Let me try to help you out in my own way:

You can use the
window rule move ::: to specify where it would be on the screen:
windowrule = move <offset height from screen> <offset width from screen>,title:^(conky)$
Float rule ::: to make it float
windowrule = float,^(conky)$
fake fullscreen:::: just incase
windowrulev2 = fakefullscreen,title:^(conky)$

This is just an example config that I would use:
check with hyprctl clients for the right class names and title names.

For refrence: This is how I manage xpad on my hyprland config to have sticky notes on my workspaces ps:May have blurred out a thing or two

thanks, i will give it a try. but if i understand good it will still run the conky in windows?

By windows meaning borders & stuff… Yes.
However, with hyprland you can control each applications outlook on the config, even making it have no borders.
This will make it look as normal as it looks on KDE/GNOME e.t.c.
Refer to Hyprland Wiki

Thanks.

I will try find some time for this. I was thinking there is an easier solution. :grin:

windowrule = float,^(conky)$                                                                                                                                                    
windowrulev2 = fakefullscreen,title:^(conky)$                                                                                                                                   
windowrule = noborder,^(conky)$                                                                                                                                                 
windowrule = opacity, 0.9 0.9,^(conky)$ 
#windowrule = nofocus,^(conky)$                                                                                                                                        
#windowrule = move x y,^(conky)$                                                                                                                                                
#windowrule = size l w,^(conky)$  

Use this then,… apply commented section if need be…

Anyway, hope it works out for you
