Fluxbox Startup


Hi, I'm trying to add conky to the startup of fluxbox. I went to ~/.fluxbox/startup and added conky & before exec ... But it still doesn't work.

Hi,
Have you added the full path to the program i.e. /usr/bin/conky & ( or wherever your conky binary is located )in the startup up file ?

Code:
/usr/bin/conky &

exec /usr/bin/fluxbox

You could try delaying the conky load until after the desktop has loaded
Code:
sleep 2 &&  /usr/bin/conky &
