Conky Issues with xfce

I've searched lots of different forums, and tried all different ways of getting conky to be semi-transparent. It worked in KDE.

Attempts to tweak settings result in one of these:
1) Conky starting at boot, but being covered by my wallpaper.
2) A black background behind the conky window.

My .conkyrc:

own_window_argb_visual yes
own_window_argb_value 75
own_window_class Conky
own_window yes
own_window_transparent no
#own_window_type desktop

draw_borders no
draw_shades no

own_window_type override
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

default_color fff
#default_color grey

background yes

use_xft yes
xftfont Sans:size=10
xftalpha 0.5
 
update_interval 1
double_buffer yes
 
alignment top_right
gap_x 6
gap_y 2
 
minimum_size 200 768
maximum_width 200
maximum_height 768

As you can see, I have many things commented out that I've tried to use to get semi transparency.

Thank you for the help.

My solution:

Right click on the desktop and click "Desktop Settings". After that conky becomes transparent. smile
