Q: Transparency doesn't work! Why is this and how can I fix it?
A: Conky uses "pseudo"-transparency. What this means is that is not a truly "transparent" window. What it does is read the background of the root window, and changes it's own background to the section of the image it finds. Some Window or Desktop Managers do not set a background to the "real" root background, and instead place it on a layer above the root window. To fix this, you can use an application such as qiv (http://www.klografx.net/qiv/), "Esetroot" which is included with Eterm (http://www.eterm.org), "fbsetbg" which is included with fluxbox (http://www.fluxbox.org), or (my favourite) "feh" (http://linuxbrit.co.uk/feh/).
To set the background using "feh" from your ~/.xinitrc, try the following:
I had this exact issue and the fix worked well, eepDater is back in business.
I have no idea how that folder made it into my system and I have added a ton of junk so this probably won't help much. I added quite a bit of stuff not in the bodhi app center. The only thing kevison mentioned as a possible that I have as well is conky. Plus a few themes and fonts.
It might be a good idea to try the legacy version which is for older machines and as far as I can tell that is on the lower side on ram. I was running 32 bit on an older machine as well and I ended up ugrading the ram to 2 GB for pretty cheap and now it runs very well. Before I upgraded the ram I was at 512 MB and with lots of tabs open in a browser it could be a bit sluggish.
