Using Lubuntu 12.10

I followed the instructions (the wiki points to .config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart but the actual file you need to manipulate is .config/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart) and although conky launches properly, my panel does not launch. If I remove the autostart file, the panel launches fine.

When I have the autostart in place, and the panel does NOT launch on login, if I subsequently execute
lxpanel from the command line, the panel appears but it is themed in a dramatically different way, and contains some different applets than what my regular panel has..

Any thoughts?

p.s. I submitted an edit to the page to update from LXDE -> Lubuntu for location of the autostart file.. Hopefully this is accurate as when I put it in the LXDE folder, it appeared to be completely ignored upon login.

I am assuming there is a typo in the code snippet for autostarting a conky script. In this code sample:

mkdir -p ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/
touch ~/.config/lxsessions/Lubuntu/autostart
leafpad autostart

The first line refers to a folder called lxsession
The second line refers to a folder called lxsessions

It's a wiki - you can edit it yourself :)
