Couple of Conky questions?


Conky version 1.9.0
Bodhi Version started as 3.2.1 but now I'm not exactly clear on what version it is after updates/upgrades. I assume 4.2 now.

$ uname -a
Bodhi 4.2.0-30-generic #36~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Feb 26 18:49:23 UTC 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Anyway I can't seem to get Conky transparent, It always covers the desktop with a black background.
Here is the screenshot of desktop and Conky code.
I would also like to get it to auto start.
As for now I have to start at terminal type conky and close terminal.

to get mine to autostart, i used the swami control panel as directed (if i recall correctly) by Sweater Fish Deluxe. to open swami i click on quick launcher and start typing "swami". i double click the first icon that has the name swami and that opens the control panel. at the bottom is a button for startup applications. the next screen has "startup commands" at the bottom. at the bottom of the next screen is a box you can type the startup command and then make sure to press the button at bottom right that says "add command".

Code:
own_window yes
own_window_type override # options are: normal/override/dock/desktop/panel
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_argb_value 0
#own_window_argb_visual yes
#own_window_class'conky'
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_page
you need to play with these settings.
i suggest putting a # in front of ( = commenting out) own_window_argb_value 0.
also the very last word is a typo, it should say skip_pager.

also read the docs:
Code:
man conky
and see what conky spits out when you start it from a terminal.
