    [SOLVED] How to move Conky to a specific spot on desktop?

    Hi

    I have Conky up and running but I have an issue with it. When I download something to my desktop it seems to always get put under Conky, so I have to $ killall conky to stop it, so I can move it. I am using dual monitors with twinview so both monitors form one large screen. I want Conky on the left monitor, but on the right side, right now it is on the left. Is there a way to move it to the right side? When I tried Alignment center, it just moved it to the left side of the left monitor

    # position
    alignment top_right
    gap_x 0
    gap_y 0


    increase from 0 in each line to move further away from whichever corner is specified in alignment

    Add ${voffset *} and ${offset *} to change the vertical and horizontal position, respectively.

    you can put in:

    own_window_hints below


    to keep it from ever being on top of other applications as well

    It already has this in that line...

    Code:
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    Is there somewhere that explains what all the commands mean, and a list of colors it can use?
