Thread: Conky in KDE startup

    Default Conky in KDE startup

    Hello!

    I use openSUSE 12.3 - 64bit - KDE.

    I installed the app Conky.
    I created the file "conkyrc" and I also created the file "conky-start.sh" and put this in it:

    #! / bin / sh
    sleep 20 && conky


    I gave execute permission for it:

    $ chmod +x .conky-start.sh

    And I added the file to the KDE-system-startup and I reboot the system, but the Conky does not load automatically.

    How I do start Conky in KDE startup?

    Thank you!

    Code:

    You have to put code inside code tags in order to post it in the forum,
    and do not use any bold or any formatting inside the block at all. It is
    the button labelled '#'.

    As I see it, you used upper case for the commands, and inserted extra
    spaces in the middle, and that can not work. I don't know if you really
    typed the script that way in your computer, or the forum software has
    altered it.

    Please repost.

    I don't have conky installed, so I can't test this.

    You should be able to go to "configure desktop" in your KDE menu. Select "Startup and Shutdown". Then use the "Autostart" menu item and click on "Add Program". The subsequent steps are reasonably obvious. I am starting "apcupsd" that way.

    The Google translator changed the text, sorry!

    I use openSUSE 12.3 - 64bit - KDE.

    I installed the app Conky.
    I created the file "conkyrc" and I also created the file "conky-start.sh" and put this in it:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    sleep 20 && conky
    I gave execute permission for it:

    Code:
    chmod +x .conky-start.sh
    And I added the file to the KDE-system-startup and I reboot the system, but the Conky does not load automatically.

    How I do start Conky in openSUSE automatically?

    Thank you!

    It worked very well.

    Thank you very much!
