Well this is how I get all my conkys to start at boot.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/cpu &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/time &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/intel1 &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/intel2 &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/antix &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/pid &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/weather &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/hdd &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/music &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/internet &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/footballscores &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/cal &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/ram &
sleep 50 &&
conky -d -c /home/voorhees/conky/updates &


I have to set a sleep command otherwise it loads and clashs with other stuff loading. This way you get a little delay before they start upon boot, but they all start correct at the same time. You don't have to name the files rc or anything.

@ smiliken... yeah, I was trying to use the weather icons without a .template file, but I guess that is the route to go. I prefer just the .conkyrc. Here is my current conky setup to my liking.

This is my start up script that I found on the net. I tried to place it in /.kde/Autostart but nothing happens. Only on .conkyrc file seems to start on boot.

Quote:
#!/bin/sh
#start Conky with a 20 second delay
sleep 20
conky -c ~/Scott/.conkyrc &
conky -c ~/Scott/.conkyrc1
sleep 1
exit

Did you make it executable? Right click on file, choose properties and tick executable.

The only thing I see different from mine is you only have -c I have -d -c maybe thats it?

Code:
conky -d -c


Other then that I have no idea. It's what works for me on kde4 and antiX with Gnome

I've started to have problems with "X". Everytime I start synaptic and then click on the search button, the desktop goes black. Now I'm not sure it has to do with conky or something else. I moved all of my .conkyrc files out of my home directory, but now some other conky desktop starts up, not any of mine. It could a problem with the combination of conky and the desktop effects, not sure. Will play and see what happens.

OK, the way I read the instructions for the script was to leave the last & out of the script. I will place it in there and see what happens.

Thanks
