This is open source, while f.lux wants you to download a binary and run it constantly on your system.7
To start the program, just type "redshift" in a terminal.1

Comments about SunsetScreen as a Alternative to f.lux
Can set also brightness level to change automatically. Can set the time to change to night time yourself.4
So happy I can set my own times. In the winter the sunsets happened way to earlier in Flux, then I'd turn it off and forget to turn it back on.4
Much better transitions and less laggy-1
I can change the settings in this software to activate in 24 hours but I can't active red layer in Flux in 24 hours.0
Able to set times, value of filter... More options.-1

Very minimalistic and lightweight. Doesn't affect games (i.e. microstuttering) the way f.lux does (if you set it to Paused mode).-2
