Dim Screen with Mouse

I know I can dim the screen with F6, is there a way to do this with the mouse?
(I don't see an option to add a button to do this...)

Not at the moment, but just today I have implemented a way to do it into the next release of the Launcher plugin.

+1 would be nice to use the mouse wheel for this option.

Re: Dim Screen with Mouse

maybe flux (https://justgetflux.com/linux.html) will do what you ultimately aim for but automatically

Just an idea.

Nohal,

Thanks for the good news! It means I don't need to build a clickable mouse tool which issues OpenCPN the F6

F6 doesn't get it dark enough on mine.
Flux works as does adjusting screen angle on laptop.

Re: Dim Screen with Mouse

I bought Display Fusion Pro. Very happy. I have 3 screens in the wheelhouse and can set them up as I want.
