Regarding specifically 'water effects.'

I'm not sure how it happened, but I think It occured after my failed attempt at installing conky.

My rain drops only display over menus, windows and top/bottom panels there are no concentric rings over my desktop.

I have performed a complete removal of conky.

I have the Heron.

In recognizing that that this is not critical I feel almost silly for wasting anyones time with it. But i really like it when it works.

What happens if you disable desktop effects? (Places - Preferences - Theme - Desktop Effects - None)

there is no path as described places>pref>theme>desktop>effects>none. Rather I have system>pref>appearance>theme> but there is no "desktop," or "none". Rather there is customize, install and save as.
