Funny, I just installed conky and it works fine (using GNOME/Metacity on
Debian Lenny). I haven't rebooted or logged out of GNOME since I did
it, so maybe the problems you describe will surface when I try that.
The default .conkyrc was setup like so (and I'm pretty sure I didn't
change any of these, except to comment out the "own_window_colour"
# Create own window instead of using desktop (required in nautilus)
# If own_window is yes, you may use type normal, desktop or override
# Use pseudo transparency with own_window?
# If own_window_transparent is set to no, you can set the background
# If own_window is yes, these window manager hints may be used
# Use double buffering (reduces flicker, may not work for everyone)
The window appears transparent, with no title bar or window decorations.
