F.lux dims my Chrome
So, this started happening a little while ago. Whenever I load a new page on Chrome the whole screen dims down and then goes back to bright when the page has loaded. Tried everything and realized it's actually flux doing this.
This also happens on some sites like Twitch when I scroll down the page. The screen will dim down little by little on every scroll and the go back to bright when I scroll up. Is this intended and how can I turn this off? Also it's not the colors changing to less/more blue, but the screen actually going darker/brighter.
I would also be happy to load the v3 if it gets rid of this, but I can't find it anywhere.
Thanks for the answers
Anyone? Tweeted about this @f-lux-team too, no answer
- Can you post your driver versions (bottom of options menu)
- Can you make sure you've followed instructions here: https://forum.justgetflux.com/topic/4653/tinted-screenshots-or-fullscreen-apps-and-games-missing-f-lux
So I realized that actually flux dims the screen when there's less bright things on the image that is shown on the screen. If I have a reddit post with a picture open with a dark theme on reddit the screen is normal. When I scroll down to the comments, the image gets darker and flux dims my screen. If I click one of the replies to highlight it with a more light color the screen will go back to normal brightness. I can't find anything on flux settings that even says flux does this.

f.lux doesn't do any content-based dimming, but Intel's DPST driver does, and they turn it on during every driver update.
If you Google around you can find a way to disable it.
Also it may be good to update your Intel driver because it's from 2015.
I don't use the intel graphics card, I only use the geforce gtx. But thanks for answering anyway, appreciate it.
