algent that guy reported it, but mentioned he solved it by rebuilding himself. that's over my head.
Can anyone replicate by launching redshift?
The warning tells me to go to redshift FAQ--
"Why does GeoClue fail with access denied error?
It is possible that the location services have been disabled completely. The check for this case varies by desktop environment. For example, in GNOME the location services can be toggled in Settings > Privacy > Location Services.
If this is not the case, it is possible that Redshift has been improperly installed or not been given the required permissions to obtain location updates from a system administrator."
