gkrellm cant shut down


I installed gkrellm and created a .xinitrc in my /home/user folder.

in the .xinitrc

exec stakde &
exec gkrellm

Everything work fine gkrellm start up when i login to kde. But the problem is when i logout from kde gkrellm wont shut down on its on. I got to right click on it and choose quit if not i cant logout and go into command promt. Is there any files i need to edit and put in some command?

You may try putting the & symbol at the end of the "exec gkrellm" line. It will cause gkrellm to run in the background and may let you close out.

That, and I would put gkrellm above the wm. I think the correct syntax is all programs to open first, then your wm, but I may be backwards, so I appologize if you find that I in fact I am backwards.

Thanks alot Bitta and MasterC it work!
By the way few more questions.
What is the latest version for gkrellm? I went to http://web.wt.net/~billw/gkrellm/gkrellm.html but it stated there that gkrellm 2.0.o is only for Openbsd and Netbsd.

Currently i am running on gkrellm-1.2.13 and trying to find themes and xmms plugin for it.

I think i will not bother you guys for now its better for me to do the searching myself before asking you guys. But please ans my 1st or 2 questions thanks alot geeks

I believe 2.0 is the latest :
Quote:
GKrellM 2.0.0
Has client/server capability.

Changelog

gkrellm-2.0.0.tar.bz2

For OpenBSD and NetBSD only, use this tarball and send me a compile log if it fails. Sorry to start the party without you, but I'm only just now getting feedback for GKrellM 2.0 on OpenBSD and NetBSD.
If on OpenBSD you get a link error, try: gmake openbsd LINK_FLAGS=
Now this tarvball is pointing to gkrellm-2.0.0-bsd.tar.bz2 where is the first one as is - gkrellm-2.0.0.tar.bz2

Nah, install over the top. No need to upgrade, I am sure you can just toss it in over the top. The directories you have all your "extra" stuff in isn't even made by the base package anyway. You created them (I think anyway, been a while) when you got more packages and such.

Cool
