conky display isssue on Gnome desktop when initiated at startup
 
i have configured my system Debian Lenny (Gnome) such that conky, compiz, avant-window-navigator start at the startup....

even though rest of the two are working fine, conky is not getting displayed, will conky is running in the background!! if i run conky during the working session the it works fine, but at startup it donot!!! :(

so my problem is how to make the conky work while starting it during starup...

It could be a situation where compiz hasn't completely finished loading while conky is attempting to draw to a non-existent screen (or is drawing to an unseen root window which compiz is also drawing to).

Make a script to delay conky's start by 5 or 10 seconds, and run that instead of running conky directly:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
# delay start of conky
sleep 10s
conky

cheers,
