[SOLVED] Conky 100% transparent bg with Compiz

Enabling the Compiz Wallpaper (diffrent wallpaper at different desktop) with disabled nautilus/xfdesktop to draw on it..
How to make conky seems not to lose the transparency?

Was conky working fine before you made the changes? What is your config?

Hmm, I'm not too sure then. Have you tried asking in the compiz IRC channel? #compiz on freenode. Also these might be relevant:

Good luck!

I havn't asked in IRC! thanx for reminding!
yup have gone through both and tested already! they aren't doing 100% trasparent background!
They are using compiz opacity to make the conky window 50% trasparent (physically speaking translucent)
