Redshift plasmoid provides a configuration interface and allows to start/stop Redshift daemon either manually or automatically based on the current activity.

Important note
After install, reboot or run redshiftautostart manually to start using the plasmoid.

 No discernible change

I've tried this plasmoid and I cannot see a visible difference when toggling the icon.
If I change the day any night temps on the plasmoid settings I can see the differences. But after restarting (even after selecting it to autostart) upon restart it becomes ineffectual

I have reverted to autostart a script that calls redshift
/usr/bin/redshift -l xx.xx:-xx.xx

(the xx.xx are my lat and long)
That works ok.

Using Opensuse 13.1 KDE 4.12.4

Should more info be required I'll gladly oblige.

I had the same issue on openSUSE 13.1 until I read the doc that says you need to restart/reboot. After rebooting it worked.

You might want to try testing redshift first, try this command:

redshift -O 2000

If this doesn't change anything then the problem might be redshift itself, or KDE.

Not sure how the color change is achieved, maybe it requires the desktop effects to be enabled ? (openGL)

I'm using these versions:

The first time redshift plasmoid is installed the PC must be restarted in order to automatically launch redshiftautostart that is a small utility that enables all the functionalities of redshift. If this program is not running redshift-plasmoid won't work.

You can execute:

ps -Al |grep redshiftautostart

to check it's running.

The desktop effects are not needed to make redshift work.

 plasma 5

Are there any plans for a plasma 5 port?

Thank you for your work Simone

Given that the developer of redshift is adding a dbus interface that will make easy to write interfaces for redshift, I'm thinking of rewriting the plasmoid in python. In this way it'll become distribution independent and doesn't require any compilation. If this is possible (i.e. if the qt python bindings allow me to implement all the current features, and if can make it work without a specific dataengine), I won't port the current plasmoid to plasma 5 but I will just release the new one. Otherwise I'll port it to plasma 5. I hope having time to work on this the next month.

No progress at all. I'm sorry, but I've been very busy in the last period (and I'm still so). I hope to begin working on it soon.

I might help you out (being a programmer and all), although I have no experience using Qt Python binding and writing Plasma applets.

I'll try to look into that, though.

Your help is welcome.

The applet is currently written in C++ not python (the legacy version was in python). The new version must be written in QML.

I think the needed steps are:
- Port the main CMake file to the KF5 formatting
- Test the dataengine in Plasma 5
- Write the interface of the applet in QML
- Make it communicate with the data engine

The two last steps should not be very difficult. Unfortunately there is still a lack of documentation about Plasma 5.

Here some useful tutorial.

I've started looking into the CMake file porting.

I've created the branch plasma5-porting. Any modification concerning the port can be added there through pull requests.

I've committed the first porting of the CMakeFiles.

Thanks for all the info. I'm a C++ dev by heart but I'll try to absorb what's needed to know about QML to be of any use. ;)

I'll check out the links and start from there.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
