Fix conky hiding

I have installed and got some conky script but after system starting its hiding automatically and the only way I can see it while shutting down.

So I have googled and got some solution which can fix my problem.

Open your conkyrc file which is a hidden file  in home directory with

$ vim  .conkyrc


$ vim ~/.conkyrc

Find the area of below lines and make the configuration as I have mentioned.

own_window yes
own_window_class Conky
own_window_type normal
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager 
own_window_transparent yes

Then save and exit from your conkyrc file.

Then in we have to reload the conky with updated configuration , so all you have to do is kill the conky and then start it again.

so In your terminal as root user do as

# killall conky & conky


$ su -c " killall conky & conky"

I hope that will help you.
