Flux on Linux mint not working.



  • when starting the flux-gui, nothing happens. I have already set the lat, long. Pressing on preview button works for few seconds then it returns back. I tried opening from terminal, applet starts with following warnings on console.

    $ sudo fluxgui
    [sudo] password for tc:
    /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py:162: GtkWarning: Cannot transform xsetting Net/IconThemeName of type gchararray to type GdkColor

    'gtk-icon-theme-name')
    /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py:162: Warning: g_value_unset: assertion 'G_IS_VALUE (value)' failed
    'gtk-icon-theme-name')
    /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/fluxgui/fluxgui.py:162: GtkWarning: Cannot transform xsetting Net/IconThemeName of type gchararray to type gint

    'gtk-icon-theme-name')



  • Hey thupten, I am having the same issue running the 4.2.2 kernel on Arch Linux. Did you manage to get it working?

    I think those errors are harmless and are only related to the applet icon.

    Have you tried running the xflux daemon manually? I am going to test something like this for my location:

    xflux -l 53.5216 -g -113.5110 -k 3400



  • Yep, xflux works great! Thanks for putting out the command, I could not remember it, so that makes it easy for others!
    You can put it in a startup command.



  • Just wondering if anyone managed to solve this? I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 and I have the same issue.

    If not, is there a way to set xflux to transition gradually on the command line? It doesn't have a man page and I can't find a list of parameters anywhere.
