In the days that people could show off with their computer with no less than 2 mb ram, I decided I did not like working with computers, however, things went a bit differently afterwards ;).

Started with Mac, switched to Windows and finally ended up with Ubuntu, just before Unity was introduced (must have been somewhere in 2011).

@MuhammadHassan 1. does it work in your initial setup? (just starting the script once from rc.local on boot) 2. does it work when you run sudo sh /etc/rc.local?

also @Tim Guys, I found this: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/redshift/+bug/1188961 you can try the solution down on the page: install geoclue-hostip

@Nymeria absolutely (I know because I killed it :)) and Tim: it should indeed. (it does here, and if I add it to startup applications, it works here as well)

/usr/bin/redshift starts redshift without interface (see comments on the post)

comment How to set environment variable in Eric Python IDE
in Python, you can add a path by: sys.path.insert(0, "/path/to") (and of course import sys)

@MuhammadHassan NB: the script only appears "under its own name" in the processes list (ps-e) if your line in /etc/rc.local is without sh (and the script should be executable). As in my example: /home/jacob/Desktop/while.sh &. P.S. I removed a number of my comments.

comment Why I can't add redshift to startup?
is the issue with redshift only? (btw, the command should indeed be redshift-gtk)

Can you check if Startup Applications creates a starter in ~/.config/autostart?

comment Why I can't add redshift to startup?
exactly, which means you should be able to run it by the command redshift-gtk in your startup applications. Silly thought, but could you try /usr/bin/redshift?

comment Why I can't add redshift to startup?
The command should anyway be redshift-gtk (see the Exec= line in its desktop file in /usr/share/applications). Since it runs from command line, it should run as a startup application as well.

comment Script for changing resolution!
To put the .desktop file in /usr/local/share/applications/ is perfectly allright, but then also put the script in /usr/local/bin (globally/globally or locally/locally)

comment Script for changing resolution!
Maybe you also want to hint that there needs to be consistency in the locations of the .desktop file (globally) and the location of the script. (maybe store the .desktop file in `~/.local/share/applications)

... No need to set Terminal=true here :)

If you are new to Ubuntu, you will probably not feel comfortable with scripts, but this might be interesting for you: askubuntu.com/a/490398/72216

Those are the ones that appear in Dash and the launcher (try and drag one over the launcher).

comment How do I change the unity launcher dash home icon in ubuntu 12.04?
It is in /usr/share/applications, but a cleaner procedure is to leave that file alone, but copy it to ~/.local/share/applications (cp /usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/nautilus.desktop) , then edit it as described here: askubuntu.com/a/190171/72216 After logout / in, you will see the changed icon.

I am not sure what you did in the past, but far more easy than actually replace the icon (I assume that is what you are trying to do) is editing the "Icon=" line of its desktop file. (We are talking about the "Files" icon, right?)

comment Ubuntu Trusty - corresponding Debian release? Wheezy or Squeeze?
Neither of them seems to fit, but If you have to pick one of those, it would definitely be Wheezy. See askubuntu.com/questions/445487/…

comment Getting Web Designers to use Ubuntu
Just for the record, save for web plugin for Gimp should work in 14.04 version of Gimp (using 2.8.10). I am using it anyway.
