Re: Conky disappears on show desktop

Conky is being minimized along with all other windows.
Try to change own_window_type normal to own_window_type override and see if that helps.

Re: Conky disappears on show desktop

own_window_type override bypasses own_window_hints that's why conky is above the windows, however i'm not sure how to get both desired effects with nautilus. I have actually never ran conky in gnome. I'll do some research, does anyone else have an idea?

own_window_hints  undecorated,below,above,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    If own_window is yes, you may use these window manager hints to affect the way Conky displays. Notes: Use own_window_type desktop as another way to implement many of these hints implicitly. If you use own_window_type override, window manager hints have no meaning and are ignored.

own_window_type
    if own_window is yes, you may specify type normal, desktop or override (default: normal). Desktop windows are special windows that have no window decorations; are always visible on your desktop; do not appear in your pager or taskbar; and are sticky across all workspaces. Override windows are not under the control of the window manager. Hints are ignored. This type of window can be useful for certain situations.

You could try own_window_type desktop but im not sure if it will minimize again.

Re: Conky disappears on show desktop

i'm pretty sure there's a whole hoard of gnome+conky users who could confirm this, but own_window_type desktop is what you want.  you don't need own_window_hints with this type either.

using the type/hints approach in the OP is a workaround for some version of KDE (IIRC).  in most cases, the desktop type is what people use.

Re: Conky disappears on show desktop

For me, the following works in Gnome:

own_window yes
own_window_hints undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override

The problem I had with 'own_window_type desktop' was that clicking the desktop itself made conky disappear.
