[Solved] DWM conky on desktop

Is it possible to have conky on the DWM desktop?
I have it piped to the DWM status bar but am unable to get a conky config that shows on the desktop... sad

Maybe there's a

out_to_x = no

in the conkyrc? If yes, comment it or change the value to yes. Else, do as the porkpiehat says  cool

Re: [Solved] DWM conky on desktop

try with

own_window no

above TEXT in a typical conky configuration.

that should put text only on the desktop; you'll need to mix and match wallpaper and text colour to suit your needs.

you may be able to use

own_window yes

but you would need to define the rules so that the conky window floats (use own_window_name and own_window_class in the conkyrc) and stays below the other window. Otherwise it will will tiled with the rest.

Thanks to arpinux for reminding me I needed conky-std installed.
