Thread: Conky- A Few Doubts

  1. #1

    Default Conky- A Few Doubts

    Hi,
    I have the following conky setup running on my system, but need to add it as a startup item. How can I do that? All it has is a config file

    Conky Launchpad by ~freeazy on deviantART

    Also, how to get this conky to display the KDE and OS version?

    For autostart, you can add it to Personal Settings>System Administration>Autostart. I used to do that but now find that once started manually, it will always autostart provided the last session was closed properly.
    Don't know about KDE and openSUSE versions, but you can display the kernel version (as you probably already know).

    @ gminnerup,
    but its a config file, not a script to add to Autostart. i tried adding it anyway, but nothing happened. had to manually start it. thanks for the reply

    You don't add the config file, just "conky". The config file is read automatically when conky starts.

    you were right. There was no need to add the config file to 'auto start'. I renamed the config file in the home directory to ".conkyrc" and added "usr/bin/conky" to 'autostart'. Now its working fine. Thanks a lot….
