[Solved] How is the conky top panel started?
« on: January 19, 2013, 09:33:30 AM »
Hola!

Not a conky fan, so wanted to remove it.  Nothing wrong with it, in fact very nicely done, I just don't use conky normally.

Went into "Application Autostart", de-selected Conky, de-selected save session, cleared saved sessions, restarted, and there's Conky stubbornly staring back at me.  Where is it getting started?

Obviously I can apt-get remove it, but that seems so brutal.  Just looking for a more "surgical" approach.

Thanks for the help!

Interesting I'm a conky addict and use OpenBox normally.  So I logged into an Xfce sessions and did what you did and there it is again.

Try renaming /usr/local/bin/conkystart.sh see if that does the trick.
That's what I'm going to do right now.

No, that didn't work, neither did renaming ~/.config/autostart/Conky.desktop

Sorry, I'm an early bird here, so you'll have to wait for a more experienced Xfce4 user.

Yeah I tried similar to what you did.  I vi'd the script and stuck an "exit 0" at the top.  But still conky defiantly stares back at me.

I almost think it is an authorization issue.  Because I also de-selected the script which kills the xcfe4-panel, then configured my own panel.  But I still see evidence of the script running every time I restart the system.  Almost like it is not really saving changes made through the gui (damn gui's!).

#$%^#$%^   Boy do I feel stoopid!  I looked everywhere but the logout dialogue.  Worst part is I knew better.

I shall mark it resolved.  Not even getting the xfce4-panel is in kiosk mode message anymore.

Thanks VastOne!  Very nice distro by the way.  If I can work through my intermittent dhcp issues, I will probably use it as my main for a while.  Thanks again.
