This loop goes to infinity:
I set the brightness to decrease (0.6) but Redshift does not believe 0.6 is a number between 0.1 and 1.0.
Code: Select all
$ redshift -b -v DAY 0.6 Trying location provider `geoclue2'... Using provider `geoclue2'. Brightness values must be between 0.1 and 1.0. $ redshift -p Trying location provider `geoclue2'... Using provider `geoclue2'. Period: Daytime Color temperature: 5500K Brightness: 1.00
It reverts to 1.0.
"redshift -b -v DAY 0.6" is the correct command if I understand redshift --help (I like EVERYTHING verbose BTW if I can get it).
Saw other distro blogs that say to edit the .conf file or create a brightness.sh script.
I wanted to get DEV opinion(s) before trying this on my own.
Thank you for any answer and have a great weekend, Brent
EDIT/WONDERFUL! Now night has fallen in the desert. Redshift has toned it down to muted pinks and dimmed the whites. It's quite amazing....Solus Project's own Nightlight does this in muted orange and it feels like Halloween (no offense Solus, it IS easier on the eyeballs which was your goal). But Redshift must be adjusting gamma or backlight.
For some mysterious reason redshift -p still shows Brightness at max: 1.0
Question remains: how do I tone it down in the DAY? The terminal -help commands aren't working for me.
Thank you, and thanks for packaging--this is good software. Need to dial down this overly-bright Acer for the daytime.
