I installed Redshift through Fedora's software application. Every time I try to make it run it will not. I am a beginner and I'm new to Fedora. Any help would be nice.

Any other info you have? What does it say? Try launching it through the terminal and see what you get out of it.

If you're running KDE: Right click on the panel at the edge of the screen. Select "Panel Options" Select "Add widgets" (or you can use Alt+D,A) This should bring up a list of widgets you can add to your desktop. They're in alphabetical order so, Redshift is down a ways. Select to add Redshift to your desktop. Right-clicking on the widget will let you open Redshift Control Settings. (you can also use Alt+D,S)

There is no need for redshift anymore.

Its functionality has been built into Gnome and is present in both Fedora releases currently supported (26 and 27).

You'll find the corresponding settings under Display settings.

Redshift does not appear to be part of the KDE/Plasma desktop.
