In Windows 10 under Settings app, System, Night LIght settings, there is a slider that allows fine tuning adjustments of the blue light filter.
I’ve tried Redshift and also some kind of under deal with it ( I don’t remember at this moment what it was), but I could never get it ( be it Ubuntu 18.04 vanilla, mate, or Mint 19 cinnamon 64 bit) to go anywhere in between…off and ultra freaking redish orange…too damn red and orange.
Please help? I have no problem uninstalling whatever to follow your experienced and proven true instructions. Thank you
I didn’t even know there was a config file ( facepalm). After reading your comment and doing some further search though, I stumbled across this
Paul Chris Jones’s idea ( which seems like just typing without quotes redshift -O whatevernumber" and it might give me precisely what I want. Then I think perhaps I could add that as a custom command to autorun when I boot into my Mint destkop.
I run redshift on mint. You can put all the parameters you want in the command-line arguments, but if you want to turn it off and on again later (to play a game, watch a movie, whatever…), you’ll have to remember all the options. It’s a lot easier to put your preferred defaults in the config file imo, you just have to type redshift in the cli or run the gtk widget.
There are other options—you can change the gamma and hardcode your location iirc. Probably all possible options work as command-line args as well, but a config file makes more sense.
I just added redshift-gtk as a startup item with a delay of a few seconds. I think the location service bombs out sometimes if you run it immediately after logging in, and it doesn’t work for the login screen.
