Auto-start conky after login

Postby M00kaw on Tue May 17, 2011 11:05 am

I've downloaded Linux Mint LXDE yesterday, and I've played around with it all day.

I've installed conky, and made a conky.conf in /etc/conky/conky.conf
The problem is, I don't know how to make the system auto-start it, when I log in.
I've searched the web, and there's lots of methods. I'm just very unsure which to chose ?

I've been playing around with Openbox before, and added conky yo my autostart.sh - I was hoping that LXDE worked the same way, but apparently it doesn't.

So, if anyone (who uses LXDE), knows how solve this, I would appreciate it very much!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Open a terminal and enter

Code: Select all
sudo leafpad /etc/xdg/lxsession/Mint/autostart


Add this to the end of the file and save the chances

Code: Select all
@conky


That should do it.
