I'm using conky in fluxbox on Arch, and don't like the position of conky on startup. It's pops up in the middle of the screen when I startup.

Is there a way to set the position of conky on the screen at startup? I want it to stick to the top of the screen automatically.

    Conky has excellent documentation: what settings have you tried? – jasonwryan Sep 2 '12 at 7:11
  • You must share your conky config, otherwise we wouldn't know where's going wrong, at least the part before TEXT – daisy Sep 2 '12 at 11:52

Maybe try a variation of this in your .conkyrc:

alignment top_left
gap_x 60
gap_y 60
