adopted. i don't know if/when this may have an update, but i'll take responsibility for updating the pkgbuild if that ever happens.

Hi, thanks for the useful program i just want to know if i could change the tray icon cause it's a little bit old and doesn't match my theme.

@drws That's not a bug. ~/.redshiftgrc is a file that is created by redshiftgui, not a file that is installed by pacman. Pacman cannot manage configuration files that packages create after they are installed.

drws commented on 2017-07-04 20:48 (UTC)

I think there is a bug in the package as ~/.redshiftgrc is not removed even if pacman is invoked with -Rn. Can someone else reproduce that?

Thanks! Really helpful

xyproto commented on 2014-10-27 13:09 (UTC)

Upstream fix problem with locales ( Git version works fine, but I not test binary version.

naszar commented on 2014-08-15 00:52 (UTC)

Sorry, but my previous patch is not complete. This one ( is are tested and completely solve issue with locales. But problem that binary version of redshiftgui compiled not from source code presented at GitHub. GitHub version is broken and not buildable (but it is possible fix it, if you want I can show fixes). And problem that current package use binary version of redshiftgui.

Since project is dead, is it possible to apply the patch suggested by naszar here? Latest comment

goetzc commented on 2014-04-23 23:21 (UTC)

@naszar, yes, the LC_NUMERIC seems to be the best option. To not include another file in /usr/bin/, I thought to change in redshiftgui.desktop the "Exec=redshiftgui" entry to "Exec=LC_NUMERIC=C redshiftgui", but if executed directly, it would have no effect, only when executed using the .desktop file. It's a pity that redshiftgui isn't developed anymore.

naszar commented on 2014-04-23 22:58 (UTC)

xyproto, thank you, works fine. @goetzc, it was first bugreport ( to upstream, and it's about 4 years old. Pull request will have no chance. Fork and full support will be to complicated. I think, xyproto's fix is pretty well for this concrete package (redshiftgui-bin). I use /usr/bin/redshiftfui in XFCE's autostart, how redshiftgui.desktop can help me?

goetzc commented on 2014-04-23 22:03 (UTC)

@naszar, the package is binary, but the source is in GitHub. @xyproto, is it not more convenient to change the Exec= entry in redshiftgui.desktop?

xyproto commented on 2014-04-23 14:10 (UTC)

naszar, updated the package. Does it work for you now?

naszar commented on 2014-04-22 22:51 (UTC)

xyproto, can I help you? We can make patch, but package is binary. I think that simplest way is use 'LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" redshiftgui' to run program with loacales that uses ',' instead '.' as decimal mark.

xyproto commented on 2014-04-22 21:43 (UTC)

Thanks, naszar. Since upstream seems to be unresponsive, I will fix this in the package. Flagging as out-of-date as a reminder to myself to fix this.

naszar commented on 2014-04-20 02:14 (UTC)

There is problem with russian locale. In ~/.redshiftgrc "map=177.00,100;3.00,0;-6.00,0;" turns into "map=177,00,0;3,00,0;-6,00,0;", and day change of scheme don't work. It's look like upstream bug, but it seems to me that upstream is dead.

xyproto commented on 2014-02-11 08:59 (UTC)

goetzx, thanks for notifying. The reason is that the binary was installed as $pkgname. Fixed.

goetzc commented on 2014-02-11 05:13 (UTC)

Why did also change the binary name from redshiftgui to redshiftgui-bin? If it is located in /usr/bin, what is the purpose of the rename?

xyproto commented on 2014-02-09 17:23 (UTC)

Adopted the redshift orphan. Renamed to redshiftgui-bin (by uploading redshiftgui-bin and merging redshift into redshift-bin).

commented on 2010-11-05 23:47 (UTC)

Modify the pkgbuild, the right source is${pkgver}-Linux-${CARCH}.tar.gz

commented on 2010-11-05 10:43 (UTC)

There is a problem with the site It's unreachable

csousa commented on 2010-08-02 10:48 (UTC)

Attention! This package is BINARY! It shall be named redshiftgui-bin.
