Owner and main writer of MintGuide.org is not a native English speaker.

After installation and activation, color temperature is determined depending on the time of day. Night and day use different color temperature. During the sunset and early morning color temperature smooth transition from the settings for the night to day options, allowing his eyes to adapt gradually, which greatly relieves the strain on the eyesight.

Install Redshift. Do not neglect your vision, if you are long at the computer monitor.


Installation into Linux Mint/PinguyOS/ElementaryOS or others Ubuntu distrs:

Linux terminal: ~$sudo apt-get install gtk-redshift[/code]


In order Redshift correctly chosen and regulate the color temperature, it is necessary first of all to find the coordinates of your location. To find the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of your city (district), there are many ways, but the easiest is in a search engine (Google, Yandex, etc) to enter the Coordinates, New York, USA (example) and set the search. When coordinates are found they must be inserted in the following command instead of those that are highlighted in red (it coordinates my country):

Linux terminal: ~$gtk-redshift -l 68:33 -t 5500:4500[/code]
