 method config option

 
 by pepedopolous on: Jul 12 2012
 
Score 50%

Hi.
Love this plasmoid but since updatess to nvidia (302) and/or the kernel (3.4.4) it stopped working.

To fix it I made a config file to specify vidmode rather than randr.

Would you consider adding an option of choosing the method from the plasmoid so users in the future can choose the one which works for their hardware? Many thanks.
P

Actually I didn't add that option intentionally because redshift should fallback to vidmode when randr doesn't work. Infact this is the behaviour on my machine.

If you just launch redshift in the shell without specifing anything which is the output?

I usually get this:
Failed to start adjustment method randr.
Trying next method...
Using method `vidmode'.

In any case I can add that option in the plasmoid.

Hi, thanks for your reply.
If I don't specify the method, redshift appears to start successfully using randr.
However, nothing happens on the screen, so when using the plasmoid it doesn't work either.
The vidmode issue has been noted by the redshift developer: -

Sorry for putting another feature request here. I think in the event of one of the methods not working for some setups, it would be useful to have a preview mode which would show the transition from nighttime temp to daytime temp (yes f.lux has this).
Then if there was a tooltip for the method select which would say something like 'if randr doesn't work try vidmode', users could quickly solve such problems.

I'll fix the tooltip (actually I didn't care about the tooltips and they are all wrong). The preview is not possible untill redshift does not implement this feature. You should ask for this on the redshift page.

Oh well, never mind. Thanks again for your work.
I'm curious about your comment about the tooltips being wrong. Do you mean that the day and night temp. recommendations are wrong? If so I'm curious- what do you think they should be?

Actually I got an idea about the preview, it is possible. Any suggestion on how to embed the preview in the ui? Just a preview button or what? The F.lux animation is quite complicated.

About the tooltip: I fork this project from another one but I rewrite the whole code, the only piece remaining from the old program is part of the UI. I didn't pay attention on the tooltips and the actual tooltips are the ones from the old app, infact they still talk about F.lux (on the temperature suggestion). If you hover other the label autolaunch it talks about the gamma correction (because I cloned the label). So the tooltips need to be fixed.

I suppose a preview button would be fine.
The tooltip for this could be something like 'preview day to night transition'.
However, would this work in the instance that you had just installed redshift for the first time and placed the plasmoid somewhere? Redshift wouldn't be running so the code would have to start redshift if it isn't already running I guess.

Should work like this:
Suspend redshift of the plasmoid if running, run the loop, reenable redshift from the plasmoid.

I tried this. It's a bash script just to try out.
It needs usleep from here:
https://github.com/coolaj86/msleep-commandline

#!/bin/bash
temp=6500
redshift -x -m vidmode
while [ $temp -gt 2500 ]; do
redshift -O $temp -m vidmode
temp=$[$temp-10]
usleep 10000
done

I didn't fully read your comment.
I don't know what usleep is!
However I'm pretty sure your bash script does the job perfectly on my setup.

Hi! I'm trying to install this through the command line and I stumbled upon this error when running the "make" command:

make
[ 0%] Built target plasma_engine_redshift_automoc
Linking CXX shared module ../lib/plasma_engine_redshift.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lkworkspace

make[2]: *** [lib/plasma_engine_redshift.so] Error 1

Any suggestions?

 some issues installing latest version

Hi, I installed a new system with redshift and then compiled the latest 0.51 version of the plasma widget. The instructions didn't tell me that I needed to install g++ but once I did that it worked. But then I had the icon problem.

All I had was file:///usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/redshift-status-manual.svgz

I moved the icons from my old system into the new one and now it works, everything is great! But you should know that this didn't work right automatically.

Those icons are provided by the gtk-redshift package. I'll update redshift plasmoid to provide those icons, so that will not be required to install gtk-redshift.

I have used this in opensuse but I mainly use Ubuntu / Linux Mint KDE and if you could port this to ubuntu that would be awesome so thank you SO MUCH for your hard work with all the scripts and what not, and if you find time, i'd love to download this again!!!

Hi,
unfortunately I can't pack this software for any distribution, so if you want a package for ubuntu you should open a package request on the correct ubuntu section.

Actually there is already an open package request:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1008967
You should comment there to urge them!

You can also install it from source in the meanwhile, it's easy!
Just follow the instructions in the README file.

I report them here in any case:
Install these packages:
build-essential
cmake
kde-workspace-dev
redshift
checkinstall

Execute this from the main folder of the source you've downloaded form here:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(kde4-config --prefix) ..
make
sudo checkinstall install

Thank you so much for the quick reply

If I have time I will comment haha I have PLENTY of time today so I may do that if I don't have to sign up for someting because I don't want to have to remember all these logins

I may just build it from the commands you posted as well so thanks for that as well

This is just a GREAT plasmoid with the vector icon I can make it huge and it looks great, it's SO much better than GTK-redshift haha I hated that so this is just awesome

You should comment or you'll never see an official ubuntu package maybe. Use keepassx to remember the password!

Stay tuned, I'm going to release a small update in few days with an OSD to display the manual color temperature.

Bye

okay I will DEFINATELY install keepass haha
I actually remembered my launchpad password (and email)
AMAZING haha

and I commented ( i think) you may wanna make sure I did that correctly if you don't mind

Keep up the features, and would it be possibly to not kill redshift but have it update the color temp with a smooth fade or is redshift not made to do that?

 Presets -- just to make it nicer

 
 by timbuck2 on: Mar 10 2013
 
Score 50%

Not an urgent feature by ANY means, but I like presets so if you could, oh wait this is going to be really tough becasue the numbers are way off

.... well maybe a good 4700 for a default but xflux, the command utility for f.lux has the numbers a lot more accurate and about 1000k lower than redshift,

so if someone from the redshift team could fix that, (like they did in the WINDOWS redshift) ... then this would be a great feature to add but as it stands it's going to be very hard to make true presets because the numbers are off by a lot

guess we will have to wait huh...

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.
