I've setup conky on my laptop installation of linux mint 14 (cinnamon), conky works except for the font transparency. I'm using:
in .conkyrc. But whichever value I use, the transparency doesn't change. I've also tried changing the own_window_type. Doesn't make any difference unfortunately. Other people with similar setups report that it works for them. Can anyone guide to where the problem is?
I guess I shouldn't post my complete conky configuration, it's maybe a little too much. But the most important parts are:
xftfont sans:size=10 use_xft yes xftalpha 0.5 update_interval 1.0 own_window yes own_window_transparent yes own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager own_window_type desktop double_buffer yes no_buffers yes
