I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and i3 as window manager. After I have logged in to i3, upstart won't find my user jobs under ~/.config/upstart/. How can I make upstart find these config files without having to execute something like gnome-session?

Thanks.

edit, one of the jobs starts redshift, here is the config ~/.config/upstar/redshift.conf: respawn exec redshift -l 59:18 When i try to start this job with initctl start redshift: initctl: Unknown job: redshift
