Re: Redshift

I've tried it in the past, and just tried it again now; I'm a fan of warm colors, but for some reason I find it easier to use my monitor at its standard 6500K color temperature.  It's a good utility for people who find lower temperatures easier on the eyes.

Re: Redshift

@pvsage
Thanks for the feedback.
I am an ageing shift worker and I find a warmer colour temp easier on the eyes sometimes.
The cool point about this app is that it adjusts during the day depending on your lat/long...so your not always in a 'red' shift  wink

Cheers from Luxembourg.

Re: Redshift

Yep, I use it. It's one of my favourite apps.

Re: Redshift

I'm trying to install redshift 1.8, however when I enter

./configure

It encounters this two error

./configure: line 5969: syntax error near unexpected token `X11,'
./configure: line 5969: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(X11, x11, have_x11=yes, have_x11=no)'

Google does not show anything fruitful. I believe this is saying that it's missing x11, however, Crunchbang should have x11 already, no?

Can you tell me how to go around this?

Re: Redshift

Redshift will run with the terminal command;

redshift

or

redshift-gtk

...if you want the toolbar icon.

Redshift is not packaged with a default 'redshift.conf'

copy this one from the redshift site;

; Global settings for redshift
[redshift]
; Set the day and night screen temperatures
temp-day=5700
temp-night=3500

; Enable/Disable a smooth transition between day and night
; 0 will cause a direct change from day to night screen temperature. 
; 1 will gradually increase or decrease the screen temperature
transition=1

; Set the screen brightness. Default is 1.0
;brightness=0.9
; It is also possible to use different settings for day and night since version 1.8.
;brightness-day=0.7
;brightness-night=0.4
; Set the screen gamma (for all colors, or each color channel individually)
gamma=0.8
;gamma=0.8:0.7:0.8

; Set the location-provider: 'geoclue', 'gnome-clock', 'manual'
; type 'redshift -l list' to see possible values
; The location provider settings are in a different section.
location-provider=manual

; Set the adjustment-method: 'randr', 'vidmode'
; type 'redshift -m list' to see all possible values
; 'randr' is the preferred method, 'vidmode' is an older API
; but works in some cases when 'randr' does not.
; The adjustment method settings are in a different section.
adjustment-method=vidmode

; Configuration of the location-provider:
; type 'redshift -l PROVIDER:help' to see the settings
; ex: 'redshift -l manual:help'
[manual]
lat=48.1
lon=11.6

; Configuration of the adjustment-method
; type 'redshift -m METHOD:help' to see the settings
; ex: 'redshift -m randr:help'
; In this example, vidmode is configured to adjust screen 1. 
; Note that the numbering starts from 0, so this is actually the second screen.
[vidmode]
screen=1

and edit your geo latitude and longitude.
...also don't forget to change screen to '0' if you only have one monitor.

place 'redshift.conf' in ~/.config folder

hope this helps...

Re: Redshift

#! doesn't include dev libraries by default. Did you see the part in the reddit instructions where he installs them?

sudo apt-get install libxcb1-dev libxcb-randr0-dev libx11-dev

Try installing the libraries and then ./configure again.

I have to ask though, is there some feature in redshift 1.8 you know you need, or do you just think you want the latest version?

Re: Redshift

In redshift.conf;

temp-day=5700
temp-night=3500

Increase the temp-night figure for less red.  wink

Re: Redshift

I've had redshift in my autostart file for some time, although I never knew about the GTK version with the ssystem tray icon before I saw this thread, so I just changed that line to:

gtk-redshift -l 23.0000:-102.0000 &

(I have now given away my longitude and latitude; please don't send me any missiles.)

Re: Redshift

Very cool. I had heard of f.lux for Windows and have an app on my Nexus 7 which provides similar functionality. I like it, thanks for sharing.

Re: Redshift

i have put gtk-redshift in tint2 like that :

clock_lclick_command = gsimplecal
clock_rclick_command = gtk-redshift -l 33.578456:-7.606636 -t 6500K:3700K -g 0.8

it works like a charm
