I tried to use Gnome Nightlight in Ubuntu 17.04. The settings only allow me to turn it on and adjust the time. Is it possible to adjust the intensity of the hue? Currently, it's a bit too much.

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.color night-light-temperature <temperature>

Here are some temperatures values I determined myself (probably not correct):

  • 1000 Lowest value (really red)
  • 4000 Default night light temperature
  • 5500 More pleasant and less intense night light temperature
  • 6500 Default temperature (night light off)
  • 10000 Highest value (really blue)
  • Great thanks! It worked like a charm. – THpubs May 13 '17 at 6:08

There's now a shell extension called "Night Light Slider" that works quite nicely: Night Light Slider gnome shell extension

In case you don't already have shell extensions running, here's a good overview of what to do: How do I install and manage GNOME Shell extensions?
