F.lux for Linux: indicator applet available

July 25, 2010

We're happy to announce a proper Linux f.lux GUI, along with a ton of bugfixes to the command-line app.

The indicator project was done by Kilian Valkhof (creator of trimage), and he's posted the indicator applet source here on github. The new package uses Gnome's AppIndicator, so it works on Ubuntu 10.04+. We'll post packages for other versions soon.

In order to ensure you get updates as they're posted, you should add Kilian's repository and install like this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kilian/f.lux
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fluxgui

Here's how it looks!
