Conky transparency

Question

Greetings,

 

I have tried to make conky run on a transparent background but failed. Installed ecomorph and used the wiki and other windows setting, but the background is still solid black.

 

Not a major issue but any thoughts?

See HERE.

Compton is perfectly capable to enable transparency, works for shelves too.

start-up command would be compton -b to have it working as a daemon.

I'm using the config file mentioned in the link and have no issues with it.

 

Enjoy,

Charles.

If you do not have a 3D graphics card compositing will slow your system down yes.

It's working fine. I can launch it from the terminal but when I added it to the personal application launcher, it does not run on startup but it runs from the menu entry that was created???? Any thoughts? Thanks Michel

Use this file:

.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands
When you type in the command (no need for sudo)
compton -b
and save it, on next login compton will autostart and you can remove the entry from startup applications
 
Enjoy,
Charles
