Well, if your user name is sector11 that is. :D
Interesting that conky -p 15 command
... we are all so caught up with sleep 15 && conky, I'm guilty as well, that we forget conky has that built in.
Nice reminder AndyOpie150 - Thank You!
Hey! Nice to see you again.
The afore mentioned file was suposedly a conky start up script. Didn't write down the details of how to incorporate it, which is why I asked if it would work.
Once my brain was kickstarted by Petro Dog the conky -p 15 in my notes was the next thing I tried.
Strange though, I still haven't figured out why I have to open up the desktop settings to get my conky to quit showing the original background when i'm in a different background. Kinda annoying.
Made sure the first thing I did to set up conky was to open a Terminal and type in:
Something I need to check?Code:
sudo apt-get install conky-all
Anyways, you might need to post your Conky script (I didn't see it posted in my quick glance of the past several thread pages) . I expect your issue is with your window type settings. You might play around with the settings, mine are as follows...
Those settings work for me on my xfce machine without issue.Code:

This is the first time I heard of "conky -p 15", and here I thought I knew the native Conky application pretty well, guess I have more to learn yet. ;)
Edit: Now that I think about it, since this is a laptop, there's a good many statuses that might be done in Conky. Battery and wlan come to mind... ^_^?
