conky on top of opera upon boot
« on: July 31, 2009, 09:54:50 AM »
I wanted my old laptop to boot into opera but have conky sit on top so I could monitor battery life, cpu usage etc.  So I start opera automatically on boot by adding it to my ~/.xsession just before the last line and edited my ~/.jwmrc by adding these lines to the bottom of the file just before the close /JWM:

<Group>
<Class>Opera</Class>
   <Option>layer:Bottom</Option>
</Group>

At first I tried making conky the top layer but every time I did that jwm freaked out and basically crashed.  so making opera the bottom most layer works almost as well.

two other conky things I did was to use ~/.jwmrc to tell it to hide the conky titlebar:

<Group>
  <Class>Conky</Class>
     <Option>notitle</Option>
</Group>

and in ~/.conkyrc, tell to use a transparent background

own_window_transparent yes

I welcome any suggestions for improvements  :)
