I installed Redshift 1.11 on Elementary OS Freya but I noticed that the methods list only mentioned the dummy method (which just displays the target gamma in the terminal).
$ redshift -m list Available adjustment methods: dummy
This makes it kind of useless...
So I cloned the source, ran
./bootstrap and then
./configure. This indicated that it wouldn't have any of the adjustment methods:
Adjustment methods: DRM: no RANDR: no VidMode: no Quartz (OSX): no WinGDI (Windows): no
Above it, it indicated missing dependencies:
checking whether to enable RANDR method... missing dependencies checking whether to enable VidMode method... missing dependencies
The github repo's Hacking docs lists the dependencies:
- libxcb, libxcb-randr (Optional, for RandR support)
- libX11, libXxf86vm (Optional, for VidMode support)
These packages I need for Randr or vidmode are not found though.

I'm not sure how to continue. Does anyone have any tips / leads?
