Trying to instal f.lux via PPA on ubuntu 15.04 but says 404 Not Found
I have a ubuntu 15.04.
I follow the instructions :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kilian/f.lux
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fluxgui
Then when I hit sudo apt-get update this is the error message I got :
W: Impossible de récupérer http://ppa.launchpad.net/kilian/f.lux/ubuntu/dists/vivid/main/binary-amd64/Packages 404 Not Found
W: Impossible de récupérer http://ppa.launchpad.net/kilian/f.lux/ubuntu/dists/vivid/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
Somebody can fix this please ?
Same problem there !
Well, I am a Linux noob but I managed to hack my way around to making it work.
The problem is that the app hasn't been updated in a while. The latest seems to be targeting Trusty, which was Ubuntu 14.04. I couldn't figure out how to tell apt to use that old repo, but I did figure out where that info is stored. It's at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and there is a file there named kilian-ubuntu-f_lux-vivid.list. Edit that file to say trusty instead of vivid and try to sudo apt-get install fluxgui again. That should do ya!
Note that there is some funky behavior with flux. Fox example, I could get the "preview" but it would instantly reset to full brightness. I left it along and it finally started working on its own after about 3 or 5 minutes.
I use Ubuntu 14.04, and I was able to install the f.lux for Ubuntu GUI by following @yptrumpet advice. By issuing the following command: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.lists.d/kilian-ubuntu-f_lux-utopic.list (apparently different people have different files in this folder, so I suggest to check what is in the folder so that you can correctly target the file you want to edit), I was able to change the repository searched from utopic to trusty, and voilà, the install worked perfectly.

Yeah, I've used xflux in the command line (and you can set a startup script -- just add a "command" to startup:
xflux -l 00:-00 lat and lon
xflux -l 11:44 uh, what's the setting for the color? I forget, but when you put it in, it works fine, there is just no slow transition.
A user in GitHub has a new repository and it works with my Ubuntu 15.10
