I have Conky set to display my computer's IP address, and it would be nice if I could see this information even when the screen is locked. Is it possible to have Conky continue to be displayed even when the screen is locked? (That is, when the unlock dialog is visible, not during the screensaver.)

I'm running GNOME 3.6 and LightDM.

Like a screensaver? –  Uri Herrera Jan 11 '13 at 5:39
@UriHerrera - No, when the password dialog is visible. –  detly Jan 11 '13 at 5:40

@UriHerrera Yeah, I'm doing that already. But it doesn't appear on the locked screen. –  detly Jan 11 '13 at 5:45
