[SOLVED] Problem With conky and or xcompmgr

So I tried to search for this issue but i don't know quite how to explain through words on what is going on. basically i got corky installed. and so when i login my screen all around corky doesn't refresh. and i believe this to be because of xcompmgr. because thats when I installed it that is when my problem started. so here is a screenshot

Do you still have the problem if xcompmgr isn't running?

Re: [SOLVED] Problem With conky and or xcompmgr

no i don't have the problem when xcompmgr is running (lol didn't mean corky!! kept thinking about league of legends xD) but the problem is that if i don't have xcompmgr running that i don't have true trnasparancy on guake or any of my other applications. what i believe it to be is that maybe conky doesn't do so well with compositing. because this also has happened to me with compiz. but i know it has to be possible to combine the two! i've seen it done all over youtube. but i keep getting this problem. any suggestions? and thanks for the quick response big_smile

Are you starting conky before or after xcompmgr?  Try starting it after.
