When i do a left-button click on the desktop conky disappear

Asked by Stefano Tarquini

When i do a left-button click on the desktop conky disappear but it didn't stop the process. If i do a right-button click on the desktop before and then i do a left-button click conky didn't disappear. When i come back again to desktop if i do a left-button click conky always disappear (the process didn't terminate).

This is actually a configuration issue.

Due to your conkyrc file having "desktop" set as own_window_type while having an actual desktop set-up already, conky will go behind the desktop/wallpaper.

Switch from "desktop" to "window" to fix the problem and add own_window_hints to make sure it goes in background.

For example:
own_window_type window
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager

Thank you for your answer Jerome. It seems to resolve my issue. Now, after i have changed my conkyrc file i may do a left-click and window of conky doesn't disappear (http://tinyurl.com/c57nq5p).
