Blue Light filter programs
« on: September 12, 2020, 09:38 AM »
I am looking for good Blue Light Filter free programs.
I want some small, with some way to config color temperature and brightness :P

f.lux probably the best known, is a good one, howevere at every start this shows a window to enter my location (zip code)

NightLight by D-Ermis is another really small and good, however haven't options to change settings, the filter is not applied to the mouse cursor.

redshift looks very good
RedshiftGUI this is small, have smooth transition and we can configure brightness too.
Redshift Tray this looks very good too, with more options, however nothing seems to work here. Am I doing something wrong or maybe it is broken in Windows?

the settings for redshift tray are:
[Values]
latitude=9.566700
longitude=-69.216700
daytemp=4500
nighttemp=3500
brightness=1
fullscreentemp=6500
pauseminutes=10
daytime=0600
nighttime=1800
[Switches]
colorizecursor=1
customtimes=1
keepbrightness=0
fullscreenmode=0
nofading=1
hotkeys=1
extrahotkeys=0
keepcalibration=0
remotedesktop=0
rdpnumlock=0
runasadmin=1
startdisabled=0
traveling=0

Dim Screen?  I use a Smart TV as computer monitor, would that not turn into just a TV?   :P

I am really appreciating blue light filter for my daily work.
I already tried following programms:

Iris mini https://iristech.co/iris-mini/
Light Bulb https://github.com/Tyrrrz/LightBulb
Eye Saver http://www.eye-saver.net/

I liked f.lux and redshift the most. They automatically adjust und i liked the color temperature.
