I have some problems autostarting conky. I added the conky script to the autostarter (via session and startup) and it resides in /home/user/.config/autostart/conky Code: [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Version=0.9.4 Type=Application Name=conky Comment= Exec=/usr/loca/bin/conky StartupNotify=false Terminal=false Hidden=false The Problem is, that it starts in the background, but is not being displayed on the desktop (after starting the computer physically) If I kill x and start it again it works, but not after a real boot. My other idea was to put it into the /home/user/.xinitrc. Code: conky & startxfce4 If i do startx, i can see conky starting, but then the desktop wallpaper puts itself "over" conky and conky is no longer visible. How do you automatically start conky on your machine?
