How to enable color temp/night light in i3?

Hi everyone, i3 newbie here!

I’d like to enable color temperature/night light but can’t find how. I tried installing Redshift but I get the following error when I try to run it:

Trying location provider `geoclue2'...
Using provider `geoclue2'.
Using method `randr'.
Waiting for initial location to become available...

I installed geoclue but the error persists. Any help?

I’d recommend loading up on redshift command line parameters and launching redshift wherever you start other similar tools.

You could make a shell script and stick it in /usr/local/bin too.

You can determine your latitude/longitude on Google Maps and probably other places.

My parameters look like:

redshift -l XX.XX:XX.XX -m randr -P -t 6500:2800 -v -g 0.8

Use your lat/long for XX.XX:XX.XX. You may want to review the other parameters and tweak them.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the reply!

To be honest, I have no idea how to write bash scripts. I end up googling some more and found another app called redshift-gtk, and now it’s working as expected. :grinning:

There is no error…
