Try this.Create an empty file in your home folder, let's call it .conky-startup.sh, make it executable and put this in it:
sleep 30 && conky ;
Save the file and go to All Applications > Preferences > Startup Applications, click "Add" and add the path to the .conky-startup.sh file, for instance /home/yourname/.conky-startup.sh
or you can browse to it.
This starts conky after the desktop, so that conky appears on top.
After you add .conky-startup.sh to start up, uncheck the box next to conky
so you don't have a conflict.
This is how mine is setup.I also have a customized conky config stored in
a file named .conkyrc in my home directory.
Is your conky customized or is it vanilla?
Did you install it through Package Manager or a .deb file
What version are you running?
Run this in terminal to find out
