Subject description: sct is easier to use compared to redshift
 

Usage: sct [temperature]
Temperatures must be in a range from 1000-10000
If no arguments are passed sct resets the display to the default temperature (6500K)
If -h is passed sct will display this usage information



All you have to do is download sct from repositories and usage is as simple as :
sct 3600 (or whatever value between 1000 and 10 000)
Enter sct to reset.

Subject description: AppImage for 32 & 64-bit Linux systems
 

To get your copy of Desktop-Dimmer : https://github.com/sidneys/desktop-dimmer/releases

Deb files for 32 & 64-bit Linux systems available as well.

As the app's name suggests, it is to be used at night, a dim light being better for your eyes.

Comment :
i have executed desktop-dimmer on Xenial (16.04) and on Bionic (18.04).
64-bit AppImage is ok on my Xenial installation, but not on my Bionic one (32-bit).
Developer says : Tested on macOS Sierra, Windows 10 Anniversary. Beta support for Ubuntu 16.10.

If you have installed a deb file, and it does not work properly, to remove it :
#apt remove --purge desktop-dimmer and #apt autoremove for any leftovers and dependencies.
If you have executed an AppImage, and it does not work properly, there is nothing to uninstall.

I installed redshift (no GUI version), and use these in my ~/.bashrc:

Code:

alias dayscreen='redshift -O 5500K'
alias nightscreen='redshift -O 3400K'



I don't yet have a nice function to gradually change the screen temp over time, but will write one at some point... Unless someone has already done it, and wants to post it here...?

Subject description: Firefox addon
 

Night Eye enables dark mode on pretty much all websites - Facebook, Google, Quora, Github, Stackoverflow, Wikipedia and much more.
Instead of simply inverting, the extension analyses the pages’ colors and images and converts them to improve your browsing experience.

The extension allows you to quickly switch between the three available modes

- Dark - Go into complete dark mode. All colors, small images and icons will be converted to give you the smoothest dark experience possible.

- Filtered - The websites' colors will not be changed, but you can still adjust brightness, contrast, warmth and more.

- Normal - Get back to the normal browsing experience.

To get your copy of Night Eye : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/night-eye-dark-mode/
