Redshift briefly appears on the taskbar at startup or when run and pops out of existence. I've installed Redshift Plasmoid for a GUI, but I can't get that to run either, and won't show up when I check my software.

  • Any error message if you start redshiftautostart?

  • no, it seems to be awaiting further input in the terminal. However, nothing else happens. May 18, 2015 at 15:08
  • I think this is down to problems with the kde, though i've got the ppa. Jun 22, 2015 at 11:00

I should have followed the instructions more closely (specifically the "cp" bit) for KDE, installed eclipse and it's cdt, and installed the plasma desktop itself.
