i want to autostart Conky in Ubuntu 12.04 / XFCE. I tryed to start this script with "automatic starting applications" in sessions options:
sleep 6 conky
But it does not work.
Provided that you installed your conky correctly use the following:
Name a file .conky_startup and put the following lines in it:
Put the file in your home directory (the directory with your username).
Next go to Session and Startup and the tab Application Autostart , create a new entry with Add and fill in a name and a discription and the path to .conky_startup. Than reboot and conky should start. You might have to change the sleeptime a bit for the best result.
You don't need a script for an easy command like that.
Option 1: With GUI
You can add a new entry with the GUI
Option 2 : Manually (commandlines)
You can add a new file.desktop (autostart files) in $HOME/.config/autostart :
Paste this in the Mousepad window :
Option 3 : with only one commandline (TADAAAM!)
