    Try
    Code:
    own_window_type desktop
    own_window_transparent yes
    #own_window_argb_visual yes

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Makes no difference.

    From what I have read so far, its related to the way ubuntu us running the background. Conky I believe looks at the root background but ubuntu 13.04 is not using it like that.

    Something else that I have detected when:
    Code:
    double_buffer no
    and
    Code:
    own_window no
    the transparency works but then you have the annoying flicker.

    Then I'm guessing, and it's only a guess, that something in the new Install changed.

    Does it use the same conky version? Do you have "conky-all" installed or just conky?
    I have conky-all installed.

    What desktop are you logging in to...
    Code:
    echo $DESKTOP_SESSION
    Attach one of your weather icons so I can test here on 13.04.

    Hello, all!

    Amazing thread, great work!

    First off I would like to give credit for this post to Rob Graves he has a perfect configuration. I would like to use the came config though I don't have a config file . Would anyone mind helping out?
    Here is the layout I am looking for (I am planning on color matching later):

    Can you repost this conky code along with the lines that produce the images you used. No other code necessary.

    If it works here, my "guess" is it has to do with the new Ubuntu.

    @ gixxer675

    A few things ...
    1. What fonts, are involved in the conky.
    2. Do you have an 8 core Intel CPU?
    3. What script is used for the clock and calendar?
    4. I don't use clementine (can't help)
    5. I'm guessing he's using wlan or some other wireless connection from that signal strength (I don't use that) do you?
    6. Are you using a composite manager? If yes, which one? It does matter for transparency.

    What I'm getting at is; building a conky is a personal process and built for your machine.

    robgraves is a member of the Arch forms, why not ask him for a copy of the conky. Then you'd only need to edit it.
