    I can't get rid of this annoying little program.

    I installed Conky the other day, and I want to get rid of it. But no matter what I do, it just won't go. I removed it using synaptics, I tried using <sudo apt-get remove conky> and <sudo apt-get autoremove conky< and it still runs at startup. It is really irritating because thanks to this program, my wallpaper won't show and all I get is a really ugly grey background. pls halp? DDDD:

    Thanks. c:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove conky*
    conky is only a metapackage that references another package

    I tried both of those commands, but this stupid program is still on my computer. It's annoying the heck out of me because it's stupid grey background is there and it is just bugging me.

    It's possible that you have some other problem. Put up a screenshot of what annoys you.
    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.

    It's just that damn background. My actual wallpaper won't show.

    Maybe you should turn off those privacy settings that you have used for your screenshot upload... can't view your screenshot.

    And what happens when you try to manually set the wallpaper, does it change or still remains they gray you say.

    I have no privacy settings on it?
    Anyway, what happens is, when I click on "Activities" in the Gnome Panel, I can see my wallpaper in the background, but when I go to the actual desktop itself, it goes grey.
    And when i change the wallpaper it makes no difference.

    Also, do you see some conky in the process list. Try the below from a terminal and if you see something conky in it, kill the process.

    ps -eaf | grep -i conky

    pkill <the_name_of_process_you_see_from_above_output>
