Crash report on first login maybe fixed by manual masking of RedShift service for LightDM greeter and its user:

sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/lightdm/.config/systemd/user
sudo ln -sf /dev/null /var/lib/lightdm/.config/systemd/user/redshift.service
sudo ln -sf /dev/null /var/lib/lightdm/.config/systemd/user/redshift-gtk.service
sudo chown -R lightdm: /var/lib/lightdm/.config

and then reboot.

Startup for current user maybe disabled by normal usual way:

systemctl --user mask redshift.service redshift-gtk.service

And then user can add `redshift-gtk` to Startup Applications (mate-session-properties).
