Re: custom conky

Open the terminal or ssh in.

Gain root

then

vim /etc/conky/conky.conf

Then search for:

own_window_transparent yes

press insert and change the yes to a no.

Then add the line

own_window_colour colour


Where colour is an rgb colour. So far I've tried yellow, blue, cyan and red but I'm sure there are more.

press esc then : the wq! to save and quit and then restart conky.

 

Worked for me.
