I recently upgraded from 12.04 tot 14.04, gnome flashback Compiz. Conky tranparant behaves abnormally now and I can't fix it.
Transparency turned off, conky acts normally. Transparency turned on, it is as if upon each refresh, the previous layer isn't removed, so they stack onto eachother.
I've tried all sorts of combinations of the relevant section in .conkyrc but to no avail...
Relevant lines in .conkyrc:
## Create own window in instead of using desktop? # own_window yes own_window_transparent yes #own_window_type normal own_window_type override own_window_class conky-semi #own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager #### ## Some distros also require the following 2 lines. # #own_window_argb_visual yes #own_window_argb_value 0
I've recently noticed it's variable: it always does this right after startup or 'conky' in terminal, but after a while it stops (so conky's normal), but then after a variable time interval, the 'stacking' starts again...
NB the more I look at it, the more I think it could be a window compositing or window manager and NOT a conky issue. Strange, because apart from the conky refresh issue, the system is running flawlessly (so far...)
Thanks for any help
