Redshift on Manjaro
#1
Hello,

Since I use my Pinebook Pro regularly at night, I'd really like a blue light filter. Sadly, I can't get Redshift to work:
Code:
$ redshift -O 2700
Using method `randr'.

I did some research and found this issue, suggesting to use the experimental OpenGL driver. So I installed mesa-git (which replaced the mesa package). That didn't work, presumably because that issue was for the RPi.

Also, I tried enabling OpenGL ES 3.0 support as documented on the wiki, which didn't work either.

So, my question is: How do I get redshift (or another blue light filter) to work on the Pinebook Pro with X.org?

I'm having the same issue with my Pinebook Pro running Fedora 32.
But I'd use Gnome's built-in night mode. (which in my case doesn't work)

I'll try testing this on different distros, maybe it will work with the legacy 4.4 kernel....

My understanding is that Redshift (or built-in Night Color mode) doesn't work yet on the mainline kernel. See also earlier thread: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=10189

My current solution for this is to boot from the BSP kernel, as described here: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=9253

This is obviously far from ideal, but it's the only workaround I've found so far for enabling Redshift under Manjaro on the Pinebook Pro. If anyone else finds a better solution I'd love to know Smile
