Flux crashes on login screen for macOS Sierra
Hi all, firstly I absolutely love flux (I run it on my 2015 Macbook Pro too with no problems). I am hoping there is an easy solution to my problem as I would hate to have to resort to using NightShift.
I am using a late-2015 iMac, running macOS Sierra (although this problem was also present with El Capitan). Flux 39.984. The computer is work based, so it will log out periodically and go to a log in screen. If I come back to the computer (this typically happens overnight), the screen will be frozen in the typical flux colours. If I try to log in, the screen freezes and I see the spinning wheel - the only way to alleviate the problem is a hard reset.
So far, my only solution to prevent this is to set the time for log-ins to be as long as possible and a complete wipe/reinstall of the system did nothing to solve the issue. Frankly however, leaving my computer unlocked for long periods of time (especially if I am absent) is not ideal...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Wait - so the macOS is crashing at login? That could be unrelated to f.lux, right?
Do you know that removing f.lux makes this better?
It only crashes at the login screen after the computer has logged out of a session because of being idle. So it doesn't happen on startup if that is what you mean.
I think it is due to Flux because I did a fresh reinstall and the problem only began once I installed the app again.
I have a similar issue. I'm running High Sierra on a MacBook Pro with an external monitor connected via thunderbolt. Whenever the screen goes into sleep mode, it's really crashed. the screens are black, but not completely off. I have to do a hard restart. Took a lot of trial and error, but it stopped happening once I disabled Flux.
