Just forgot and can't find - how to fix conky disapearing on Mate with desktop icons?
I'd like to have both: conky and desktop icons - is it possible?

Check the contents of the Aur-Acros for example

the lines that matter the most are these

Code: Select all


	own_window = true,							-- create your own window to draw
	own_window_argb_value = 100,			    -- real transparency - composite manager required 0-255
	own_window_argb_visual = true,				-- use ARGB - composite manager required
	own_window_class = 'Conky',					-- manually set the WM_CLASS name for use with xprop
	own_window_colour = '#000000',				-- set colour if own_window_transparent no
	own_window_hints = 'undecorated,below,above,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager',  -- if own_window true - just hints - own_window_type sets it
	own_window_transparent = false,				-- if own_window_argb_visual is true sets background opacity 0%
	own_window_title = 'system_conky',			-- set the name manually  - default conky "hostname"
	own_window_type = 'desktop',				-- if own_window true options are: normal/override/dock/desktop/panel
It is the text behind it that helps you.

Start with changing

own_window_type = 'desktop',

to the other possibilities.

If not working then combo's with

own_window = true,
own_window_argb_value = 100,
own_window_argb_visual = true,
own_window_transparent = false,
