Had it in several installations and more issues with it than it working properly. The whole idea of connecting this fundamental ability in a OS with a location tracker and preset times rather than providing a simple GUI to leave those settings to the user is bonkers. It might still work, so give it a try, but it would rate it as a non working software. Most common issues were one several instances hindering themselfes or the need to restart the whole OS session, in some cases it just is not working even with time and effort spend to fix it which should not be the case for a good software.
After a long time of use, the app becomes corrupt / broken, and despite there being an Issue page on github, with many, many users commenting their experience with the bug, it is not being updated or fixed in any way. The brightness, gamma, and color temperatue settings can only be changed by opening the configuratin file in text editor, and changing the values there.
Works like a charm. Most desktop managers have the functionality built in these days, but for Cinnamon it's great.
If you activate it by accident, there's no way to revert your screen back to normal until you reboot your computer. Uninstalling it alone doesn't do it. It's harmful software
no way to adjust the red. i quit the little icon and still have red in the screen.. no way to go back now.. not a fan at all..
I would give it 5 except for one irritation. When I use a VPN it locks in to the time zone of the VPN server. I would like it to stick to the time on the clock in the computer
Essential app, love it !
nice app. can arrange via terminal. it s so good
I have a suggestion : add a setting to restore the day rules early in the morning because some people don't receive too much light everyday, so they need full light from their screen. Know that not enough light is bad for mental health. So filtering in the evening is good but only it the person is not in situation of privation., it is good to help to sleep too. So I know no reason to limit the light in the first hours of the day. I am a doctor in medecine to say this. So I think that changing the location of the current place toward the east is part of a solution, diffrent, for that purpose.
If you're looking for a graphical menu, download QRedshift from your Applets menu.
My eyes thank you Redshift!
The program for the preservation of health. It is especially effective for inexpensive laptops with a cheap screen matrix.
Tried them all and the winner is Iris and Iris mini. Not even fair contest when it comes to usability and fast access to bluelight and dimmer.
It's awesome, if you want a smart yellow filter for your eyes look no further. Oh and be sure to use the applet for it.
Great program. Make sure to try the Redshift applet in the applets store if you wish to fine-tune the settings -- no need to create/change a config file. Just use the Applets command from your menu and check the download tab.
Functions perfectly, super-low on resources, able to set both day and night temperatures and brightness, by location, no snoops... What more could anyone want?
Excellent utility. It gradually shifts to a warmer screen around sunrise and sunset. Much better than f.lux (mostly used in Windows environments). I’m very happy with it.
Working as always. Install redshift-gtk for for gui and activate startup.
My eyes thank you!
does what it says it does
