Subject description: I am in desparate need of a color temperature adjustment of screen for eye saving.
 

I work on pc for many hours a day and I don't have special eye glasses or special monitor to help my cornea to avoid eye-sight problems. I have tried installing f.lux for linux in lucid puppy 5.8 but it doesn't seem to work as the f.lux instructions on https://justgetflux.com/linux.html are for 'ubuntu sudo' or something. Is there a program or script that i can install in puppy for this purpose. I use xorg driver for my graphics and my system is frugal install on hard disk. I have tried redshift gui.pet but it doesn't work at all. The light bulb that I have in my room is an incandescent light bulb. Thanks.

Hello wert,

You can find and download the guy's packages (lucid version .deb and source appears to be among them) via a browser at launchpad.net by searching for his name:-
https://launchpad.net/~kilian/+archive/ubuntu/f.lux/+packages
The GUI program uses Python which I know almost nothing about and it looks like you might need python-pexpect as a dependency. You should be able to get this (lucid version) from packages.ubuntu.com but I have no idea if it can be made to work.

What I did do was download the xflux 32 bit binary from the page you gave.
Change the ownership to root:root and you can also strip --strip-unneeded
Place it in /usr/bin and then you can start it from terminal.
It requires a location, zip code or latitude and longitude and you can specify a colour temperature or leave that out and use the default.
Once started it runs in the background as a daemon and dims the monitor during the night hours so you could use a script in /root/Startup
For me it works if I do
Code:
xflux -l 51.0N -g 00.0 -k 3200
not sure if the "N" has any effect, it does work without it but North or South should be significant. If you are in the USA you can use a zip code instead it seems.

Someone more experienced than me would be able to make a simple GUI for this using GTKdialog or something but maybe this is not essential.
