Redshift has no effect in Wayland Session
Last modified: 2017-08-04 15:22:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Redshift doesn't work in Gnome Wayland Session at all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Redshift
2. Start Gnome Wayland Session
Redshift has no effect at all.
Redshift should "move" screen colors to red.
Testing should be done during night since Redshift has no visible effect during day.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Gnome bug (request for a built-in similar feature)
I can confirm that redshift does not work on wayland session on Fedora 24
upstream bug : https://github.com/jonls/redshift/issues/55
Still see that it does not work still as of today. So in this case, where do we go from here for a change? Wayland developers? Redshift developers? Gnome developers?

I would suggest bugging the GNOME developers, as IIRC it needs to be implemented via the compositor to work. Also, I would doubt they would put it as an API in Wayland, but the GNOME dev's probably have more leverage to get this done.
Ah found a request for it here (for those interested):
redshift is now broken by default in F25 due to this issue. Thankfully, unbreaking it by disabling Wayland is really easy (just uncomment the WayLandEnable line in /etc/gdm/custom.conf).

No, that's not a nice solution. Much easier is to simply pick Xorg as your session type. See e.g. the picture at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F25_bugs#Wayland_issues .

This bug should be moved to version 25. Or at least been considered as FutureFeature in Rawhide.
For anyone interested, I made a COPR to work around the issue for now:
Thank you Jeremy, works fine. Hope changes get accepted into the gnome-settings-daemon. So it can become an official extension for Gnome shell.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
Note that the "nightlight" function landed in Gnome 3.23 a little while ago, which should be in rawhide. I have not tested this myself, but AFAIK, this should provide this functionality.
See also [bug 1443620].
Nightlight works nicely under gnome-wayland in F26. If there are any issues with that, it should be tracked in new bugs.
