conky disappears from desktop

Postby saur0 » Fri Aug 17, 2012 7:14 am

I've managed to install conky lua but when I log in conky appears for a split second and then disappears from the desktop, the process is still running. I have tried writing a script to restart conky and added it to the start up but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?

this is what I get when I run conky from command line

Code: Select all

WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-dJ69uJ/pkcs11: No such file or directory
Conky: desktop window (10000a2) is subwindow of root window (b9)
Conky: window type - override
Conky: drawing to created window (0x1c00001)
Conky: drawing to double buffer


strangely, when I close the term window that is running conky, conky closes but then restarts and works as it should
