    Conky disappears when I click on desktop when compiz is enabled

    When I have Compiz enabled Conky disappears when I click anywhere on the desktop.

    Linux Voyager (xubuntu xfce 12.10)

    I have tried to search Google for a solution. I added some exceptions in compiz settings manager for window rules, I tried to put conky into compiz's widget layer and I have tried to change lines in ~/.conkyrc but nothing ever changes. I'm not even sure that conky reads the .conkyrc file as I don't see any changes (after logging out and logging in again, or restarting conky from terminal). It keeps disappearing when I click on the desktop no matter what I do. On application auto-start conky also seems to have a short delay on it, which doesn't seem to solve the problem either.

    Now I am clueless on what to try next, thus I registered here to post a thread and ask about the matter.

    My .conkyrc at the moment looks like this:
    own_window yes
    own_window_class Conky
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_type override
    Sorry if this is the wrong place, but I didn't find any sub-forums under absolute beginners.
