Multiple display: Flux disables itself when I change brightness or right click in Chrome [only primary display; secondary display keeps working]



  • Hi folks,

    Hoping someone can help me out here.

    My setup is as follows:

    • I'm running OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 on a mid 2011 iMac.
    • I've got a secondary Mac display connected via Thunderbolt.

    When I start flux and set it to daytime, it works on both displays.

    However, when I do the following, it disables itself on the primary display:

    • Change brightness via brightness keys on the keyboard.
    • There may be other things that disable flux on the primary display, but this is what I've discovered and can reproduce so far.

    Flux keeps working on the secondary display regardless of what I do.

    FYI - I have this EXACT SAME setup (hardware, OS, etc) across two workstations and it behaves the EXACT same way as described above.

    Thanks for reading :-)

    Nic



  • Update on this:

    I followed the instructions below (i.e. disabling "Automatically Adjust Brightness") and it fixed the issue on one of my workstations but not on the other.

    Edit: I did a reboot on the other workstation and it's working correctly :-)

    These instructions are from the flux quick start guide.
