QRedshift is a really great applet! Thank you so much for it! Unfortunately it works only on one monitor for me. When I enter e.g. "redshift -O 3500 -b 0.8" in the normal command-line, both monitors are redshifted and darker. But with the applet only one. I'm using Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon with two 4K-monitors from LG. Connected by Displayport-Cables. My graphics-card is Intel UHD Graphics 630. I really hope, you can fix that. Thank you!

It's great applet! Really helps during work at evening and night. Unfortunately I'm unable to launch applet since last it's update (I guess from 1.4 to 1.5) - only got message "Something went wrong while loading, report issue to its developer". I'm using Linux Mint 19.3 with Cinnamon 4.4.8.

I tested here, with 4.4.8 and is all working fine. Try delete the config files.

It's a must have app! Especially if you want to use the laptop in bed with low lighting. Unfortunatelly it stopped working after mint upgrade to 19.3 Cinnamon 4.4.5

It's apparently just a version compatibility issue. I just edited the json with the metadata to include cinnamon 4.4. The applet utility still has a notification saying that this app "contains function calls that could potentially cause cinnamon to crash", but runs fine for now.

Good to know! That message is normal.

Work great and, yes, the icon it's a lot bigger than the icons of other applets.

This applet is awesome, thanks. I'd just like to request, if possible, to implement scaling to the icon. It's a lot bigger than the icons of other applets and I didn't found a way to resize it (the options in panel settings resize the other applets but not QRedshift).

Fixed on version 1.4.
