Conky won't show everything


I have had a perfectly working conky setup for a few months now, and felt like updating it. The new setup is slightly longer that the old one. The only problem is that it stops displaying any more text after a certain line on my screen. There are 3 more lines below "IO Usage" that should be displaying, but they aren't. They aren't hidden off the screen, they just aren't being displyaed.

I also discovered that the top line always seems to be fixed at a certain point on the screen. It won't move up or down. Even if there are less lines of stuff to be displayed, the top line stays there, and there is a gap between conky and the bottom of the screen.

The first problem is the bigger one, but I have a feeling that they are both somehow related. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I can't swear this will work. I'm on a windows computer at work, so I haven't tested it.... Anyway, give this a try.

hope it helps

It's not the alignment of the window that is the problem. It still won't display anything after "IO Usage". It's like the window is fixed size and won't change no matter what I do.

It seems to be working now. I just changed a few settings about windows decorations and locking windows in place in Compiz. It looks like Compiz had something that made that window the same size every time conky started.
