    Make sure it says "no".
    That kinda fixed the problem (Thanks!) but theres a new one; the conky is really glitchy, everytime I drag my mouse over it it dissapears, it randomly flickers, etc

    I'm not 100% sure on this, but try removing this line in your conkyrc file:

    own_window_type override

    OR replace it with:

    own_window_type desktop

    (the desktop is the default value, so if you remove override, it will just default to desktop. produces the same effect)

    you should visit the .conkyrc thread to get some good ideas on .conkyrc files...you need think like "background yes" "double_buffer yes"...etc
    Own_Window yes....and on and on...also visit conky website

    Replacing it with "desktop" doesnt help, its still really glitchy. Removing the line completely makes conky not appear at all..

    Well, my next suggestion was going to be what spiderbatdad said. Check out some of the conkyrc files that people have posted and give them a whirl. Then modify them from there.

    Re: Conky Problems

    Thanks guys, using one of the files there did the trick... seems that my config file was screwed over for some reason.

    Thanks guys for helping me solve another problem.. This is why I love ubuntu, if I had a similar problem in windows, I would never solve it
