I've installed f.lux some time ago and also had it in my startup apps. But now, all of a sudden, it doesn't startup automaticall anymore. I have the command "fluxgui" in my startup applications. If I open it from console, it works without a problem. Can I somehow debug, why the program was not auto started?
I've experienced the same issue.
Exec field in
sh -c "fluxgui >> ~/logflux.txt 2>&1" would allow you to examine the reason for the failure to start-up.
I've got the following traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py", line 381, in <module> app = Fluxgui() File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py", line 17, in __init__ self.indicator = Indicator(self) File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py", line 149, in __init__ self.setup_indicator() File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py", line 162, in setup_indicator 'gtk-icon-theme-name') ValueError: could not find setting
This bug is still present. BUT you can fix it by modifying line 162 of
theme =line to look like
theme = 'ubuntu-mono-dark'. If you don't have that theme installed, no problem, it just uses a default. Lines
163should look like this:
if gtk.gdk.screen_get_default(): theme = 'ubunto-mono-dark' if theme == 'ubuntu-mono-dark':
This fixed the issue for me.
