    Conky won't load

    I installed conky, but never used it before. There may be a step I am missing as the Infinity desktop is not loading. I am working in Ubuntu 12.10.

    I have the .conkyrc file and the .conky folder in home/username. I have sh ~/.conky/ in Startup Applications. The contents of .conkyrc are below. I thought it was to start .lua which is also in home/username, but apparently it is not. What should I try?

    Contents of .conkyrc

    Firstly it would be appreciated if you could use the code tags for similar posts in future as it assists in readability.
    That said I have quoted the path that conky is expecting your lua scripts to be in. You might check that this is where they are located, and if not amend the path accordingly. Check the filenames are also correct.

    You can also start conky from a terminal with;
    conky -c <path/to/your/conkyrc>
    and check for any startup errors listed.
