On Xubuntu 21.04 with Wayland, Redshift doesn't work anymore.

I have already tried the following apps that were mentioned to me:

  • f.lux doesn't work.
  • Safe Eyes no temperature color settings.
  • Blue Shift doesn't exist.
  • Brightness Controller does many other things.
  • Iris doesn't exist.
  • Clight doesn't exist.
  • Calise doesn't exist.
  • RedshiftGUI doesn't work.

Can you suggest some alternatives that work?

  • No alternatives needed for something that is already integrated in system settings. May 31, 2021 at 16:15
  • sorry but I am on Xubuntu (XFCE) 21.04. Where is the tool you mentioned?

  • Is XFCE even compatible with Wayland? It is planned for 4.18 wiki.xfce.org/releng/wayland_roadmap May 31, 2021 at 16:24
  • and then Redshift doesn't work anymore? on 20.10 it works fine

    I just clean installed Xubuntu 21.04. Redshift installed without an issue and runs just fine. Sometimes when you upgrade from another distro it can cause applications to not work properly. Also, there is no sign of Wayland being installed in my Xubuntu 21.04 here.

Tint-all has a Sephia setting - it leaves the mouse still in black and white which can probably be adjusted somehow
