    Default Conky at startup.

    Ok guys I configured conky and I tried to make is run when I startup my PC only there is a small problem:

    I make a script:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sleep 10 && conky;
    save it as ./conky_startup.sh in /etc/init.d then add it to startup with update-rc.d but when I enter the splash screen it saies something like "Conky can't start display".

    I think that I spend more than 10 seconds during login (in the splash-screen) and Conky can't start. Is there any way to make it start only after I run startx ?

    You cant start conky until X is started so you would have to add conky& to your .bashrc file

    also make sure to use the & to background the proccess

    linux 101 Just follow purehate advice or find a folder named Autostart (use your search fu) and create there a soft link to your script.
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
