conky-process doesn't terminate
Last modified: 2013-02-13 19:58:55 EST
Description of problem:
When useing lxdm as displaymanager conky would not terminate when log out from a xfce/opbenbox session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
everytime when log out
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log out from session
2. in lxdm you'll see conky
conky is still running. After a new login there are two conky-processes running.
conky should terminate
kill -9 `pgrep conky`
to /etc/lxdm/PostLogout works as a work-a-round.
How is conky started?
Conky hasn't changed in a while, so I'd suspect a change in a different component if it worked before.
conky ist started via .config/openbox/autostart.sh:
In xfce conky is added to autostarted applications in the xfce settings menu.
Problem also exists in Fedora 15.
Please try the 0.4.1 update from
The problem already exists in lxdm-0.4.1-1.fc16
You mean "still" instead of "already", right?
Please try enabling the "Reset X server" option in /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf.
Enabling the "Reset X server" doesn't stop/kill conky when loggin out of an openbox-session.
Same behaviour in fedora 18.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
