What is RedshiftGUI?
RedshiftGUI changes the color temperature of your monitor to better match that of your surrounding. This means that it sets a cooler color temperature during the daytime (due to natural lighting) and sets a warmer temperature at night (due to indoor lighting). Similar to f.lux, this is a GUI port of the redshift project.
The project seems to be no longer developed. Last version, 0.2.4, released in August 2014, can be still downloaded from GitHub.

Combines the time responsive red light of f.lux with a luminosity tweaker, a feature that f.lux should have.
it is quite great but unfortunately it is discontinued
The Linux version doesn't let you tweak when Redshift is active. If you work non-standard hours, or wake up at 7am to do something on the computer then go back to sleep until 10am, you won't be able to force Redshift via this GUI to make the screen red.
Also, the GUI sometimes fails due to being unable to find a location provider.
All I wish for were a simple option to activate it between HH:MM and HH:MM.
I was really looking for a program that would change brightness from day to night. This only changes color from day to night and the brightness bar is static. That's really disappointing.
Well, I find it better than changing the brightness : the scrren is still bright in the night but without hurting the eyes.
