I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

All PC users know that the vision should be protected. Children need to limit the time that a child spends at the monitor. For users of older need to do exercises for the eyes, frequent breaks in the work for the PC. But sometimes you may need computer help in the form of a useful and effective software. We will focus on the desired program called f.lux.

The program changes the color profile of the monitor depending on the time of day. At night our eyes are less tired from the warm color (2700 K), and in the daytime from cold tones (6500 K), which are more consistent with the daylight. If easier, the date the monitor is operating normally, and in the dark, the brightness of the monitor is muted.

 

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kilian/f.lux
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fluxgui

When the utility starts, it will appear in the system tray.
