#375 closed System Defect (fixed)

Conky window disappears

Reported by: grep2grok Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 8.2
Component: System Configuration Version: 8.1
Keywords: conky configuration desktop Cc: trac-bugs@…


Install conky pbi. Open a terminal, type conky &. Make sure conky appeared, should be in the upper right. Click on the desktop.

What should happen: nothing. Conky should stay right where it is, happily reporting away.
Whad does happen: conky disappears behind the desktop. ps will show it's still running.

Fix: in /Programs/conky/etc/conky/conky.conf, change

own-window-type desktop


own-window-type normal

As this is a pretty minor bug, I took the opportunity to make my first attempt at a patch file. Please let me know if it works or not. I used diff -crB new.file old.file > file.patch

BTW, just installed version 8.2. Trac does not reflect current PC-BSD version (8.2). My bug report here should be Version = 8.2, Milestone should be something greater than 8.2
