Hi guys!

I have been a Linux user for years and using Solus on my laptop for a few months now and love it!

I was wondering if there was a way to incorporate a setting into the Os that would help me and many others out. I'm yet to find anything open source that lets me do it on Linux. Please of you know of anything let me know.

I'm 32 years old and have Dislexia. And while I have learned to deal with most of the problems it brings, I also have something called Irlen Syndrome or Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome which is something I can't learn to deal with. Essentially, It's a perceptual processing disorder. It is not an optical problem. It is a problem with the brain’s ability to process visual information. Reading black text on white background can not be processed by the brain properly causing all sorts of reading issues.

Head here here if you are interested:

What helps me when reading physical books, is the ability to use a coloured overlay lense that makes the background behind the text red. Others find blue or green or yellow of varying strength best works for them.

On Windows, you can get software that creates an overlay of colour on the screen as needed but it is proprietary and in some cases expensive. Also on Android you can get apps that do exactly the above. I.e:

It would be awesome if you could include something like this as a setting with a toggle, or if someone in the community could throw something together that can be installed? (I understand it's not as easy as "throwing something together" obviously) It would help a lot of people and could even be a draw for users.

!!WARNING!! Real life post mortem showing just how obesity destroys you from the inside! It is both graphic and super interesting, so suck it up and watch it anyway!!

I have always had a natural curioulsity and being in the process of forming better habits in the persute of a healthier existance, I just had to take the time to watch this.

Suprisingly, the fact that I was watching a real post mortem on a real dead body, did not bother me at all. In fact actually seeing how junk food and inactivity actually destroys you on the inside was both gripping and somewhat motivational.

Knowing that two to three years ago, this is what i was doing to my body is terrifying, and I'm glad I started to make a change.

Also, obesity induced heart failure is fucking savage!

On a side note, body shaming is is a horrible thing and forces BOTH women and men into a spiral of negative body image leading to low self esteem, depression, eating disorders and suicide. IT IS ABUSE! But we also need to make people, (especially the young) aware that being overwieght is NOT OK, that accepting obesity under the veil if "Big is beautiful" is just as dangerous as the stick thin females and ultra chissled and muscular males, that are presented by the media as the ideal body. This video shows just how terminal obesity can be.

Installed Solus to my Laptop! I'm keeping Arch Linux on the Workstation for a little while, mainly because it is set up for exactly what I need.

But for my laptop, Solus is incredible! Everything works, all the time, every time. I had no issues with installation and the software centre has pretty much everything I need for my daily driver. It is fast and stable and looks awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.
