Kwin and conky do not play nice together. afaik, there is no easy fix for that other than changing window manger to eg. openbox, running KDE/openbox.

Change
Code: Select all
minimum_size 200
to
Code: Select all
minimum_size 100x200


this should reduce the size down

For
Code: Select all
own_window_type desktop
I use
Code: Select all
own_window_type normal


In the own_window part add
Code: Select all
own_window_class Conky


If you want to make it more transparent add these 2 lines to the own_window part

Code: Select all
own_window_argb_visual yes

Code: Select all
own_window_argb_value 95


You can change the value to get the level of transparency you want..

Below is what I use

Code: Select all
own_window yes
own_window_transparent no
own_window_argb_visual yes
own_window_argb_value 95
own_window_class Conky
own_window_type normal
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
