f.lux screen temp adjustment

It’s been a while since I have posted here, but I thought it best to pick it up again 🙂

A few weeks ago I found this website that adjusts your screen temp to accommodate the time of day. Here is a quick description below:

f.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

It’s even possible that you’re staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

Just to clarify this does work on Ubuntu / Raring, I’ve also installed it to my Windows and random laptops around the home. When working  late night, your eyes don’t feel like they are being burned out of your head from staring at the computer screen.

Try it out!

    I used to use redshift for this purpose, but it was tinting my display to the point of distraction. Is this more of a subtle shift or are you staring into a red alert beacon until you go to bed? 🙂

      So the other night, flux was eating up 99% of the cpu. Great! :-/. Rather than constantly babysitting flux, I decided to give redshift a try last night. The transition with flux is more subtle than redshift, Although redshift has the option to set a config file in ~/home/user/.config/redshift.conf you can actually adjust the color temp to your liking

      [redshift]
      temp-day=5700
      temp-night=4900
      transition=1
      gamma=0.8:0.7:0.8
      location-provider=manual
      adjustment-method=vidmode

      Last night I switched to redshift and found this method to configure it, I’ll give this a try for a while. See how it holds up.
