I'm working from home and my job gave me a raspberry pi to use. I've never used one before, and I have it running but theres no control panel or anything, I just want to add a blue light filter, that's it.

    What Pi? What OS? there are extensive configuration options. What is "a blue light filter? – Milliways Mar 17 '20 at 22:59
  • I dont know what Pi it is. Blue light filter is just a screen filter so there isnt so much blue light that's bad for your eyes. Is there a control panel or something? I don't know how any of this works – Clueless Mar 17 '20 at 23:21
  • Depends on the OS you are running – Jaromanda X Mar 18 '20 at 1:12

    Please open a terminal session, type cat /etc/os-release, and tell us the output. Please edit that into your question rather than replying as a comment. – Bob Brown Mar 18 '20 at 21:02
  • As per this blog, simply using the "warm" setting on your monitor should do: nrecursions.blogspot.com/2018/03/… – Nav Oct 23 '20 at 4:44

Your monitor might have a setting to do with that. My Benq monitor has a built-in "night" setting that provides you with a slightly orange light.


Most Linuxes include a program redshift. Just type

man redshift

to see if you have it and how to use it.

  • Before you recommend redshift, can you confirm (with reproduction steps) that you actually have it working on a Pi? – jimjamz Dec 20 '20 at 8:37
