Configuration file for redshift and gtk-redshift
A configuration file with the name `redshift.conf' can optionally be placed in `~/.config/'. The file has standard INI format. General program options are placed under the `redshift' header, while options for location providers and adjustment methods are placed under a header with the name of that provider or method. General options are:
temp-day = integer
temp-night = integer
transition = 0 or 1
Disable or enable transitions
brightness-day = 0.1-1.0
Screen brightness at daytime
brightness-night = 0.1-1.0
Screen brightness at night
gamma = R:G:B
Gamma adjustment to apply
adjustment-method = name
Select adjustment method. Options for the adjustment method can be given under the configuration file heading of the same name.
location-provider = name
Select location provider. Options for the location provider can be given under the configuration file heading of the same name.
Options for location providers and adjustment methods can be found in the help output of the providers and methods.
Example for Copenhagen, Denmark:
$ redshift -l 55.7:12.6 -t 5700:3600 -g 0.8 -m vidmode -v
An example configuration file with the same effect as the above command line:
[redshift] temp-day=5700 temp-night=3600 gamma=0.8 adjustment-method=vidmode location-provider=manual
