I'd like to mention, that on macOS Sierra, f.lux doesn't work well. The feature OS X Darktheme at sunset changes the fonts to the opposite, but the bar remains light, making it impossible to read menu bar items (white font on light-grey background). The version I'm using is 37.1.
I'm running Sierra as well and can confirm that @muchar 's issue extends to the current version (37.2), too.
Why do they have updates every single month or so that change these things? I'm starting to think they do it purposely.
@Tungsten_smooth yes, it is purposeful, it's called improving an app that you get for free
@swrobel haha, I think he means Apple. I hear they're rewriting some of their color code. And as a result we are updating constantly too. One day we'll get to work ship a Windows update again.
@lorna lol, oops! So you have been issuing updates for MacOS Sierra? Are there betas we can get somewhere or something like that?
@lorna found a bug on MacOS Sierra. If you have multiple accounts, switching between them always turns on sunset mode for some reason (even in the daytime). I have to quit the app and relaunch it again for it to go back to daytime mode.
Im having issues with how f.lux handles dark mode; But I think it more has to do with us using a beta version of the OS rather than the app itself, because flux on El Capitan is working perfectly for me. What I would is that, when I toggle on dark menu from preferences > general, the menubar becomes dark but the dock and menulets stay the same (light mode). When flux handles this process during the day-night transition, menubar remains light but everything else changes. I just need to enter pref > ten and toggle dark menu manually. I installed a CLI dark-mode to troubleshoot and found that when the pref > gen toggle is used, the system remains registered as light
$ dark-mode --mode
And I can enter original dark mode through
$ dark-mode --dark
It is kind of frustrating but that's what we get for using a beta OS until all the bugs are fixed. But this is under the assumption that the dark menu bar setting was already broken / incomplete in Sierra (didn't test the toggle before installing flux)
