    Not familiar with the LXDE desktop.
    You would have to enable compositing or comment out(#) the argb line in your conkyrc.
    eg
    Code:
    #own_window_argb_visual yes
    Should give a transparent window with just the setting...

    Nah ,not really.
    Most of this stuff is in the manual pages.
    Just type man conky in a terminal.

    eg from man conky
    own_window_argb_visual
    Boolean, use ARGB visual? ARGB can be used for real transparency, note that a composite manager is required for real transparency. This option will not work as desired (in most cases) in conjunction with 'own_window_type override'.

    own_window_argb_value
    When ARGB visuals are enabled, this use this to modify the alpha value used. Valid range is 0-255, where 0 is 0% opacity, and 255 is 100% opacity.

    own_window_transparent
    Boolean, set transparency? If ARGB visual is enabled, sets background opacity to 0%.

    own_window_type
    if own_window is yes, you may specify type normal, desktop, dock, panel or override (default: normal). Desktop windows are special windows that have no window decorations; are always visible on your desktop; do not appear in your pager or taskbar; and are sticky across all workspaces. Panel windows reserve space along a desktop edge, just like panels and taskbars, preventing maximized windows from overlapping them. The edge is chosen based on the alignment option. Override windows are not under the control of the window manager. Hints are ignored. This type of window can be useful for certain situations.
    ....and for easier searching of man pages install man2html...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install man2html
    Then create a bookmark in your web browser called Manual Pages with the the link address as...
    Code:
    http://localhost/cgi-bin/man/man2html

    Wow, been a long time since a post here on the ginormous Conky thread! Here's my latest. Going back to the simplistic look.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Here's the one I'd been using right before that! Thought it was cool because at the time I was doing some work between "Shotwell" and "Gimp" which was maxing out the CPU bars! This was all done through (*cough-cough*) borrowing Conky's from Sector11 (The Master), and McLovin's Bars Conky. Not sure where the original Horizontal Calendar Conky came from, but I got a lot of help from Sector11 on that one as well...

    Did a little work on my bars now that the pesky "too many fonts" issue seems to be dealt with for the moment. Alfios font really isn't the best for bar making as it is too thin and dulls the color shades too much. I changed to Impact font and the colors are much brighter now. Also went from "|" to "/"; I think it improves the look a bit.

    Also @Jedcurtis, could you post your code for your calendar? I like that setup.

    Sure here you go. It involves 3 files and some manual configuration on your part. In the timeconkyrc file you'll obviously need to change the paths to wherever you put your conkycal.sh script, as well as your day-night.template file. You'll also need to find your specific weather location code from either weather.com or intellicast.com. Sorry I can't remember which one I got mine from. Sector11 may be of help there as well as with other questions regarding this particular Conky. He has put a lot of time into it just for my benefit, so he knows a lot more about it than me!!! It also requires that conkyForecast be installed. Here's the 3 files you'll need;

    The conkyrc file which I called timeconkyrc

    Code:

    You shouldn't have to make any changes to the conkycal.sh script, however, the day-night.template file will need you city's location code as mentioned above. Good luck!!!

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Yea, I've been playing with that calendar script for at least 3 years now. Really nice. mobildiesel wrote the original ...

    It also uses a language file to translate the week day name (short of course) that you do not need if you use it in English only. It hasn't changed a lot from the earlier versions when it became a horiz/vert calendar with languages.

    @ Jedcurtis

    Thanks for the code. Of course I had to modify it a bit to suite my needs...

    Screenshot - 05302013 - 07:40:09 PM.png

    I stripped it down, added a shaded background, and a Moogle was desperately needed as well.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Hi there. I'm fairly new to linux. Just got my Chromebook setup running xfce, and I've done a little tweaking to get the desktop where I want it. I really liked the Gotham conky config. It was simplistic and fit my needs. I figured if I got it working I could always add more to it. It is working but I seem to have a problem. I'm seeing the following error in a terminal, and I don't know how to fix it.

    Conky: setmntent /etc/mtab: No such file or directory

    This just continues to loop so I worry about impact on my cpu. It's basically the default config with just a few minor tweaks for fonts and transparency. I've tried making a mtab directory to see what would happen. If I do that conky immediatly closes and I get a segmentation fault error. I've tried installed the various different versions thru synaptic, conky-std and conky-all both get the same errors. I would appreciate any help. Thanks
