My Conky disappear after clicking on Desktop

#1 Post by ldsemerchen » Wed Feb 14, 2018 5:19 am

I just respined my MX 17 pure Mate edition and enabled Conky after booting up. But the Conky disappeared when I clicked on Desktop. Please give me some advice if you know why. Thanks in advance!
I ran it on USB live.

Is compositing enabled? Which compositor?

You may need to play around with the conky script itself.

IIRC, the main line to check is "own_window_type".

If the setting right now is "desktop", try changing that to "normal", or vice versa.

It's not the conky, it's the desktop you put it on.
