Redshift plasmoid 0.5 released

Redshift plasmoid 0.5 released

Finally I found some time to update redshift plasmoid.

The major change in the new version is the possibility to set the temperature color manually , a.k.a manual mode. To do so you just need to scroll the mouse wheel over the widget and immediately it switch to manual mode, starting to set the color temperature you desire.  When it is in manual mode, redshift won’t keep set the color temperature but just hold the current one. To switch back to auto mode it’s enough to click on the widget.

Moreover, redshift has become translatable so don’t hesitate to translate it. I need your help to do this! To translate redshift you can use the kde translation system lokalize. You just need to setup a new project, open the .pot file you find in the redshift source folder, save it as xx.po, where xx is your language code, and translate every item through lokalize.

I hope you’ll enjoy this new version.


  • Added manual mode
  • Improved some labels and tooltips
  • Added translation support
  • Added Italian translation

  1. Thank you for a great plasmoid.

    I do have a suggestion to help travelers trying to correct jet lag; add a button to the settings dialog to try guessing the lat/long from geoclue. I wouldn’t make this auto update without user intervention, as it’s not unusual for the wifi in coffee shops and hotels in the US to be un-listed or inaccurate in the database at making geoclue’s location by ip function a little hit or miss. Adding a link to next to the guess button might be helpful if you do use my idea.
