Thread: Conky and kde4.3

    Default Conky and kde4.3

    Hi all,

    I have a problem with conky.

    It draws a black background instead of using pseudo-transparency. I ofc tried to achieve this with feh but to no avail.
    All the instructions here failed:
    Conky Hardcore! Conky transparency with KDE (3 and 4)

    Any help with the issue?

    here's my conky:

    Code:
    # set to yes if you want Conky to be forked in the background
    background yes
    
    #avoid flicker 
    double_buffer yes 
    
    #own window to run simultanious 2 or more conkys
    own_window yes
    own_window_type override
    own_window_transparent yes
    own_window_hints undecorate,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,below,skip_shadow
