    Hey oz,
    I believe it was just a Fluxbox theme background of the tiled sort. My Conky is transparent, so it reflects whatever is behind it.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I was mistaken in Post 60

    I got it running in Icewm now.



    Edit: forgot to mention How I did it. Lazy way out

    antiX-forum - View topic - Conky configuration

    The post on what I did is near the bottom.

    now going for tiny conky

    LOL... you guys seem to be going fancier with conky, and I keep going simpler...

    In an effort to cut conky down so that it has a smaller footprint on the desktop, I've removed all the graphs and usage bars so that it occupies only 80x290 pixels in the upper-right corner of the screen. It's out of the way and still reveals all I need to know about what's going on inside the case itself:



    Note that I've also removed "RPM" from the fan outputs, and am thinking about removing the "C" from the temp indicators since I already know what the numbers mean. If it weren't for the network in/out speeds expanding in character size now and then, I could cut off another 20 pixels or so in width making it even smaller. The horizontal conky setups are good for not taking up too much screen space, but then you have to move your eyes too much going from one side of the screen to the other in order to get a look at all the numbers.

    The empty space at the bottom of the image is where the other drives show up when they are mounted.

    Sometimes, I start thinking that dabbling with conky configurations might be taking up too much of my time.

    Very nice roky, I think your wallpaper is in love with me.

    I'm going to close this thread and start a new one....it's had a nice long run.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
