Shall I update the package release version in order to force a rebuild? I just did a rebuild and it works for me.

Seems to be a temporary issue. Just checked the build and it download without errors here:

Added systemd timer and autostart which will be setup by the install script.

florianmw commented on 2019-03-11 18:17

I just put AutomaThemely to autostart, but it seems you're right: I missed the install script: It looks to me like it is designed to run as user systemd service/timer. I think it doesn't make sense to use the postinst as is, because SUDO_USER is used there which requires installation via sudo and also won't work on multi-user systems. My proposal would be to deliver a systemd timer with the package, which is configured to run daily and after boot (like described here: and additionally an instruction how to activate it.

It seems like this package doesn't change theme automatically. Do I have to enable some service/timer after I install this package? If so, is sudo systemctl enable automathemely.timer the right way to do it?
