    Conky don't work 100%

    Ubuntu 12.04, on Dell Inspiron N5110 (Sandy Bridge technology).
    For video card, I installed bumblebee.

    My Conky is taken from Pinguy and multiplied in 4 sections: .conkyrc1, .conkyrc2, .conkyrc3 and .conkyrc4.
    After loading the operating system, is so (.conkyrc2 missing):



    After log out and log in, is complete (appears .conkyrc2):



    My Conky is here (7 hidden files).

    Loaded from Terminal:



    Can find a solution for this problem? Thank you!

    Re: Conky don't work 100%

    I assume you are starting conky four separate times in the startup applications configuration with four commands
    Code:
    conky -c conkyrc1
    followed by conkyrc2 etc etc.

    I wonder if it would help to add the -p option to the commands, ie pause for a few seconds, each one slightly different pause time, eg;-
    conky -p 5 -c conkyrc1
    conky -p 10 -c conkyrc2
    conky -p 15 -c conkyrc3
    etc.

    Re: Conky don't work 100%

    If ajgreeny's solution doesn't work,
    Run...
    Code:
    killall conky
    Then
    Code:
    conky -c ~/.conkyrc2
    and paste the terminal output.

    What version of conky are you using.
    Code:
    conky --version

    Thanks for the answers!

    @ajgreeny

    Conky start with script conky_start.sh
    I replaced the contents of the script:
    Code:
    sleep 30
    conky -c ~/.conkyrc1 &
    conky -c ~/.conkyrc2 &
    conky -c ~/.conkyrc3 &
    conky -c ~/.conkyrc4
    with:

    Code:
    sleep 30
    conky -p 5 -c ~/.conkyrc1 &
    conky -p 10 -c ~/.conkyrc2 &
    conky -p 15 -c ~/.conkyrc3 &
    conky -p 20 -c ~/.conkyrc4
    No change in operation: .conkyrc2 does not charge.

    Does the conkyrc2 display when loaded by itself?

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vincent-c/conky
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install conky-all
    P.S. No need for sudo when running killall conky. The process is owned by you.

    You can also try editing the lines in conkyrc2...
    Code:
    own_window_type override
    #own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    to
    Code:
    own_window_type normal
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    making sure to remove the "#"
