Feature request: Ability to make f.lux disable itself when an .exe is running

  • There's already the 'Disable for an hour' feature however it's annoying because you forget or sometimes you're in the middle of something and you can't keep using it every hour.

    It would be great if we could make f.lux automatically disable itself when a selected .exe is running.


  • For now, just change the Night color temperature to match your Daytime color temperature until you're done with the program in question.

  • Well, yeah, either that and then I forget to start f.lux again or I forget to disable it and then use wrong colors during my color sensitive work. Automation of this kind is really paramount to a software such as f.lux.

  • That's a good point. I forget these things because to be embarrassingly honest, I live at my computer. So, I admit that I forget about how much easier these things can be for me than for others. I apologize for that. I think I also have a mild obsession with dimming the lights and removing all blue light at bedtime, so it would probably be impossible for me to forget to reopen f.lux. :/ I think that if I had a busy life and if I weren't living at my computer, then it would be extremely different!

  • If added, there’s another feature that should be optional.
    I have .exe’s open all the time, with this, it would never dim down.
