f.lux not playing nice with my spyder elite color profiles
Hi, I just got this colorimeter for my Macbook Pro, and whenever I try to select one of the color profiles it created based on its calibration, f.lux switches it back to it's own profile that it installed. I can only get it to stick to my desired profile by quitting flux.
I've been using flux for years and I would really hate to have to stop because I like it a lot.
Let me know if i can submit any logs or do anything to help.
Macbook Pro 8,3
Connected to a dell U2713HM over displayport
OS X 10.11.6
@flyevolution I have the same problem and its driving me crazy. I have a custom color profile set for my external monitor, and Flux always switches back to its own. Didn't used to have this problem...
Got this annoying problem too.. maybe I will be forced to quit this app. I've got 2 color profiles one for my retina macbook pro and one for my thunderbolt display, when using flux it resets the custom profiles to the default ones. Fix please

At night: f.lux reads your profile, copies and modifies it, and writes a new one each time.
During the day it should preserve your profile exactly.
If you want to turn off this behavior see this page:
@herf thank you, yeah I understand, It should, but unfortunately when flux deactivates sometimes the wrong color profile is loaded (the apple stock one), and before doing any graphic/video work I need to go to settings and look for the correct one.
Is there a fix? I like how flux "kicks in"

Yes we are trying to restore the chosen profile but there seem to be some new cases where it fails in 10.11+.
You can try disableProfile using the link above. The goal of that system is to avoid flickering when switching between GPU (discrete/integrated) but it is possible that this works better in the new OS (we need to test it again).
@herf ok thanks did it and hope it'll work flawlessly! In any case, waiting for an update! Amazing software!
@Vannix any update? did the command help?
@flyevolution yes it works perfectly!
