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 !!!!
I'm pretty new to tiling WM, getting used to i3 and enjoying it. How can one have conky work under i3 without i3 trying to tile it?(I know the common use for conky under i3 is to pipe it to i3bar, but I dont see a need to do this when I can try to run a nice conky on its own) For clarification, just having conky sit on the root window and not be touched by i3.
