Hello, I recently found that this package still doesn't have randr in the method list when it is built within a minimal container. May I ask you to add xorgproto to the dependencies? I think it is the simplest way to fix it. It also weighs less than a megabyte when downloaded and 1.4M when installed, so the overall diskspace usage will not increase too much to keep the name "minimal" on it.

I orphan this PKGBUILD, I don't use it anymore since a solution is integrated in KDE.

Hi, I believe building this in a chroot leads to randr not being built in the package because configure fails to find libxcb's randr.h file; the issue is that by removing the dep on libxxf86vm and building in a chroot you will not have its recursive dependency libxcb.. Could you add libxcb or solve this another way?

Thanks in advance for maintaining the package!

Hi, where is the .service file? sudo systemctl start redshift.service and sudo systemctl start redshift-gtk.service gives the error Failed to start redshift.service: Unit redshift.service not found.

I get configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --disable-geoclue, this can simply be removed from the PKGBUILD (just leave --disable-geoclue2).

Please list optional dependencies mentioned here:

@rsa, done, thank you

rsa commented on 2019-04-26 20:18 (UTC)

You can add --disable-vidmode and remove the dependency on libxxf86vm

Looks like the unit file is no longer present, so removing it causes the build to fail: rm: cannot remove '/build/redshift-minimal/pkg/redshift-minimal/usr/lib/systemd/user/redshift-gtk.service': No such file or directory

I was thinking about the even more simplified PKGBUILD than what @UnCO proposed. I was very curious why the official redshift package [1] doesn't need to execute bootstrap file in order to generate the configure file. So the answer was that the archive with source code redshift-1.10.tar.xz already contain this file, but the archive v1.10.tar.gz doesn't. So here [2] it is my very minimal version of the PKGBUILD without any python dependency and executing bootstrap. I have build it in the clean chroot without any problems. [1] [2] Edit: Updated the PKGBUILD, by mistake I enabled geoclue2.

UnCO commented on 2015-01-08 01:33 (UTC)

I removed python, only keep python2 on my Arch. (no python in my $PATH) With out python dependency, it still successfully built.

UnCO commented on 2015-01-08 01:28 (UTC) Those python codes are for gui only. Since this is a minimal config version, and we already set --disable-gui, I believe we can remove python from makedepends.

I had to install intltool to get the build working.

New version

WonderWoofy commented on 2014-04-26 15:00 (UTC)

Bump the version in the PKGBUILD and update checksums. Just tested and works fine.

hcartiaux commented on 2014-04-13 15:00 (UTC)

Thanks schalox, I've updated the PKGBUILD

schalox commented on 2014-04-12 23:38 (UTC)

Here's a patch for 1.9: - Switch to python3 - Removed deprecated --disable-gnome-clock - Added --disable-drm to disable libdrm dependency - This version adds systemd .service-files for redshift and redshift-gtk. The last line of package() removes redshift-gtk's service file.

hcartiaux commented on 2013-12-02 13:03 (UTC)

Thank you Raziel23, I update this package now :)

Raziel23 commented on 2013-11-27 13:44 (UTC)

Here is the working PKGBUILD for redshift-minimal version 1.8: I have added --disable-ubuntu option which won't include useless icons to the package.

The program will crash if it was compiled with geoclue installed and then geoclue was removed. It should be reflected in the PKGBUILD, either by adding geoclue as a dependency, or by appending --disable-geoclue to ./configure line (making the package really minimal).

hcartiaux commented on 2012-10-26 11:18 (UTC)

geoclue seems to be an optional dependency[1], it's not in the official redshift package[2] and I try to keep this PKGBUILD in sync with it. I'm interested if you can test or share additional information [1] [2]

yegorius commented on 2012-10-26 10:12 (UTC)

Seems that the package depends on libgeoclue.

hcartiaux commented on 2012-06-02 20:46 (UTC)

I've just discovered and tested successfully redshift-plasmoid with redshift-minimal It works great :)

Please add provides=('redshift')

hcartiaux commented on 2012-02-02 08:58 (UTC)

If you flag a package as out-of-date, please explain your reason because I don't get it : * the latest version is 1.7 * it builds

hcartiaux commented on 2011-12-23 00:50 (UTC)

Thanks qwerty12, it's fixed now ;)

qwerty12 commented on 2011-12-20 16:19 (UTC)

Hi, in your PKGBUILD, "--disable-gnomeclock" should be "--disable-gnome-clock"

hcartiaux commented on 2011-08-19 01:04 (UTC)

This package kills all the gtk and gnome dependencies. It is perfect if you want to use redshift with this kde plasmoid : So now, you have the main features of redshift for KDE 4 without the bloat side:)
