conky transparency troubles in openbox mint11 (SOLVED)

Postby Richard85 on Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:57 pm

Contrary to what terminal shows in the image, I've since edited the .conkyrc file in my home folder and I still have the same transparency problem i.e. conky shows black black background instead of a transparent background.
I've also tried setting my background using feh as I've seen as a suggested fix.

Any help is appreciated and if this problem has already been solved, please provide the link. Thanks!!!

EDIT: I'm running Linux Mint 11 Katya

My apologies, I didn't see this forum post viewtopic.php?f=212&t=105282
I'll try that fix and see what happens!

Alright, that forum post worked for me:

I changed " own_window_argb_visual yes " to " own_window_argb_visual no " in my .conkyrc file.

Apologies for the extraneous post!!!
