I am running redshift, but it crashes everytime i logout, or suspend. I have to run a single command everytime i login. I have tried adding it to .bashrc but it only works when a terminal is opened.

Do yourself a favor and install redshift-gtk

In the UI you will find an option to run it automatically (it uses autostart). On my machine it works almost flawlessly.

After turning that Autostart slider on, it will create a file ~/.config/autostart/redshift-gtk.desktop. You can edit the line that starts with exec to configure various options. For example, for me I have edited that line this way: Exec=redshift-gtk -t 6500:5600

Now it will automatically change color temperature to 5600 during night time.
