Flux Constantly Failing



  • I have a few laptops where I use F.lux. It's a great application but it always ends up being off if I turn a monitor off and then back on. I have 2 - 3 displays. F.lux needs a more robust method of re-engaging when new displays are detected and/or turned on.

    The workaround is to open flux each time and to enable and disable the 24h preview. Super annoying.


  • f.lux team

    This should work okay. Love to know more about your system, OS, graphics card, and video driver versions.



  • @bn880 I second lorna, as I do not recall having any issue like this. It may be that it has to do with your video hardware, so please be as detailed as you can in that area. Using Direct X Diagnostics tool to list video hardware works great, it also lists system information like CPU and RAM!

    How to run:

    • Hold Windows key, and tap R
    • Type " dxdiag " and hit enter.
    • Copy the 'Display' section to the forum!

    Thanks!



  • One system:
