Redshift helps with eyestrain by decreasing the amount of blue colors/light coming from the monitor (I think).
redshift-gtk enables a taskbar icon for the program with rudimentary ability to see the current configuration, enable/disable, and autostart.
sudo apt install -y redshift redshift-gtk geoclue-2.0

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp sudo apt-get update
