Run f.lux on a Pi? Probably not...

Tue Jul 05, 2016 9:01 pm

Is there a way to run f.lux on a Pi (B+)? The reason being, I once tried, but couldn't get it to work. It's probably not feasible, but I just wanted to see what others thought...

I know I use too many parentheses. Problem?

You have been a worthy opponent, FlexibleSigmoid.
Probably should have just left it like that instead of saying this... although then I couldn't put this in tiny text at the bottom of this post, like this:

Hello World :-) ran into a problem and needs to reboot. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll reboot for you. (∞% Complete)
Note the use of the word reboot instead of restart, because we love Linux.

The error code, in case you need it, is .HSIUGNITXE DNA DNETXE ,ECARBME

Disclaimer: I run on Linux. This is just my distro's (Hello World :-) OS 16.7) kernel panic screen.

From Wikipedia
f.lux is a proprietary computer program...
I see no source code on the homepage either.

Strange, because I remember seeing a link to the source last time I visited it... maybe I didn't remember correctly.
If that is indeed the case, I need to find, or try to program (note the use of "try" because I will fail) an alternative.
Challenge Accepted. http://bit.ly/29ylulS

There is an alternative called redshift , but since the Raspberry
Pi does not support online gamma correction it doesn't work.
Perhaps it's just a job of writing an Xorg driver which
exposes existing GPU functionality or it might be that this
functionality just doesn't exist on the Pi.

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

It only really needs to exist inside of Openbox (LXDE-pi), so I was thinking some kind of overlay (maybe an always-on-top full-screen transparent but tinted window with no title bar that you can click things through, but that's probably impossible)
