Hi, all. Brand new here. Been wanting to go to Linux off and on for years now, and Mint 9 is finally a release that I can sink my teeth into and learn from. I learned a little Unix and C way back a couple of decades ago, so learning command line stuff isn't beyond me, but I do have to re-learn pretty much from scratch. I've run into a couple of things I'd like to ask you folks about, though.
Conky issues on startup.
I'm using two instances of conky with different information in each, one on each of two monitors. I have added to items to my "startup applications" to begin these when I log in:
It worked fine for about a week, then suddenly it wasn't--now it runs only my default conky configuration (which, to keep myself from getting confused, I'd changed to simply display "this is not your current conky setup").
Each time, I open the terminal, give
and give the commands as I've written them above, one at a time, and then it runs fine.
Does anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong, and why it worked fine for a while and now doesn't?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
