      Dear Antix Friends,

      I run Antix 17 on my laptop using FluxBox and I love it.

      I installed Plank and Redshift and wonder how I get them to auto start at boot.

      Thanks a lot for all willing to help

      Dirk

      Update: I added plank to the startup at the /control center/session.DesktopSession

      but for WiCD it wants to have the root password and RedShift is a no show :-(

        The question with wicd was asked quite often.
        Maybe should be mentioned in the FAQ under internet.
        You have to enable the wicd daemon.Look here

          Thanks, you helped again and made it again in my youtube video ;-))

          However, it doesn’t work for RedShift, do you know how to get RedShift to auto start?

          Thanks

          Dirk

            IIRC, redshift itself doesn’t have a gui. I think redshift-gtk is the gui.

              Redshift is not installed on my system and you did not give much information what you tried until now, so i can only guess.
              If redshift works for you by typing in terminal redshift
              Then adding

              redshift &

              to the startup file you mentioned above should do the trick

              Maybe if you use geoclue for redshift, then it needs a internet-connection to start and if your internet starts somehow slow
              you could try to make redshift start a little later by adding this to the startup file

              sh -c “sleep 60; redshift”

              The 60 means 60 seconds, you can change it to your needs.
              Cool you still have fun with antix !

                @ Caprea and Dolphin,

                thank you guys, I used a mixture from you both and it works now as advertised :-))

                sh -c “sleep 20; redshift-gtk &“

                Now it fires up and I have the little icon showing in the panel ;-))
