I wrote an elementary script for a restarting Conky and put this to the KCron for executing every half an hour.

Code:

locus ~ # cat /var/spool/cron/crontabs/frag
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (/tmp/kde-frag/systemsettingsW23182.tmp installed on Mon Jul 29 14:07:00 2013)
# (Cron version V5.0 -- $Id: crontab.c,v 1.12 2004/01/23 18:56:42 vixie Exp $)
#No comment
*/30 * * * *    /home/frag/.scripts/for_conky.sh


# File generated by KCron the Monday, July 29, 2013 02:07 PM.


The script:
Code:

locus ~ # cat /home/frag/.scripts/for_conky.sh
#!/bin/bash

killall conky
conky &

exit 0


When I'm clicking on script in Dolphin, Conky is restarting normally, but when the script is being executed with KCron, Conky is being killed only and not being launched.
How to fix it?

Instead of
Code:
conky &

try
Code:
conky -d

Good. And do you understand why
Code:

works from the terminal but not when you run it from cron?
