    Hi ramjitmyrtle,

    It doesn't matter where the ${image} command is used. I suggest that it be tacked on to the end of an existing line so the command doesn't actually use a "line on the screen". And if you don't use ${goto xx} or ${voffset xx} to move the text the text will always be over the image as seen in the first example below.

    Code:
    TEXT
    ${image ~/Conky/images/clock.png -p 500,0 -s 150x150}
    ${image ~/Conky/images/network3.png -p 200,0 -s 150x150}${voffset 50}${font LCDMono:bold:size=11}${color3}${time %H:%M} ${color0}${time %b %y}${font}${color}${voffset -10}${color}${font DejaVu Sans Mono:bold:size=9}${execpi 3600 $HOME/Conky/scripts/conkycal.sh -l es|sed 's/^/\${goto 105}/'}  ${voffset -08}${font LCDMono:bold:size=11}${color3}UP:${color0}${uptime_short}${color}${font}${image ~/Conky/images/Messenger.png -p 0,0 -s 150x150}
    If you notice there are only 2 lines after TEXT.

    The first line calls the clock on the extreme right:
    Code:
    ${image ~/Conky/images/clock.png -p 500,0 -s 150x150}
    The first command on the second line calls in the network globe in the centre of the conky:
    Code:
    ${image ~/Conky/images/network3.png -p 200,0 -s 150x150}
    and the last command on the second line calls the messenger image that is the first image you see:
    Code:
    ${image ~/Conky/images/Messenger.png -p 0,0 -s 150x150}
    So you see it doesn't matter "where" the ${image} command is, what is important here is the "position" (-p) the image is placed in.

    Text will always be over an image, you need to use ${goto xx} or ${voffset xx} commands to move the text away from the images as you see in the second image example.

    If you need help with your conky, show us the code.

    EDIT:
    By simply changing the -p of the network image I can move it below the text:
    Code:
    ${image ~/Conky/images/network3.png -p 200,90 -s 150x150}

    Have a nice day.

    Hi ramjitmyrtle

    Try this ... difficult with out the actual size of your son's picture, so I used a floppy disk image, but you will get the idea:

    Code:
    TEXT
    ${voffset 130}${color d40000}${hr 3}${color orange}${image ~/ej.JPG -p 0,0}
    ${goto 60}${font URW Gothic L:size=16}ramjitmyrtle${font}
    ${color d40000}${voffset -2}${hr 3}${color orange}
    ${goto 80}${font SF Square Head:bold:size=20}${time %H:%M}${font}
    ${goto 42} ${font URW Gothic L:bold:size=9}${time %Y %B %d %A}${font}
    ${voffset 2}
    ${color d40000}SYSTEM ${voffset -2}${hr 3}${color orange}
    This is the important part the first line:
    ${voffset 130}${color d40000}${hr 3}${color orange}${image ~/ej.JPG -p 0,0}

    That ${voffset 130} will move your conky down, increase or decrease it until the ${hr 3} is just below your sons picture. I had to change fonts etc just to give you a sample.

    Have a nice day.

    @Iceman600: please post what you have in the conky config file here so we can look at how it is set up...


    My first guess is the own_window_type setting needs to be set to desktop

    || Kubuntu x86_64 (15.10 Dev.) || KDE 4.9.00 ||
    || Dell Inspiron 570 || 8GB PC3-10600 DDR3 RAM || AMD Phenom II X4 820 @ 2.8Ghz ||
    || Logitech M570 Trackball || Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard ||
    Conky: ... no such configuration: 'normal'

    set it up like that
    Code:
    # Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
    own_window no
    
    # If own_window is yes, you may use type normal, desktop or override
    own_window_type desktop
    
    # Use pseudo transparency with own_window?
    own_window_transparent yes
    I'm a super power user

    Maybe you need a longer start up delay in your conky start up script? (it's the sleep command).

    I use own_window_type override too in most of my conkies, but I start conky with a launcher on a panel (so I get the chance to log on to a network and connect to the internet before starting conky).

    http://conky.sourceforge.net/config_settings.html says :
    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.
