terminal and that should help you figure out what is going on

    you will see 2 entries for temp1, which is why you see 2 temps

    have a look here for ways to get sensor info into conky

    *** I can run my conky from a terminal and I have no problem. The background disappearing issue happens when conky is started automatically when I login.
    The disappearing background problem is still happening when I start conky in a terminal, just not as often. There are no error messages in the terminal.

    unfortunately I have no clue as to what can be causing this

    no errors in the terminal suggests that it isnt a problem that can be fixed by looking in the lua script

    the lua background isn't "malfunctioning" as it were... otherwise you would get an error during the times it disappears

    the only thing i can suggest is to try some variations in the own_window_type in the conkyrc settings

    there is a program called screenruler which can help with getting the right numbers (the program is exactly what you would expect it to be from the title)
    Thanks for the tip. I will definitely try it. One concern I have is that I would have some different size fonts on one and I don't want them to have the same vertical position... but I guess it stands to reason that if there is a goto X, then...

    then there is ${voffset X}
    can be positive or negative and also works in pixels

    this page describes all the variables available in conky
    http://conky.sourceforge.net/variables.html

    this page tells you about the alignment and placement options in particular

    Ok, thanks for the reply.

    A lot of people, myself included, use both $goto and $voffset. They're real handy things to know. I didn't use them until recently because I didn't understand $voffset.
