I3 - What is running conky1.10_shortcuts_maia on startup?

Newbie to Linux here. I can see that conky_maia is being started in the the i3 config file, but I can’t find anything about conky1.10_shortcuts_maia. What is causing it to run on startup?

Welcome to the Forum!

In the i3 config file an executable called start_conky_maia is executed at startup:

This is a file that can be found in the /usr/bin/ directory and its contents are:


conky -c /usr/share/conky/conky1.10_shortcuts_maia &&
conky -c /usr/share/conky/conky_maia &&

exit 0

As you can see, this executable calls two instances of Conky, one of them refers to the shortcuts you mentioned.


Thank you
