Auto-adjusts monitor brightness based on your location and day time. Uses Flux or Redshift.
F.lux: http://stereopsis.com/flux/
Redshift: http://jonls.dk/redshift/


2011-08-23: Minor changes to the process management.
2011-08-02: Now gets default latitude and longitude values from KDE, and when the applet is destroyed it stops redshift/xflux. Also, the default temperature values now match redshift defaults. Thanks to meegee: https://github.com/meegee
2011-07-09: Now, when status is unknown, clicking on the plasmoid tries to relaunch the program after killing redundant processes.
2011-06-28: More robust error detection and bug reports.
2011-06-27: Fixed bug that happened when more than one instance was running at the same time. Also, configuration dialog is now "standard".
2011-06-26: Now you can put the plasmoid in the system tray.
2011-06-25: Fixed bug with default options.
2011-06-24: Fixed bug with Redshift.

 Problem with local python installation

 by msarahan on: Dec 19 2011

Hi there,

Just wanted to let people know about a problem I encountered. I was getting the "Could not create a python ScriptEngine instance" error message on Ubuntu 11.10. I had Enthought Python Distribution installed in my home folder, and was prepending the path to the EPD python executable in my .bash_profile file.

Removing the prepend fixes this issue. This is a bug somewhere upstream in KDE, I think - they should not be using

#!/usr/bin/env python

instead, they should hard-code to the system python to avoid these troubles.

The code for this plasmoid has no such references, so it must be somewhere upstream.

 Great start, some suggestions

I just tried redshift for the first time today, nice to see that there's already a plasmoid for it!

Unfortunately, I ran into two issues that prevent me from using it:
1. The defunct problem mentioned on page 1. An idea may be to look how gtk-redshift does it, it seems to work reliably for me.
2. The settings are not saved between Plasma sessions, at least not when the widget is in the system tray. Don't know if it's related to this bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=260685

Finally, three suggestions:
a) Put some sensible default values in the options.
b) Detect if user has a config file (e.g. ~/.config/redshift.conf).
c) Activity support! This would be a killer feature - e.g. deactivate f.lux/redshift for your Movie and Presentation activity.

 Redshift plasmoid

I've forked your plasmoid and I've added some improvements (actually I've changed a lot of code, trying to simplify it). Since I've dropped the support for xflux I preferred to create a new page for that plasmoid. You can find it here http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=148737.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
