If you don't mind that black window in conky like you have in the i3 screenshot, one thing you could try is piping a conky-cli configuration to a dzen2 window. I've never tried anything like that; gut feeling is that the dzen2 window will want to stay on top.

Another option would be to use dzen2 with clickable areas instead of the spectrwm bar. Then you could at least see that information on demand.

The meaning of "override" is to override window manager hinting.
So either you got the syntax wrong, or spectrwm also overrides window manager hinting...
for conky 1.1x.x it has to be like this:

own_window_type = "override",

for 1.9.x:

own_window_type override

I think you additionally need to set

own_window_hints = 'undecorated,below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,sticky',

but if spectrwm does not respect those hints, maybe it has its own mechanism to tell conky to stay below?

^ Is that a brontosaurusrex wallpaper or did you edit one of his original Blender walls? It looks great.

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

After a couple of months of using it, I finally realized Audacity has a dark theme. I'm setting levels on the first part of Episode 7 of my radio show, as you can see from the tooltip...

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

Here a nice try with the CM2 of this mx-distribution.

I still had an old 18'er installation in Qemu. So, I installed the repos of the mx19, signed it and pulled the packages conky-manager2 and mx-conky-data-theme for this try.
As conky I used ceeslan's "SideDiag" and my own.

The balancing act is, like in CM1, enormous, which the guys there do to get the many "defected" WIN users their "Klicki-Bunti-World".   smile
