RedShift Erroring on System Start

Hello.

I'm trying to figure out why everytime I restart my computer the redshift-wayland-git errors out and I have to relaunch it.

During the launch of the sway session I get a pop up from redshift and the last line is os_create_anonymous_file: Invalid argument

I have searched across the different redshift-wayland-git tickets but I haven't seen anything that matches this.

I did find this discussion about Sway 1.5 and redshift but supposedly this ticket was fixed and closed. Broken Under Sway 1.5

Anyone have suggestions that I should try?

Should I switch to gammastep? I see there is a wlsunset script in ~/.config/sway/scripts called light.sh. Is that something that is production ready?

first remove redshift-wayland-git
then install wlsunset
I use wlsunset according to my eyes like this :

wlsunset -t 2200 -T 2300

I am using stacer so I had did this:

but if you don't always reload configs through mod+shift+c
then you can directly paste it here : ~/.config/sway/config

Yes light.sh is working in background.
Oops I forgot one step ,
there is a script at ~/.config/sway/config.d/
which is autostart_applications
in that script at line 24 there will be written :

exec ~/.config/sway/scripts/light.sh

make it commented like this

#exec ~/.config/sway/scripts/light.sh

and then try the solution

then it will surely run, if there is any error then please tell me
You can directly configure light.sh but it will take a lot of time (specially for me as I am not a programmer) so I didn't tried to do that .
