Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

Everytime I reboot my tint2 doesn't appear. I have to open the menu and manually turn it on. This started right after I updated my bunsenlab repo. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it or not, but that is the only change I can think of that would of caused something like this to happen. Sorry if this question has already been addressed somewhere else.

What command are you using in autostart?

This thread was started by @ov specifically for feedback for his development version of tint2

Just open autostart in your text editor, copy the text and paste it here using [ code ] tags. Pastebin is unecessary for this kind of thing.

Re: Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

I still have to manually turn it on every time I reboot. Just to recap the problem.

Re: Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

Do you have anything at /usr/bin/bl-tint2-session or ~/bunsen-utilities/bl-tint2-session?

sudo find / -name bl-tint2-session

If you boot up without starting tint2 manually, what is the output of:

grep tint /var/log/Xorg.0.log

damo will probably have a better idea about this as that is his script...

If you comment out the bl-tint2-session line and un-comment the stock tint2 line, does it start then?

(sleep 2; tint2) &
## To start a saved tint2 session,  comment out the line above, and uncomment:
#(sleep 2s && bl-tint2-session --autostart) &

Yes, /usr/bin/bl-tint2-session showed up but I didn't open it or change anything in it.
I skipped step 2.  :8  and didn't check:

grep tint /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Lucky for me step 3 worked.

Re: Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

Run the autostart command in a terminal, see what errors show up

bl-tint2session --autostart

(NB The most recent version no longer uses the --autostart option)

It would be nice to know why that's not working on your system (in the interest of BL development).

Do you get any error messages in the terminal if you run these commands:

killall tint2
bl-tint2-session --autostart

EDIT: Too slow...

Great minds think alike, eh damo?

As a matter of fact I do:

jack@SyCog:~$ bl-tint2-session --autostart
	ERROR: sorry I don't understand the input

USAGE:  with no command argument, the script uses the chosen
	Tint2 session file "/home/jack/.config/tint2/tint2-sessionfile",
	if it exists, otherwise the default tint2rc is used

	To start them at login, add the following line to autostart:

		(sleep 2s && bl-tint2-session) &
jack@SyCog:~$

Re: Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

You need to keep up with the changelog for BL netinstall upgrades. You presumably upgraded the packages, which upgraded the script, but you didn't manually copy the changes to your user config. (Creating a new user should work OK though).

NB This is a testing installation, so you need to keep on top of it yourself.

If you have the time would you explain how to keep up with my changelog? I don't know how to copy the changes to the user config file. I don't mind testing BL and I don't mind learning how to stay on top of it, but please just point me in the right direction. I know its a pain to deal with me, but I'm trying to help test and contribute.

This is what I have been told to do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
cd ~/bunsen-netinstall-master
./upgrade-bunsen-pkgs -u

Please let me know what all I should be doing in order to "keep on top of it".

Re: Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

The bunsen-configs changelog.

Any changes to the user configs won't affect an existing user, so you need to manually copy any relevant files (usually in /usr/share/bunsen/skel). In this case, the scripts in /usr/bin were updated, but you were still using the old autostart tint2 command.

So either manually edit your autostart or copy the newer version from /usr/share/bunsen/skel/.config/openbox/autostart.

Re: Tint2 does not appear after a reboot

If you haven't got any special personal modifications in your config files (it's just a test system after all) you can set everything to the current defaults in /usr/share/bunsen/skel by removing ~/.config/bunsen/bl-setup and logging out and in again.
