version not clear and cam option



  • Hello, I have two questions for the development team. First, please, could you show more clear the current version number available to download at main page? For example, flux-setup-4.41 or something similar, or at least publish the latest number version at the "News" section (non updated since January 14th, 2016). Second, please, would be anytime an option to make an automatic selection or custom darkness selection through the notebook cam (I meant that the cam would be able to auto-detect the bright of the room and increase or decrease the notebook light at one optimized or previous customized range). Thank you very much for this useful tool to reduce eyestrain. :)



  • Sorry for replying to my own post, but I need to explain better about the "cam option":

    (1) "f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time."
    Not all the time and not by itself. The only way to do this is through the webcam of the computer. Example: you are in your room and the light stop working, and the room turns completely dark.
    (2) "Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically." Not automatically. The only way to do this is through the webcam again. Example: it's suntime wit sunlight and suddenly an ugly storm makes dark the sky.

    Probably the easiest way to solve partially both issues is with the hotkeys to change brightness, but obviously it needs the hand of the user to work. Thanks again. :)
