Good afternoon OpenSUSE Community,
**Operating System: openSUSE Leap 15.3
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.6
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.76.0
Qt Version: 5.12.7
Kernel Version: 5.3.18-51-default
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-8665U CPU @ 1.90GHz
Memory: 15.3 GiB of RAM
I’m not sure if this is specific to KDE or if this is related to my use of 15.3 OpenSUSE. I’m planning to load up a 15.2 LEAP and a TW virtual when I get a moment for my lab sandbox to make sure.
In my use, I really enjoy using a tint for my screen use as bright blue computer light tends to give me quick eyestrain (nerdy enough, I double up with Night Color on the box and blue-light reflective glasses :P)
Recently today, I had to **System Settings **and I accidentally clicked Display Configurations in my haste to resolve an issue (the issue was audio not visual… ). After clicking Display Configurations, the Night Color mode reverted to out of the box fresh install. Moving to Night Color configuration within Display Configurations, I saw that Activate Night Color was still checked but the Night Color was still not being activated. I clicked the box and then reactivated the option but the blue light intensive option stayed active while Night Color did not.
Long troubleshooting story short, I found the resolution was:
- Deactivate Night Color mode
- Click Apply
- Activate Night Color mode
- Click Apply
- Don’t go back into Display Configuration unless you want to repeat these steps
What I see as the bug here is that I never deactivated the Night Color mode but going into** Display Configurations** for anything makes it automatically act as if it is deactivated. Also, checking found it was still active but just not being registered. Plus, the resolution was pretty much a system reminder - we are still using this but it’s not being active by deactivating, applying, and then reactivating and applying again.
I wanted to bring this to the community’s attention for help so that I can be educated on how best to go about having this submitted for review; either that be by the OpenSUSE team or KDE for further validation.
Thanks and I hope you are all doing well!
