Conky in Window Only


I used Conky on the old Ubuntu rig and would really like to get it working on openSUSE however I have had an issue that I cannot seem to fix. When ever running Conky it appears in a window only. I have adjusted my .conkyrc file and still no luck. Heres my .conkyrc just to make sure I am not missing something.
