Conky opens in wrong position/monitor

Postby FrankenCub on Fri Nov 02, 2012 9:54 pm

I'm new to Mint but not to Conky, after this switch in OS I can't seem to get my Conky to open in the right place. I've resolved several compatibility issues Ubuntu/Mint nad have it displaying good but when it starts, one of my conkys opens on the wrong monitor. It's seems like the weirdest thing to me. Never had this happen before. My weather will open on my lest monitor as it should but the hardware opens on the right monitor. If I take one line out and save the file, it closes then reopens in the correct position, but as a window. Reinsert that line and save, it closes then opens in the correct place.
Anything that should have to do with position should be in here.
First is for my hardware monitor...

Second is for my weather conky, which starts up in the correct place.

# Text alignment, other possible values are commented
alignment top_left
#alignment top_right
#alignment bottom_left

gap_y 15


The line I need to remove for my hardware monitor to start in the right place is here
Code: Select all
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager


That makes no sense to me why that line makes it display on the wrong monitor much less the wrong position.
Any ideas ?

They aren't auto starting on boot-up either and I'm sure my start files are correct, this has all worked on Ubuntu, but not Mint. I'm starting them in terminal for now.
