Here's what I did to get it to work:
1) Under applications, go to Startup Applications. If an entry for Redshift already exists then click on it and then click on edit. Otherwise, click add. Set name to Redshift and set the comment to whatever you want. For the command, enter:
gtk-redshift -l manual
2) In your home folder press ctrl+h and that should list all of the hidden folders(folders beginning with a '.'). Go into your .config folder and create a new file and call it redshift.conf. Paste the following:
; Global settings
; The location provider and adjustment method settings
; are in their own sections.
; This is an example lat long for Portland, OR
; In this example screen 1 is adjusted by vidmode. Note
; that the numbering starts from 0, so this is actually
; the second screen.
Go here to get your latitude and longitude and replace 'YOURLAT' and 'YOURLON' with the respective values. Save and close the file. Restart computer and Redshift should have started(indicated by the lightbulb icon the the menu bar).
So, hopefully this helps someone. If this is against the rules or anything for whatever reason I apologize. Hopefully this helps someone out there.
