    Thanks for a great howto.

    It works great my end, apart from one little detail.

    When I reboot it doesn't re-appear on my desktop. The only way to get it back is to log out and log back in.

    Anyone ever experienced this problem?

    How do you have it set to start? If It's added to your session I think it will cause a problem as it loads before the desktop. Perhaps logging in and out is a work around because by the time you log in again the desktop is already loaded. Just a guess though. Somewhere in here is a short bash script that will start conky 60 seconds after your session starts and thus avoid that problem. It's probably a little less elegant but I just start it manually. I have a custom launcher on the top panel for conky so I just click it if I want conky to load. I use beryl a lot so I want to be sure I start beryl first as well.

    If you are using the delayed start then I'm afraid I don't know.

    I use beryl and the script with a 2s sleep works fine with me

    I didn't try such a short sleep but I decided I didn't really want it or beryl to auto load - especially beryl. Sometime I don't really need or want it so I'd rather decided at login what to use. Afterall, with a custom launcher it's only a single click to load.

    Yeah, it's added to my sessions. Thanks, I'll try that script

    EDIT: That script worked a treat. Everything's fine now.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    sleep 10 && conky;
    It's not just a conky-related problem though, because this was happening when I was using adesklets as well. Oh well, sorted now
