Nightmode

Description:

Nightmode is a kwin plugin that makes the entire screen darker. The reason behind this for when you are using the laptop at night, either outside or in bed - and find that even on the darkest screen backlight level the screen is way too bright.

The plugin can be turned on or off by a simple key combination, and the amount of dimming can be configured.

If you're on Ubuntu, just follow the ubuntu package links.

Otherwise:

download source
extract

run the following

cd nightmode
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
make
sudo make install

 Kudos and feature request

This is a really useful plugin, at least for me. I'm an amateur astronomer and I always look for ways to preserve my night vision, and your plugin was what I was looking for.

Can you add a feature to add a custom tint (I'd like red, for night vision) when nightmode is on?

It would be really fantastic if we could get features similar to Nocturne app for Mac Os X:
http://docs.blacktree.com/nocturne/nocturne
I used it on my Macbook Pro and loved it (but alway prefer GNU/Linux on Mac Os X).

Doing these features is a lot more work, kwin has some conveneience functions for setting brightness and saturation. For colour shifting I'd have to do some actual work.

I've got a few projects on the go at the moment, but I'll try and at least have a go - any advice/hints/help from anyone would be appreciated.

I'm back from a couple of nights of astrophotography with my laptop, and I can confirm that your plugin is really useful to preserve night vision.
I partially solved the color problem choosing the aya plasma theme and setting a dark and red-based color theme.

Thanks for your work! :-)

 problem with new kde

it seem that this effect doesn't work without libkwineffects1, eve if libkwineffects1a is installed on ma kubuntu 10.04

compiling from source gives error:

It appears more likely to me that you don't have kdebase-workspace-dev installed.

pro tip: any error about "foobar.h" when compiling probably means you're missing a "-dev" package (which contains the header files needed for compilation but not for running)

"apt-file search foobar.h" is quite good for telling you which ones.

Edit: sorry misread your first comment.

the kwineffects1 vs 1a is the reason the debian package doesn't work.

the deb package needs rebuilding against the newer lib. I hate building packages, and have no idea how to fix it. Pester srog, he's got the skills.

This is an incedible useful KWin plugin, KDE SC should ships it as default, best!

 KDE SC 4.5.1 compatibility

Hi,

Your plugin stopped working when I upgraded to KDE 4.5.X. It was running fine on 4.4.X.

Is this just my configuration or is there an incompatibility with 4.5?

I totally love your plugin. I have an external screen attached and while I can control the laptop with software your plugin allows me to just 'dim it down' at night which is so much easier on the eyes.

There is a binary incompatibility. i.e the code stays the same, but it needs to be compiled again against KDE4.5

Thank you, that worked beautifully. I'll try to get it into the arch user repo but don't know how to package yet :-(.
I'll report back once I found out.

 Source code disappeared

Hello. I have been using your nightmode desktop effect for a while now, and it is an exceptionally useful plugin.

However, the source code link is not working now. Also the link from kde-apps.org is broken.

What happened? Can you put it back?

I updated my personal website, and forgot to update everything that links to it.

Sorry! Fixed now.

Thanks for your quick response!

For reference, here is the gentoo bug report containing the Gentoo ebuild responsible for bringing your nice plugin on my machines.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
