.conkycolors transparency?

Postby beadmaze on Sat Jun 16, 2012 7:12 am

i installed conkycolors from http://helmuthdu.deviantart.com/art/CONKY-COLORS-244793180 and everything regarding installation, starting at startup and so on went fine. i choosed the cairo variant which starts with
Code: Select all
conky-colors --cairo --cpu=2 --clock=cairo --network --theme=blue
. so far so good.
except: transparency.
it looks like that

hmm...

my conkyrc reads like this:

${endif}${endif}${endif}

so transparency is "set to": yes [if i interpret
own_window_transparent yes
correctly]

any hints?
suggestions?
help?

it may be interesting: i'm running LMDE with MATE, fully updated

First, I am a 3 week old Mint user. I just started playing with conky. I'm editing my default conky.conf file and I do have transparency working. I think if you change own_window_argb_value to 0 instead of 180 you may see a difference. I'm not sure but I think the values range from 0 fully transparent to 100 fully opague. Mine is set to 0.
