Install flux on linux mint 18
I am unable to add PPA. it gives the below error.
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kilian/f.lux
'This PPA does not support xenial'
Cannot add PPA: ''This PPA does not support xenial''.
What needs to be done?
@occasionalVisitor I've never seen that error before! Use the xflux zip file on the page, below the white text boxes. That works much better.
@Tungsten_smooth How to install it?
xflux daemon (command line, but for X-Windows)
A 64-bit version with multiple monitor support is available here: xflux64.tgz
A 32-bit build with support for multiple monitors is available here: xflux-pre.tgz
Download one of those two files. Then, you will want to extract that, like a zip folder. So right click the downloaded folder and click "Extract here" or if you're on KDE choose "Extract to folder "xflux-pre"".
Then, drag the xflux file inside the new folder, into a terminal. Or do cd ./home/downloads/xflux-pre/ or something like that to get into the folder.
Then do xflux -h
xflux -l -80:50 -k 2300 is a place to start.
