I've set conky to be started after logging in by creating the file conky.sh in /usr/local/bin, and adding the entry conky.sh to the Xfce startup applications list. conky.sh contains the following text:
Conky starts as expected, but I now have two conky-related processes permanently running: conky using 7MB of RAM and conky.sh using 1.4MB of RAM.
I want conky to run when I start the x server on debian. how would I do this. I dont use the normal conky command, I have a file in a .conky folder that runs multiple conky windows. how would I autostart it?
I have a new install of Ubuntu desktop on an old IBM T43 laptop, and I am trying to get conky up and running. I've copied one of the sample .conkyrc files from the conky sourceforge page and pasted it into ~/.conkyrc . However, I've rebooted conky several times (killall -SIGUSR1 conky) and it still uses the default configuration in: /etc/conky/conky.conf .
Leave it to Dura to post this ! True ... and funny, funny cuz true (imo anyway.) Agree conky addiction is a potentially serious problem. Esp for conky grand masters like Sector ... he neither knows, nor cares that conky has become addictive. One of the few things about gnu/nix was able to pry meself away from. ooooOOOoo if only x about my conky would but appear 1/47 inch to da right !!!!
Debian on external USB SSD drive. I installed Conky utility but it does not show CPU temperature and HDD temp. The lm-sensors, hddtemp are installed, I don't configured them, as they didn't asked about configuration while installation.
