Before I installed gentoo I was running crunchbang with debian testing repos. I was using this script on crunchbang and it was working as expected[/bug]
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec conky -d -c "$HOME/bin/conkyrc_cli" | dzen2 -fn
Hermit-light-9.5 -bg "#333333" -ta left -w 730 -x 71 -y 750 &
exit 0

and here's the conky setup in reference
Code:
# Conky configuration for Dzen2, to be piped into i3bar

##############################################
#  Settings
##############################################
background no
out_to_x no
out_to_console yes
update_interval 1.0

It is supposed to cling to the bottom of i3 at the same level of the workspaces next to them. For some reason instead of doing that it flies to the top middle of my screen.

I ran
Code:
echo "This is a message"|dzen2 -fn Hermit-light-9.5 -bg "#333333" -ta left -w 730 -x -71 -y 750 -p
and it displayed at the bottom precisely as I wanted but if I run the dzen2 script I first posted to display the conky info it places the dzen2 bar directly on top of the screen ?_?

Apparently taking off the -d part in the conky section makes it work.

Very peculiar, if I add the working line
Code:
conky -c "$HOME/bin/conkyrc_cli"|dzen2 -fn LiberationSans-Regular-12.3 -bg "#333333" -ta left -w 800 -x 71 -y 750
in a script it clings to the top of the screen. If I run it in a terminal it works right.[/bug]
