I’ve been after using Qubes for a while and over the weekend took the plunge to install it on my computer, and it’s all gone well so far.
The first program I need to get working is Redshift in order to protect my eyes (I’ve got a big screen!).
I installed it no problem in the Debian-11 Template, using the Terminal command sudo apt install redshift
Terminal connected to the internet, and has installed it (Redshift version 1.12-4.1)
Afterwards I ran the Qubes Update comman from the Qubes Tools menu.
However I have no idea how to launch it - it doesn’t appear to be anywhere. I’ve opened up the debian-11: Qube Settings in the debian-11 Template tab, and checked under the applications tab, and Redshift isn’t there in the Available section.
I’ve next checked the personal:Qube settings in the personal qube tab, and again, Redshift isn’t there under the available programs tab.
Sorry to be rude, but did you really read the link @Sven just posted ?
I just tried it and it works. If you had read the doc you would not have used this command sudo apt install redshift, just because you have to install in dom0, and you can’t use sudo apt install in dom0.
In dom0 you have to use sudo qubes-dom0-update redshift etc.
I’d like to add that the linked guide above on how to install redshift says something about creating a startup-script.
What I did and what worked for me was also installing qubes-dom0-update redshift-gtk - this helps in getting a systray icon, which has an “Autostart” option. If it is checked then redshift starts automatically without any additional script.
