BTW, I installed the Windows version of f.lux and I saw a very handy system tray preference thingy, where Luminence could be set very easily. Wondering if something similar can be done for the Linux version :-)
Although just to note, you say "it should probably be turned off after fork". For my systemd service, I'm also using -nofork, because having daemons fork themselves is usually unnecessary with systemd, and it's simpler if they don't try. So hopefully the fix can work even in foreground-mode.
Ok, I have Mint 17r2 64bit Cinnimimon I have 2 monitors. When I log into the system applet is missing but in a terminal I get this:
fluxgui already running, exiting
I installed f.lux via a terminal window
as I don't know what's up with this.
current apps on startup:
Thunderbird, Skype, Google Desktop (search & index tool) Found an old copy on the Net..
Firefox, Chrome (Not Chromium)
Sofware Development with C and eclipse
Agree with MasterSword1080 - it would be great to see a Universal Windows App that works on Windows 10 Mobile. I use F.Lux on my Windows tablet to read in bed, but it would be nice to have this feature on my phone in the evenings. My understanding was that Windows Phone 8/8.1 was unable to support a feature like f.lux but I don't know if the situation is different know with Windows 10. If so - I would love an f.lux app!
If you have a desktop monitor, find the key for brightness, find the key that you will hold down until it hits the lowest. Also reduce the contrast a bit too if it doesn't degrade image quality. I can take mine all the way to 0 on both, and it's still a bit too bright.
I'd even go as far to say it's pretty warm too! I'm very excited about it, and I'd like to know what kind of interface is set up for the settings (or is it just commands?) Either way, I'm amazed how much work you've put into all the programs and how much nicer my monitor (27 inches now) is for night time use.
