redshift apparmor settings not quite correct

Bug #1926919 reported by StoatWblr on 2021-05-02

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
redshift (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

redshift isn't starting because apparmor is blocking it from starting.

(DENIED opening ~/.config/redshift/redshift.conf mask r)

it worked ok in 20.10 and 20.04

This looks like a security oversight

There are a couple other apparmor oversights showing in dmesg (cups-browsed, ntpd)
