I found this awesome theme for conky to make it look like google now but it really gets in the way on my desktop. I want to put it on my unlock screen just like mint has a clock on the unlock screen. I found this thread but it's old and unanswered. Any ideas? BTW I'm running saucy
I have put the following in /usr/lib/xscreensaver (in debian/CrunchBang) i use the name conkyslide for that file.
glslideshow -root -pan 0 -fade 3 -zoom 100 -titles -delay 10 & killall conky & conky -q &
remember to do "chmod +x" on the file.
a problem is "killall conky" that kills the desktop conky also
i am thinking of writing a script that reruns conky now and then to put it back on the desktop but has not yet done that.
a nother problem is that my conky does become transparent but black backgrounded.

this puts the conky on the screensaver. But stays for me during onlock.
