Does "DimScreen" work under GNU/Linux?
« on: February 10, 2014, 06:38 PM »
Hi forum. Nice to meet you.

I use DimScreen v1.1 in windows xp a long time. It's Great: https://www.donation...index.html#DimScreen

I wonder, Is there a version for GNU/Linux distros? Maybe, in .rpm or .deb package?
Or similar solution for gnu/linux OS?

The AHK source (DimScreen.ahk) is available, but unfortunately, there is no AHK for Linux, as far as I know, or at least nothing that can run an AHK script. It's kind of a Windows only thing.

Although in some cases, with limited success, a compiled AHK script (.exe) can be run with WINE. It really depends on what it does. I don't think in this case that it would work out very well (although I could be wrong).

Virtually every Linux distro has a dockable screen brightness control. Look under whatever controls your settings. "Screen Lock & Brightness" or "Display" if it isn't a separte setting.
