Conky screenshot glitch

Screenshot from 2023-11-19 21-57-30

This is a screenshot of my Conky. My display shows the bar in white according to the configuration, but it is black in the screenshot. It is not a serious glitch, but I'm curious why.

conky.config = {
    alignment = 'top_right',
    background = false,
    default_color = 'white',
    default_outline_color = 'white',
    default_shade_color = 'black',
    double_buffer = true,
    draw_outline = false,
    draw_shades = true,
    font = 'JetBrains Mono:size=12',
    gap_x = 64,
    gap_y = 16,
    own_window = true,
    own_window_type = 'desktop',
    own_window_argb_visual = true,
    own_window_argb_value = 0,
    use_xft = true,
    default_bar_height = 8,
    short_units = true,

conky.text = [[
$alignc${font JetBrains Mono:size=24}${time %R}$font
$alignc${time %F}${font Noto Sans CJK JP:size=12}${time %A}$font
CPU: ${alignr}${freq}MHz
RAM: ${alignr}$mem/$memmax
Swap: ${alignr}$swap/$swapmax
File: ${alignr}$fs_used/$fs_size
Temp: ${alignr}${acpitemp}°C

I loaded the posted .conkyrc, but am unable to reproduce the glitch. What screen shot tool are you using ?

I use gnome-screenshot. I just took the screenshot again and it did not reproduce. Maybe it conflicts with wallpaper switching with time.

I used the same application. Are you using the default wallpaper that changes with the time of day ?

Yes, it is Zorin 16's default.

I would see if it makes any difference when the wallpaper cycles to the different colors, day, afternoon,and so forth.

It still seems to go wrong at the time when the wallpaper is switching.
