redshift fails with Geolocation disabled for UID 1000

Installed redshift on my Arch box today but it kept failing with “Geolocation disabled for UID 1000”. This is a bug which will be fixed in a new release but till then here’s an easy work around.

Add the lines below to the /etc/geoclue/geoclue.conf file and restart gnome.
