    conky trouble

    So I have spent about two hours working on getting conky to work 100% correctly and i am pretty close to where I started.
    Things i want to fix
    conky disapears when I click the go to desktop button. How can I make it stay.
    conky turns white (fixed already)

    I think only you need is put this line code on your file ->

    own_window_type override

    Re: conky trouble

    When using own_window_type override
    disable argb transparency...
    Code:
    own_window yes
    own_window_type override
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,below
    #own_window_argb_visual yes
    #own_window_argb_value 0
    Override windows are not under the control of the window manager....own_window_hints are ignored.

    OR

    you could use...
    Code:
    own_window yes
    own_window_type normal
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,below
    own_window_argb_visual yes
    own_window_argb_value 0
    Normal windows are under the control of the window manager.
    So you need to use ccsm to disable shadow to the conky window
    Code:
    (any) & !(class=Conky)

    and also stop the conky window from being minimized when you show the desktop.

    That seams to have fixed it. I tried changing it to override and conky became black. So I used normal with making the settings change in compizConfig.
