im running this now, its pretty nice. it adjusts to the time of day. its good for people who are online real late at night an the white background of pages like this one is blinding you. it also keep the mouse pointer at the regular color so it stands out nicely.

Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

f.lux

F.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again.

Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. F.lux will do the rest, automatically.

That's when I upgrade when I install it just repeats the package and says "E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)" So I can't upgrade or install anything :/ I have tried everything from clearing the cache manually to rm-ing the cache directory and using -force options nothing works :/
