You may be right ... one of a few old ones: 3 Canon SLR's (FTBn, A-1 & AE-1) and all the gadgets plus a darkroom for B&W... that ages me.

I 'help' clean house, wife likes that.
I have a tool box and do home repairs for self and MIL. MIL likes that, wife loves it.

Conky keeps me out of trouble, wife likes that. And she is so computer savvy she thinks I should be selling them. She doesn't understand 'free'.

Is breathing a hobby?

That is a lot of Conky going on.
I like that you got the transparency to work. Transparency with Openbox is easy, but I was unable to make it work with Fluxbox. There was a black background behind the Conky.

@ lproe

Please ... from a user, not a mod, go back to your previous posts and put the conkys in [ code] and [ /code] (without the space) tags.

In edit mode, highlight the code and then click on the # in the menu above:
Code:
the code here
^^^^^^ like this.

To see it, hit [Quote] for this post below ... and you will see how.

Personally I prefer:
Code:
# if own_window is yes, you may specify type normal, desktop, dock, panel or override (default: normal).
own_window_type normal
It allows me to centre-click or right-click on the conky for menus:


"normal" will open these as my "options" and I can pick and choose:
Code:
# If own_window is yes, these window manager hints may be used
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
I frequently do not use "sticky" as I run different conkys on different desktops.

However, how best to configure your conky depends on your system, DE or WM and composite manager to name a few roadblocks.
Above is Debian SID with OpenBox - and it works in Crunchbang - since it is Debian Stable and OpenBox.

Settings above TEXT
Quote:
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.

EDIT:
Your conky ... as is - causes some really weird stuff here.

I'm glad you didn't take it wrong.

The first - about the [ code] blocks is pretty standard "Forum Etiquette" everywhere.

The second part about "desktop" vs "normal" is something I have learned over time. As well as the havoc that various 'composite' have on conky.
