Gnome Night Light doesn't work unless I switch virtual consoles

Night Light doesn't change color tone unless I change to another virtual console, and then back again to Gnome. Also when starting Nvidia X Server Settings, the red tone is gone again, so I suspect it has something to do with the Nvidia driver. Was wondering if anyone else has run into this problem? Can't seem to find anything through Google.

Gnome 3.24.2 - Nvidia drivers 381.22 (GTX 980)

I also have this problem- thanks for the tip about switching consoles, I never would have tried that.

I am running the intel driver so it's not an Nvidia thing.

Problem just started after I upgraded to 4.11.9-1 tonight.

It's worth mentioning that I do not do frequent upgrades-- I am not certain it was running before-- it may not have worked since 4.10.10-1 actually.

Re: Gnome Night Light doesn't work unless I switch virtual consoles

I have the same problem when launching nvidia settings. Had it since the Gnome version with night light came to Arch.
I also was wondering why nobody mentions this bug.

But i don't have any problems with console switching.

Re: Gnome Night Light doesn't work unless I switch virtual consoles

Having this issue also. Night light previously worked fine but today I noticed that it has stopped working.

After booting the color looks as if night light was disabled even though it's enabled, and disabling/enabling it doesn't make any difference. Same thing if I start Redshift. It says that color temperature is being changed etc, but no visible change can be seen. After switching to a virtual console and then back again both night light and Redshift works as expected. Starting Nvidia settings also breaks night light but disabling/enabling it works in this case.
