Solution:1

Find this section:

## no compositor  own_window_type conky  own_window_argb_visual yes    ## xcompmgr  #own_window_type conky  #own_window_argb_visual yes    ## cairo-compmgr  own_window_type conky  own_window_argb_visual no  

Copy this code over top of the section:

## no compositor  #own_window_type conky  #own_window_argb_visual yes    ## xcompmgr  own_window_type conky  own_window_argb_visual yes    ## cairo-compmgr  #own_window_type conky  #own_window_argb_visual no
