According to Wiki:

...redshift.service should start only after the DM, preventing the "Initialization of randr failed". However, that is not the case with me. I'm using LightDM and Xfce and have enabled the redshift.service as instructed. Still, redshift.service fires too early, preventing the redshift to start. It works as expected if I manually start the service later.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 1.12-5

Steps to reproduce:
1. "systemctl --user enable redshift.service"
2. restart
3. observe "journalctl --user -u redshift.service" to confirm success or failure to start
This task depends upon

The wiki says that redshift.service uses After=display-manager.service, but that's no longer accurate. See:
