This is recurring question yet I cannot make one program (
conky) to automatically start when GNOME 3 starts. In
~/.config/autostart I have the following file:
cat ~/.config/autostart/conky.desktop [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Name=conky Comment=A startup script for conky Exec=~/bin/conky_startup Terminal=true
~/bin/conky_startup is as follows:
cat ~/bin/conky_startup #!/usr/bin/env bash /usr/bin/conky --pause 10 -c ~/conky/white_conky &
When I execute
~/bin/conky_startup conky starts without any problem. However, at startup the script fails to execute conky. Why?
