    Default How to stop conky from autostarting?

    Hi,
    i recently installed conky from one of the official repos i think (or it was packman iam not sure at the moment) the program itself works well but i noticed that after i first started conky it gets automatically started when i boot. Thats a bit strange because there are a lot of hints/tutorials on the web explaining how to autostart conky. So is this the wanted behavior by the openSUSE repo people? Where is the autostart configured for conky, i might want to stop it from autostarting later.

    Hi
    You mean when you get to your desktop? If so, then check in
    ~/.config/autostart/ for a conky.desktop file.

    Yes when starting kde.
    I checked but there is no autostart directory in ~/.config/

    It is not in .config

    it is

    ~/.kde4/Autostart/

    That is where KDE things autostart LOL

    There's ~/.config/autostart/ as well, that's the freedesktop standard and respected by KDE too.

    Non-KDE applications (like conky) would rather use that I suppose...

    Anyway, from having a quick look at the conky package, I don't see it using any autostart mechanism.

    Maybe it gets restarted by KDE's session management?
    KDE restarts all programs at login that were still running when you logged out.

    So just quit/kill it before you log out and it should not be started again.
