Hi guys another question. I use conky when using 11.08.260 IGEL software and have it displaying the host name IP etc.. however when deploying profiles, occasionally the conky monitor does not display after a reboot. It just never shows up on either monitor. (we have a 2 monitor config) I have set the autostart delay to 60 seconds but that still didnt work. Here are a couple screenshots, any ideas?
I found ref to conky in release notes
The right screen when using multiscreen environment may not be shown
Workaround: The horizontal offset should be set to the width of the monitor
(e.g. if the monitor has a width of 1920, the offset should be set to 1920)“`
Some of the montiors that this happens to arent the same size. What is best practice? create a profile that defines a monitor width offset and apply a profile to any device that this happens to?
Conky does launch in this scenario, but the bug seems to be that it is floating off in a window somewhere in no man’s land, well well well beyond the view of your desktop.
Let me find the link where I’ve discussed this.
TLDR: setting this in your Conky config options, is probably the easiest approach to get you fixed up. 😉
Thank you sir I apperciate it. Last question, where can I find the xinerama_head. Is this in the UMS under conky and custom setup, where I add this this config change. Im not really sure where to change these values within Ums?
Yes, in the top section in your photo: igelcommunity.slack.com/files/U05DL7CSR62/F05UYV4PAMQ/03.10.2023_12.21.32_rec.png igelcommunity.slack.com/files/U05DL7CSR62/F05UYV4PAMQ/03.10.2023_12.21.32_rec.png
