Weird Conky behaviour [SOLVED]

Postby dox_drum » Mon Feb 20, 2012 7:24 am

Dear all,

I've been using Mint 12 for about 2 month now. I installed conky and is working, however, when I click in the desktop... boom, conky goes away! Same happens from time to time when I close a window.

Any clues about what's happening?

THX

DOX.

Open ~/.conkyrc and see if this section reads the same as mine.

# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
own_window yes
own_window_type normal
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager


If it doesn't read the same then change it so it does.

Back up the old file first.
