Since I was asked.

It's for Mint but should be OK for Debian.

I am the one who marked post 3 as a helpful. One should be cautious adding a ppa for Ubuntu or Mint in vanilla Debian. But to be honest. Aint has not let me know even yet what is being run on his/her gear yet.
Code:
uname -a
?

I have been supportive of this new linux user in another thread here.

I am no spring chicken either so instead of f.lux. To do about the same thing on my gear we covered that here. http://antix.freeforums.org/redshift...ing-t4479.html


As always. Good Luck learning new things AinT.
Happy Trails, Rok

Gratias, rokytnji. Will give that video and link a look-see.

Warning - more ignorance ahead: I don't know what's meant by what's being run on my gear.

I type like I talk. I am a scooter tramp. Click on my name to see what I mean.

Gear=Computer, make, model #, specifications.

being run = Operating System, Desktop environment, based on Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc.............

OK, so I seem to have followed the instructions correctly yesterday. This is what appeared when I tried to install flux yesterday (and again today). (I deleted my hostname and username where they appeared):

Well, if I'm ever in the Lone Star state, waaaay west, perhaps you'll bless me with a mug o' mead!

Dell Latitude D600.

Model #: might that be on the bottom? I'll have to see.
Specifications: Say what now?
OS is Debian.
Desktop environment: ?

I don't know if it's too late or not, but you may wish to install redshift. It's inspired by flux and competitive in feature set. And it's in the main repo already so you don't need to do anything crazy to install it.

The 'worst' part is that you'll have to set some command line options, but those are easy enough to figure out: the quickstart looks something like "redshift -l lat:long" where lat and long are values you fill in after figuring those out, which any number of websites can help you with. For the rest of the options, read the fine documentation.
