Pause Night Light (in Gnome)


– tags: gnomeextension

See this Gnome Extension and this repository on GitHub

What?

The extension will disable Night Light for 10 seconds.

Why would you want to do such a thing?

A small pause will enable you to scan those color-codes on your screen with the scanner from your bank.

It will automatically turn Night Light back on again so you don’t have to remember to.

An alternative

I also got a shell script that does the same thing:

#!/bin/sh
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.color night-light-enabled false
sleep 10
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.color night-light-enabled true
