Do you plan to develop any blulight filter a.k.a. "Night mode"?

    It's easier to reach the developers either through Launchpad (where the actual development happens) or via the subreddit, StackExchange is really meant to be for Q&A style support.

  • Thank for warning. I'll be more careful next time Commented Jan 29, 2017 at 8:53

You might want to look at the package redshift (universe packages) or fluxgui (in the PPA: https://launchpad.net/~nathan-renniewaldock/+archive/ubuntu/flux)

    If you use Redshift then I can recommend also installing this elementary-style indicator icon for redshift-gtk - the original one looks very out of place. gist.github.com/tobias-kuendig/d055892720cf09ae1a9d82075fb0f408

  • I just installed Redshift in AppCenter which I think is already elementary-style and pretty good for me.

f.lux is more reliable than Redshift and has a wing panel icon to easily adjust the color and pause it.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/flux
sudo apt update
sudo apt install fluxgui

This will be in elementary OS Juno 5.0 without the need for any thirdparty software.



f.lux apparently currently does not support monitors with high colour depth. Redshift does. Redshift also seems more happy with dealing with multiple different multiple monitor set ups. As a result I have had to move from f.lux to Redshift after quite a few years happy usage for I hope they continue to develop it.
