I'm trying to get the background of my Conky window transparent or semi-transparent, but nothing is working. Right now it's just solid black

I've tried:
Own_window_transparent = true
Own_window_argb_visual = true
Different values for own_window_argb_value, own_window_class, and own_window_type

I'm running Gentoo with Fluxbox, Openrc, Xorg

I don’t know offhand, but I recall having to install a separate compositor, in order to get transparency support in a couple of WMs, back in the day.

One of the compositors I tried was xcompmgr. I think compton was another one.

A quick bit of DuckDuckGo-fu yielded this:

Which may help. It’s from 2009 though, so it might be a bit dated!
