    Default How Do I Install f.lux?

    I am using openSUSE 13.1, 64-bit, with KDE.

    f.lux is available here: https://justgetflux.com/
    How do I install it? I see instructions for Ubuntu but nothing for openSUSE...

    You mean this?

    https://justgetflux.com/linux.html

    The last update to the page was on 2010, and they were planing packages
    for other versions. I guess they did not and abandoned.

    The sources are here:

    https://github.com/Kilian/f.lux-indicator-applet

    and many files are old. It appears to be python. But that is only an
    indicator, you apparently need a daemon, too. This one is binary only,
    no sources. I would not use it.

    One alternative for linux is redshift (http://jonls.dk/redshift/).
    Have used it in the past, it is similar to f.lux. Personally though I
    do not get the appeal of changing the monitor colors at certain times
    of the day but to each their own.

    You are using PGP on the forum, via nntp. Web users will not be able to
    make use of it; may confuse them, in fact. You should disable it here.


    Also, you are using your gmail address. In this forum it is preferable
    to use:

    [CODE]
    "Alias or real name" <openSUSE_login@no-mx.forums.opensuse.org>
    [CODE]

    and your posts via nntp will be listed under the same identity you via
    web side. Makes easier to find your posts, and they can contact you via PM.

    Possibly Thunderbird automatically added the PGP signature because it is
    the default for your gmail identity.

    I think the account was setup like that, not sure why its using my gmail.

    Yep, it did. The thing is it has an identity for the nntp stuff but its
    using my gmail now for some strange reason. Maybe I configured it wrong :S

    Should be fixed now, thanks for the heads up Carlos.

    Maybe you hit on reply instead of followup? It switches to email mode.

    Welcome. Yes, this one was sent correctly.


    Another curiosity is that, when I sent the previous reply, Thunderbird
    wanted to PGP sign my post, and complained that it could not find a
    matching signature to my @no-mx.forums.opensuse.org address. I then
    tried to tell it "not sign", and it refused on the grounds of pgp not
    being configured for this identity...

    So I had to enable pgp on the identity, then disable signing and
    encrypting by default, then disable on that post.

    And when sending the next post it wanted or offered to sign, so I had to
    again configure to disable pgp for the identity... I think it also
    complained about a key before saving a draft.

    This is so after the recent changes to enigmail...
