    as you can see above when i run fluxgui after a clean install i get this, and i cant figure out whats the deal here. the user friendly "flux indicator applet" link in the dock does absolutely nothing. if you happen to see a workaround please show me a way to get it work. kernel is: 4.19.0-1-amd64.

  • ive installed redshift until I can get flux running. redshift has a working taskbar button as gui, but that stuff turns on my cpu fan for whatever reason so I cant keep it on running during daytime without the noise. i gotto switch it on/off to avoid the fan spinning.

  • Hey @lazazael This worked for me. ( I am using manjaro Linux)
