I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and I'm trying to use f.lux with ubuntu, but when I start it I get Sorry, we only support 24/32-bit displays right now. How can I change my display to 24 or 32 bit? I'd appreciate any help.

Try putting DefaultDepth 24 under Section Device in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

@officespace Try copying xorg.conf.failsafe to xorg.conf, restart X server and check what happens – Mr Shunz May 19 '10 at 8:08

Try redshift, it doesn't need any particular display depth.
