"Easier location finding" isn't working at all - it's mostly stuck on Santa Monica (34.00N, 118.50W)



  • Version 4.33 is only allowing 34.00N, 118.50W to be the location. I can get it to know my location, but I have to be very careful about how I do it or else I'll get 34.00N, 118.50W again.

    I can change my location, but I have to avoid going back into the location changing window because if I do, then it'll go right back to 34.00N, 118.50W which means I have to start all over.

    Sometimes I need to fake my location so that I can switch f.lux modes on demand so that I can reconfigure my preferred color temperatures for those modes. I can still do it, but i have to be careful how I do it or else I'll get 34.00N, 118.50W.

    Like right now, if I go into the Change Location window, it will tell me that I am at 34.00N, 118.50W. If I'm not careful and I just press Enter or click OK, then f.lux will get set to that location.

    Edit: I can also tell you that the last several versions of the Beta have never allowed me to have 2 decimal places after the Longitude coordinate, but 2 decimals are allowed for the Latitude coordinate.

    Yes sorry I screwed this up - it is fixed now.

    Also for privacy: we are doing the "0.1 degree" thing when we talk to our servers, because f.lux doesn't need your location closer than 30 seconds.



  • @herf said in "Easier location finding" isn't working at all - it's mostly stuck on Santa Monica (34.00N, 118.50W):

    Yes sorry I screwed this up - it is fixed now.

    Should I be expecting an update from version 4.33 then? I'm not seeing one.

    No it's already fixed on our server.
