CentOS 7: Close after "latitude or zipcode" popup



  • Hi guys,

    I'm using CentOS 7 64bit and have installed f.lux like here described. I'm able to start f.lux. At the first start I'm asked to enter latitude and zipcode. When I confirm the dialog with ok the whole applet close. That prevent it from using the applet.

    The syslog has shown the following lines:
    Apr 17 14:31:02 NP730U3E-WLAN fluxgui.desktop: fluxgui is already running, exiting
    Apr 17 14:31:02 NP730U3E-WLAN fluxgui.desktop: Exception AttributeError: AttributeError("'FluxGUI' object has no attribute 'xflux_controller'",) in <bound method FluxGUI.del of <main.FluxGUI object at 0x22a6a90>> ignored

    Then I've made the following change:
    sed -i 's/ProcessUnpackaged = no/ProcessUnpackaged = yes/' /etc/abrt/abrt-action-save-package-data.conf

    Now the error mesasge is anotherone but the behaviour is the same.

  • @cscholz instead of using what looks like fluxgui to me, go through xflux: https://justgetflux.com/linux.html It's down at the bottom.



  • @Tungsten_smooth Thanks. After downloading and installing xflux to /usr/sbin/xflux everything works fine!



  • I ran fluxgui and it opened up. I put in my latitude and changed the colour temperature. I pressed OK and the dialog disappeared. How do I reopen the preferences screen? I've tried:
    fluxgui -help
    fluxgui --help
    but no help information is provided.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanking you.



  • I am using this distro:
    CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
