Simple... Create .startconky at ~/

Insert code below

#! /bin/sh -e
sleep 15
conky
exit 0

Then create an Startup Application. Under System->Preferences

And at command line field.

/bin/sh /home/username/.startconky

Thats all.

Well, first we'd need to get to the bottom of the problem. Does running conky from a terminal work? We can tell for sure that conky itself is not the problem. If you go into Startup Applications and change the Conky entry to sleep 35 && conky does it run? Yes? Problem solved.

Adding conky to my startup apps also didn't work very well for me. Instead, I added a shell script which sleeps for about 30 seconds, and then launches conky against my customized configuration scripts. I added that script to my startup applications.

#/bin/bash
sleep 30
conky -q -c ~/conkys/conkyrc_wireless.sh &
conky -q -c ~/conkys/conkyrc_weather.sh &
...
