    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    Since moving up from Ubuntu 9.04 to 10.04 I have the problem that on boot conky places itself in front of everything else. I created a startup script of
    #!/bin/bash
    sleep 20 && conky;

    But all that seems to do is delay the whole startup process by 20 seconds.

    If I stop conky and start it again then its fine. I'm probably doing something stupid but would appreciate some pointers.

    Many Thanks

    Conky is probably still starting to soon, try increasing the delay. Btw it should only delay conky from starting not the whole desktop.

    Your right. I had the delay to 5 seconds on my previous installation. When I went as high as 20 seconds on this install I thought I had gone far enough. I have now changes it to 30 seconds to make it work reliably. Just a shame it has to wait for so long.

    Hello
    Did you try the new command line option (conky 1.8.0) --pause :
    Code:
    conky -p 20
    should be better than sleep 20 && conky

    I'm quite happy with the way they look, but the main desktop file is really messy and needs some cleaning up... I would especially need some way of positioning text vertically (I've just got a load of blank lines right now), king of like goto. I flitted through the documentation but couldn't find it. Anybody know what it would be ?

    use voffsets more effectively would be my suggestion. shouldn't be too difficultguide to voffsets

    Thanks for the link, I replaced all the blank space with voffsets and it looks pretty much the same. Just a lot cleaner

    Question Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I know its a n00b question but is there a way i can set conky to show on all desktops?
    Because when i double click on the desktop (stupid habit i have XD) it disappears from desk 1, or should i just stop double clicking on my desktop?

    In your .conkyrc there's a line like
    Code:
    own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
    sticky is what sticks it on all desktops
