We wrote a
dim command that allows you to easily change the brightness of the screen:
The above command sets the brightness to 80%.
Our script just calls the
redshift command shown here:
redshift -o -l 0:0 -b 0.8 -t 6500:6500
which also sets the brightness to 80% (the
-b option). Try
redshift -h to see other options.
To just change the color/temperature, use the capital O option:
redshift -O 3000
3000 is a lower temperature (redder). Values from 3000-6500 are typically used (higher value means more blue light).
If you like the other options, you can make an alias for your command and put it in your
alias mydim='redshift -o -l 0:0 -b 0.8 -t 6500:5500'
Then just type
mydim in a terminal window and it will run that full command.
