Rory mentioned this at the Chrimbo meal and I thought I'd give it a go. 
  It's a wee tool that adjusts the colour temperature of the screen via 
xrandr to better match daylight and (maybe) result in less eye-strain. 
Or just for geeky creds.

If you are using Ubuntu 12.10 (or anything derived from that I guess) 
there is a bit of a bug and it won't start (some issue with geoclue - 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/geoclue/+bug/1060645 )

But you can start it by just banging in long:lat like this:
	redshift -l 5.9:-1.1

gtk-redshift can be started the same way

Those values are approximate for Nottingham.
