El Capitan automatic brightness still flickering even after flux uninstall
On El Capitan Flux was making the display flicker. The colors would get darker and lighter. I moved the Flux app to trash along with the preference file and it is still happening. How can I fix the issue caused by f.lux to get my auto brightness working again?

Did you quit f.lux first? Sounds like it might still be running. You can disable your autobrightness, check Activity Monitor for a leftover f.lux process and force quit it, and then restart your computer. Then either re-enable autobrightness if that's what you want, or if you decide to re-install f.lux leave autobrightness off.
I quit the flux and then deleted it, emptied trash and then restarted the computer. I will probably not be reinstalling f.lux until the auto brightness compatibility is back as I rely on it a lot. But the flickering is still bothering me. Is there any other preference file or something that f.lux creates that I can delete to fix it.
ps: it goes away if I turn off auto brightness. But like I said, I need to keep it on.

El Capitan is changing a lot of things now when you turn on auto-brightness. It's a completely new feature with an old name. This is not our fault! In some versions, we have seen it ignore recently-installed color profiles and other stuff like that.
Google around for "ambient light compensation" (it was a separate checkbox during the beta).
