This weird little window is on my desktop after i uninstalled conky. I tried reinstalling and adding a theme but i don't think it's even conky.....any ideas on how i can get rid of it and reinstall conky? Also the conky config files seem to be gone...

Re: Strange conky-like screen on desktop

Welcome to #!. That's conky running without a config file. Edit ~/.config/openbox/autostart and remove any lines that have "conky" in them (the lines that start conky). Or uninstall conky if you're sure you never want to use it.

sudo apt-get remove conky

If you want the #! conky back, copy the conkyrc file from /etc/skel back to your home directory:

cp /etc/skel/.conkyrc ~

Re: Strange conky-like screen on desktop

I think that this is indeed conky.

Check if there is a conky process running in your machine:

Open: lxtask -> right click on your mouse, and then kill the process.

How do you uninstalled conky?

Take care,
