redshift-plasma-applet: update patchPhase to fix manual updates, don't use upstream #101279

wants to merge 2 commits into from

@aquarial aquarial commented Oct 21, 2020

Need to patch every redshift to ${redshift }/bin/redshift so
Nix can use the right binary. Current patch misses one.

Upstream applied to add -P to onetime color settings on redshift version >= 1.12

Since nixpkgs uses 1.12, and upstream seems to break manually toggling the applet off, I applied this fix inline in the patches, and took note of it.

I tested this with a local override, and it works on NixOS+KDE

Motivation for this change

Issue #83250 has been a large blocker from me using NixOS more. I finally dove into fix it.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

 -P     Reset existing gamma ramps before applying new color effect.

Add '-P' flag to redshiftOneTimeCommand because it doesn't
work on NixOS if it's not there (?). I'm not sure how it works
on Ubuntu like it is.

I tested this with a local override, and it works on kde.
