I'm new to conky and I finally have a config file put together I'm happy with. However, I have one more problem.
If I set "own_window" to no conky shows up fine and the background is transparent, and everything looks pretty. BUT, my desktop icons don't show up unless I move the mouse over them.
If I set "own_window" to yes, and use "own_window_transparent yes" the desktop icons show up fine, but the background of conky is no longer transparent, even though I set it to be.
Anybody know why this is happening? Thanks
