    Thumbs up Redshift Geoclue Error

    Anyone know how to get Redshift working under Tumbleweed besides using Wayland with NightColour?!?

    If you ran into an error,
    You should post exactly what you did (preferably the command) and the result (which likely includes any errors).

    I have the same problem:
    Code:
    ~$ redshift
    Trying location provider `geoclue2'...
    Using provider `geoclue2'.
    Using method `randr'.
    Waiting for initial location to become available...
    Unable to start GeoClue client: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: 'redshift' disallowed, no agent for UID 500.
    Access to the current location was denied by GeoClue!
    Make sure that location services are enabled and that Redshift is permitted
    to use location services. See https://github.com/jonls/redshift#faq for more
    information.

    First,
    Be careful posting to an existing thread.
    When in doubt, don't. Start a new thread.

    Secondly,
    There are a couple technologies that call themselves "redshift" and the @OP topic is about a graphical rendering technology.
    @borisk,
    I'm pretty sure you're not posting about a rendering technology, you're posting about a container technology, and in general container technologies should be posted to the virtualization forum (containers aren't virtualization, but have enough similarities discussions belong there).
