Subject description: auto screen adjustment for time of day
 

http://www.mao-yu.com/projects/redshiftgui/

Quote:
Redshiftgui changes the color temperature of your monitor to better match that of your surrounding. This means that it sets a cooler color temperature during the daytime (due to natural lighting) and sets a warmer temperature at night (due to indoor lighting). Similar to f.lux, this is a GUI port of the redshift project.

Made on Lucid 5.1

Only tested on Puppy Lucid 5 - possibly wont work on other puppies.

I can report that it does work in Saluki 009 with nvidia driver installed, also works with fluppy, this actually works, I never realized that by changing the color temperature reduced eye strain.

Sweet stuff. I suspect this was what i was linked to for Slacko 5.7.0 and it is lovely. The only thing lest is to autostart it. I understand i need to link the executable into the startup folder, so where's the .exe?

If you ask the terminal, "which redshift", you know the systems aware. Then, it's something along these lines..

Use Pfind >> *system* search.. It may be attached as redshift-gui.

Uh, unless you've installed it, it's not there. Here it is, presumably, backwards compatible..

Keep in mind Pup's essentially a rescue disk, not an OS. It doesn't become the latter till it's fattened with libs!

Many thanks to Stu90, & to Pelo, for this.

Stu90, for bringing it to the community's notice in the first place.....and Pelo, for pointing out that the German repository has it, after I found out that Stu90's link is no longer active.

I've been using f.Lux in that other OS for several years.....and it does work; I get a better night's sleep after working with its aid. I've been trying sporadically to make f.Lux work in Puppy; there is a tar.gz available, but it's all command-line, and somewhat confusing, at that.

I'd heard about RedShift, but couldn't find a package, since Stu's link hasn't been active for some time. Thanks for the link to the .pet, Pelo! This thing just works.....and the GUI is SO easy to use, and to set up.

I know some people like an almost instantaneous swap, direct from daylight to night-time. Personally, I prefer a gradual transition, over the course of about 75-90 minutes; so gradual, in fact, that you're not really aware of it. Works for me..!

I can confirm that it runs without issue in Tahrpup 6.03, ETP's 'ChromeBook' Pup, Slacko 5.7.0, and Carolina 1.3.

Cheers, guys!


Mike. Very Happy

Thanks. It works on Fatdog64 too (with 32-bit compat libs), but the font is missing, I guess, so all I can see in the main window is a bunch of controls where little empty squares replace the characters. I'll need to find a screenshot.

Hiya, step.

I've attached screenshots to show what the GUI should look like.....along with the 'Location' & 'Settings' windows.

If you get it working properly, the best thing to do is to go into /usr/bin, locate 'redshiftgui', then open a second Rox window at /root; now go into 'Startup', drag 'redshiftgui' from /usr/bin across to 'Startup', drop, and sym-link back to /usr/bin. (That's Link (absolute), rather than Link (relative)). This will allow Puppy to start it automatically at boot-time.

And once you've set things how you want them and set it to auto-start, you don't need to touch it any more after that. You can left-click on the icon in the taskbar (the little red 'lightbulb'), and it will show you the main GUI (if you want to see what the settings are during transition, for instance); if you do this, click on 'Hide' when you're done - not the 'X' at the top-right, to close the window.....if you do that, you've turned RedShift off, and will need to go back into 'Startup', and click on 'redshiftgui' to start it again.

Or you can access it via 'Menu>System'.

Right-clicking alternates between daylight setting, and nightlight setting.

Try to invoke the app this way:
Code:
start32 redshiftgui

This should fix the font issue.

But there's no point to bother with 32bit version anyway, since you can get x86_64 one here:

Greetings!

Thanks Mike for taking the time to capture screenshots. I've set up the startup links as you recommended.

@SFR, one more trick for me to learn: start32! The 64-bit version has some issues. I test ran ita few times, then suddenly it starts no more with the following message

/usr/bin/redshiftgui: /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4: no version information available (required by /usr/bin/redshiftgui)

I wonder what made it stop working. I'll try again at next reboot.

Unfortunately, I can't really advise with FatDog64.....or with any of the 64-bit Pups. Although I have a 64-bit system, I just prefer the 32-bit Pups.

I've tried FatDog, but....it has a very different way of doing things! I've got so used to the 32-bit Pups, I'll just stick with what I'm used to....

Sorry about that.


Mike. Wink

No problem. I don't think it's a 64-bit issue. I noticed that your pet is version 2.1 from 2010. The x86_64 archive that I downloaded from github is version 2.4 from 2015. Five year's difference is enough to justify new library requirements that lead to that error message. I don't have time to recompile version 2.4 to get rid of the error message. So I think I will stick with your version 2.1 pet and 32-bit compatibility libraries, which I keep loaded anyway to be able to run wine applications. Thanks!

RedshiftGui iis worth to climb again at the top of desktop topics. That is done. Moonlihght shadows or sunrise on your screen will avoid nervous breakdown. It's quite a yoga seance, to relax and stop your linux headache.
