Many thanks for a super distro.

Yes, you will need to take it off startup.

First, open your file manager. If it is like mine you will see on the top an option to enter path. Paste this: "~/.config/autostart" without " marks. Then you'll see the thing that starts the "clock" as shown on screenshot. Delete that file. see screenshot https://snag.gy/Afrb4s.jpg .

Then you need to go on "session and startup" and disable the conky (clock). See this screenshot: https://snag.gy/ngauiG.jpg .

Hope you have success, enjoy ChaletOS! Wink Very Happy

hmm maybe it goes away when you delete the file in ~/.config/autstart. It didnt on mine cuz i didnt remove it because i was not trying to turn off my conky.

Try logging out of your UAC and logging in again. See if the clock dies or not.

Just a thought, but the system actually has a control applet that handles autostart settings. Open the settings (like a control panel) program and select 'Session and Startup' then click the tab 'Application Autostart'

In this area one can easily set the programs to stop or start without removing any files. This way, it is possible to access the startup capability, at a later date, should it be needed. I use this to shut off bluetooth since my hardware doesn't have this capability.

You can also add programs here such as the Pidgin messenger or even a user level script. A little caution is advised because some things are used by the desktop such as Pulse Audio or Screen Locker. These are controlled in other ways.
