I've got Conky installed on 18.04 and I've been messing around and customizing my config file. I've got it set up and it runs fine. I've got it set up to bind to the right side of my screen which is where I want it.
The issue I have is when I configure Conky to start on boot. I'm using the standard startup applications to autostart. I made a bash script that sleeps for 20 seconds and then starts conky, and I pointed the startup applications to that script.
Conky does autostart after boot, but when it starts it takes up the whole screen and also some of the information that I've configured Conky to display ends up looking like C code.
When I run a killall and restart, it then comes up and works fine.
So the issue is something with the auto start up and I'm not 100% sure what. Otherwise Conky runs fine.
I've made a new config file, deleted the autostart and created a new one, but nothing is working so far. Any ideas?
