Flux Settings to Match Flux Site Page Background Color?

  • Hello,

    I just downloaded Flux and tried several setting adjustments in all modes to try to match the great rose/light pink background color coded into Flux's own website page https://justgetflux.com/ (without Flux activated). It's a perfect background color for me to use during all daytime monitor viewing.

    Anyone know how to achieve that background color with the Flux settings?


  • No there's no way to match that, but you can use ~1200K.

    Are you using your computer in total darkness? Or is your monitor's brightness too high?

    Closest equivalent is 5600K, and it is very close.

    You won't "see" it that color because your eyes will adapt, but if you put an un-fluxed monitor with our homepage next to a f.lux'd one with a white page they will be the same color.

    This probably makes a good daytime setting for a lot of people.

  • @TwoCables I'm using my monitor in a home office environment- no overhead lighting- just desk lighting and table lamp behind me. I wasn't able to find a close match with the recommended flux setting but set my monitor to 5000k and gamma of 2.2 with the flux setting at 5500 which reduced the text-to-background contrast. Thanks for your help.

  • @herf Wow, I thought it would be much warmer, but comparing with a mobile screen, it's very close! Interesting, as I've wondered this and thought it was closer to 4000K.
