I've Googled and ransacked the forum looking for an answer. I have Conky with lua on Arch KDE4 and I cannot run both together without creating an unwanted background. After getting sidetracked with KDE4 transparency considerations, I discovered that if I start Conky without Lua, I can get proper transparency. If I start Conky with Lua enabled I get a background color. The Lua script doesn't seem to have any background settings. I'm not sure what files are relevant to post, the conkyrc and or the Lua script, which is quite large. I'm reasonably au fait with Conky but this is the first Conky I cannot get to function correctly. My basic question is how to use Lua without starting a background color. Here is where I got the original files http://www.linuxandlife.com/2012/06/get
… -your.html . Of course, I can post the relevant Lua file if necessary but, as I mentioned, it is quite large and I'm not clear on forum rules regarding posting large files of this type. Here's how Conky starts Lua:
Thanks for your time.
