    Question Eye Strain

    I can really suffer with eye strain when on laptop for what amounts to be far too long!

    Anyone install SafeEyes? I have it installed on my Debian based tower & would like to install under Tumbleweed but can only find instructions for Fedora. This ia RPM based but will it be sufficient?

    Hi
    What about redshift? Let's see if can put together a test build for you.

    I have Redshift but SafeEyes steps in to give you regular eye exercises at recommended intervals.

    Hi
    Building here;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...STING/SafeEyes

    Should be down in here after building.
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...leweed/noarch/

    Now you need to get three files from the multimedia:libs repo
    - mpg123
    - libmpg123
    - libout123

    There is also a dependency on some xorg utilities... not sure which ones yet, but if something shows up, bump this thread and will locate (openSUSE split them all out...).

    Cool Re: Eye Strain

    Thanks so very much.

    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...timedia:/libs/ repo will not add via YaST, maybe I have wrong syntax?

    Hi
    I wouldn't add the repo, just grab the three files and manually install as it may pull in other packages which don't want.....

    Or add the repo and install those three files only and disable the repo... What is needed is for it to be pushed to factory...

    Sorry, no experience with SafeEyes, but it looks like you have some top-level help in this thread, already.

    Just wanted to add the comment that I have been using the time-honoured tradition of stopping once every hour, getting up from the PC for a 10 minute break, not just for eyes but for physical health, for decades.

    Currently, my eye-strain, physical strain moderator is kOrganizer.

    Hi
    Getting up.... I've been standing at my computers for a number of years now... feels funny sitting down in front of a computer...

    Hehe.

    Easy for you to say, you are so much younger! Also, sometimes it gets a bit testy standing up since I shattered my ankle.
