    Looking good - small but good.

    Something I learned recently from VastOne about Xfce is that "Session and Startup" autostart requires an "absolute path"

    Doesn't work:
    ~/conky/script.sh
    $HOME/conky/script.sh
    $USER/conky/script.sh

    Works:
    /home/sector11/conky/script.sh

    Well, if your user name is sector11 that is.

    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:
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install conky-all
    Something I need to check?

    Yay! Someone gave me an old 16" in monitor at work today to replace my ancient 13" monitor, so now I can read an entire post without having to scroll

    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...

    Code:
      
      update_interval 3.0
      total_run_times 0
      cpu_avg_samples 4
      no_buffers yes
      double_buffer yes
      override_utf8_locale yes
    
    #overall appearance of conky window
      own_window yes
      own_window_type normal
      own_window_transparent yes
      own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
      draw_borders no
    Those settings work for me on my xfce machine without issue.

    Current versions of Xubuntu should handle creating the file path automatically. Adding applications to auto start-up just requires clicking a button, navigating to, and selecting the correct executable; easy as pie (or cake depending on your preference). And yes, it does create the path starting with /home/....

    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.

    I just found my old script and got it running, but I have some tinkering to do to it. For starters, my old machine was a Pentium4 desktop with two HDDs. I still can't seem to get an external IP and I haven't even bothered with the calendar. At least it's there!


    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... ^_^?

    External IP (needs curl)...
    Code:
    ${execi 3600 curl ifconfig.me}
    Test in terminal...
    Code:
    curl ifconfig.me

    "External IP (needs curl)..."

    Thanks for that, stinkeye! I had an old wget line to fetch it from "whatsmyip", but this is so much better!
