My setup running Fedora 22 MATE+Compiz. The dock is DockBarX, and I also have Guake installed as well. Once I get a globalmenu applet up and running it will be perfect (can anybody help me out with this on Fedora?).

Hmm, I'm trying out a new background image but now I really need to do something about my conky -- trouble is that I can end up sitting a fair way from the monitor it's on as I use this PC for watching movies and the like (on the other screen) so things have to be fairly large and I do like to keep an eye on processes.

But when you're watching a movie you have it full screen, right?

Movies, gaming (well, Second Life and Goat Simulator), Google Earth and the like are usually done on the 16:10 display next to it so this desktop is used for conky, email, admin, that kind of thing while I watch, play or whatever.
So being a function over form guy I ought not to mind that the background photograph is covered. I am hatching a plan to use my iPad as a third screen just for conky though as that could be fun if it works well enough -- leaving the 4:3 display for the usual tasks and a photo album the rest of the time.

If you're using conky v1.9 why not use:
Code:
own_window_type normal
own_window_transparent no # if using ARGB set to no
own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,sticky
own_window_colour 000000  # black - but any colour you want
## ARGB can be used for real transparency
own_window_argb_visual yes # Options: yes or no
## Valid range is 0-255, where 0 is 0 opacity, and 255 is 100% opacity.
own_window_argb_value 150
To give a semi-transparent black background to your conky as seen in these five conkys:


Also if I may suggest, you might have better luck with shadows vs outline.
Code:
draw_shades yes
default_shade_color 000000
draw_outline no #yes
default_outline_color D3D3D3
This is BunsenLabs powered by Debian Jessie

Thanks, Sector11, this is just one big, transparent, conky as smaller figures could be difficult to read. I'll have a look at shadows versus outline though, sounds like it ought to look better. The outline was because the coloring on my old background made the conky harder to read but this one is very different in color.

OK I realize that your conky was/is a wall-to-wall conky I was just trying to show how a general shadow background might help.

Made my test conky bigger and aliened it to the middle-middle to show here:

outline looks rough and shadow shows smooth but a tad harder to see I have to admit.

Now adding a background shade with ARGB
Code:
### ARGB can be used for real transparency
  own_window_argb_visual yes # Options: yes or no
### Valid range is 0-255, where 0 is 0% opacity, and 255 is 100% opacity.
  own_window_argb_value 150
allows you to see the wallpaper and the conky.

And while the outline is still rough but looks better with a shadow than without.
I still like the shadow around the font better even with a shadow background.

Linux is all about choices .. I'm just suggesting some ways to help you see your conky from the couch.

This is of course if you have a composite manager running. If you don't but still want the shadow and have lua capabilities you can use draw-bk.lua which does a whole bunch more.


OK - mandatory screenshot - BunsenLabs with one of the default conkys using draw-bk.lua and two others.

Wallpaper is plain, no text, no art.

Thanks, it is appreciated. I also don't think I explained too well -- I'm trying to think of ways to cover less of the background but still be able to see what's going on. Having a tinted background may well make things easier to read with a smaller font, so when I get some time I might mess with taht and try to take up less of the screen that way. Or, maybe, have the conky showing top information separately and smaller and try more gauges for CPU and memory though I'm not sure how CPU gauges would work with CPU scaling so I can see what speed my ores are at and how much CPU is being used (yeah, I know, I'm that much of a freak about things).
Edit: Yes, sorry, I have a composite manager running -- have to have my real transparency on terminals at the least and I like it for windows decorations and occasionally to see through windows forced to the top etc..
Nice wave picture too, by the way.
