xflux (F.lux) does not run - only supports "24/32-bit displays"


xflux has been running fine on my desktop (Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS) using Slackware 12.2 or 13.0. However, xflux no longer runs on my wife's laptop (Dell Inspiron 5100 with a Mobility Radeon).

It used to run under Kubuntu 8.04. After that was upgraded to 9.04 I now get the following message:

"Sorry, we only support 24/32-bit displays right now"

Yet the display is 24-bit...

The laptop is now running Slackware 13.0 but has the same issue. No hardware changed, so this is purely a software issue. Ideally I could recompile this little program, but I don't think the sources are available.

Has anyone had any experience with fixing this or have any ideas on how to get it to work?

thank you in advance.

/var/log/Xorg.0.log confirms you are using 24 bit depth? Can you attach it to a post here or pastebin the file?

Code:
$> grep Depth /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(==) RADEON(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(--) Depth 24 pixmap format is 32 bpp
(II) RADEON(0): Depth moves disabled by default

Hmm... Yeah, that's pretty definitive. Maybe a bug in xflux?

That's what I am thinking. Perhaps it does not like the never radeon driver or something. I did not see a place to send bug reports, but I sent an email reporting this issued to the email listed at the bottom of the project home page.
