It's too many clicks to get to this slider from the menubar. I'm just wondering if I am missing something in the UI. My workaround is not great: I keep the Preferences panel open but because it is so honking large, all i can think to do is drag it as far off screen as I can... But it's far from ideal. Would love if I could have a little tiny slider. Is there any way to map something like this to the flux functionality?
Say I want to use my android device's built-in light sensor, since it is always nearby, and I typically leave it on the desk I'm using a pc at anyway, however my monitor does not possess that capability, say it wasn't manufactured with one or the light sensor is just faulty.
May I tether a background application of f.lux from my android device to feed light sensor data into f.lux, that's running on a nearby pc, in order to adjust to the ambient lighting of the android device?
(if it were up to me, to prevent overt, background execution and battery hogging, I'd only enable the data to be read in and update the lighting adjustment according to steps at the most expected critical changes of ambient light during dusk or dawn per location, data I'd bet you collect :) )
If this is not already in the works, or a readily available implementation, I believe this would increase the accessibility of your application, and advance it to a larger demographic.
Naturally, I first wondered, does an outsourced light sensor have yet to become a feature in f.lux?
Hey. I often have cramps in my legs when I sit for a long time in a chair while studying or working on a computer. I need to do exercises all the time, but sometimes when I have a lot of homework, I generally forget that I need to get up. I just sit and work for hours, and then I get cramps and it's terrible. I am so young and I already have some minor health problems.
