Hi!
My Conky is unable to set up double buffering. I've enabled the dbe extension in X and it loads successfully (according to the logfile), but Conky outputs:
Code:
Conky: desktop window (e8) is root window
Conky: window type - normal
Conky: drawing to created window (2600001)
Conky: failed to set up double buffer
Conky: drawing to single buffer


Any ideas?

I'm using xinerama to span my desktop through two monitors (=2960x1050 Pixels). Is it possible that there is no video memory left anymore to allow double buffering?

Here's my xorg.conf: http://phpfi.com/317771. Is line 44 enough to enable DBE extension? The log says:
Code:
(II) LoadModule: "dbe"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libdbe.so
(II) Module dbe: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 1.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
        Module class: X.Org Server Extension
        ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3
(II) Loading extension DOUBLE-BUFFER

No error...

Are you using ati-drivers (fglrx) ?

I have the same issue, using ati-drivers-9.11, and dual monitors

If I setup xorg to one monitor, it works !

Moved from Other Things Gentoo to Duplicate Threads. See conky double buffer fails, not that it helps much.
