First you have to download the .zip version of redshift from:
Then you have to install the dependencies:
libdrm (Optional, for DRM support)
libxcb, libxcb-randr (Optional, for RandR support)
libX11, libXxf86vm (Optional, for VidMode support)
geoclue (Optional, for geoclue support)
python3, pygobject, pyxdg (Optional, for GUI support)
appindicator (Optional, for Ubuntu-style GUI status icon)
as mentioned here
And now you do the installation:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libxcb-randr0-dev
./configure --enable-randr --prefix=$HOME/redshift/root \
I am in Colombia so the the config file I use is: (lat:lon from Colombia)
; Global settings for redshift
; Set the day and night screen temperatures
; Enable/Disable a smooth transition between day and night
; 0 will cause a direct change from day to night screen temperature.
; 1 will gradually increase or decrease the screen temperature
; Set the screen brightness. Default is 1.0
; It is also possible to use different settings for day and night since version 1.8.
; Set the screen gamma (for all colors, or each color channel individually)
; Set the location-provider: 'geoclue', 'gnome-clock', 'manual'
; type 'redshift -l list' to see possible values
; The location provider settings are in a different section.
; Set the adjustment-method: 'randr', 'vidmode'
; type 'redshift -m list' to see all possible values
; 'randr' is the preferred method, 'vidmode' is an older API
; but works in some cases when 'randr' does not.
; The adjustment method settings are in a different section.
; Configuration of the location-provider:
; type 'redshift -l PROVIDER:help' to see the settings
; ex: 'redshift -l manual:help'
; Configuration of the adjustment-method
; type 'redshift -m METHOD:help' to see the settings
; ex: 'redshift -m randr:help'
; In this example, randr is configured to adjust screen 1.
; Note that the numbering starts from 0, so this is actually the second screen.
And that solved my problem
