Conky and MATE problem

137503-2I found this lovely Conky script that I wanted to use for my MATE desktop.

However, it wouldn’t start automatically after logging in, see:

(this can be set in System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications)

It would stay there for a second after logging in but then it would disappear. I found out that this setting in the conky config file

was probably fighting the window manager in some way, so it had to be changed to:

and that fixed the problem. The default value own_window_type normal worked as well, but the conky window would behave like a regular window then and it would respond to Ctrl + Alt + D for instance.

Hope this might help someone a bit someday.
