What's a good red shift app?


Hi Qties!

Just installed LXQt yesterday on my ASUS SONIC MASTER laptop with Debian Buster Stable & noticed Red Shift doesn’t work at all.

Any compatible blue-blocking/red shift type apps or plugins?

LXQt has no specific plugin for redshift and it doesn’t need any. redshift is independent of DE. So, I think if you configure it correctly, it should work everywhere. It’s explained in different “wikis”; for example, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Redshift for Arch-based systems and https://wiki.debian.org/Redshift for Debian (Arch’s Wiki is usually more up-to-date and can be used by advanced Debian users after some changes – and it’s important to know which changes).

I’m not that cynical, but hey - what about nano or vi - just to write a few timers, at’s or just cron jobs - and in debian the package is called redshift

ok, i don’t really like the shifted temperature, so a simple desktop file at users login might really be sufficient

There exist redshift-qt

Which uses redshiift and have the same limitation that doesn’t work w/o interenet connection because it use geoclue (a nice addition would be to store the last location). I’m trying to package it for debian, in the meantime here is my ubuntu ppa https://launchpad.net/~hmollercl/+archive/ubuntu/redshift-qt


There is an example file on the Redshift website about halfway down the page:


You can manually set your latitude and longitude. You can also adjust the color temperatures for day and night to suit your needs. You may want to adjust or comment out the last part concerning which screens are affected by Redshift.

sorry, I was refering to the same limitation as redshift-gtk.
