Conky Autostart Problems with Kubuntu 13.10


Hello. I'm using Kubuntu 13.10.

I'm trying to get a conky script to run. It loads 2 seperate conky creations.
Here is the script:

#! /bin/bash
sleep 30
conky -c ~/.conkyrc_sys &
conky -c ~/.conkyrc_clock

This script works fine if I just run it using ALT/F1.
But I can't seem to get autostart to work. On the program autostart page, I selected to add a script and then typed in /home/myname/.conky_start.sh

The funny thing is that I can exit the page, and then go to the autostart page again, and the autostart entry is no longer there. So it's like autostart is not saving my entry for some reason.

any help would be appreciated.

Try
Code:
#! /bin/bash
conky -p 30 -c /home/nbob/.conkyrc_sys &
conky -p 30 -c /home/nbob/.conkyrc_clock &
save it as /home/nbob/.conky_start.sh
Code:
chmod 700 /home/nbob/.conky_start.sh
add
/home/nbob/.conky_start.sh to auto-start items in KDE.
