"The sun is up" (no it isn't)



  • I've been using f.lux with no problems for several years, and it's majorly helped with my chronic insomnia. A few weeks ago I started having problems falling asleep that were much more severe than they had been in some time, and after several days of trying to figure out what could be causing it, I checked to see if f.lux was actually working properly. It wasn't. After the sun has already set, the program's interface will tell me "Sunset: [however long ago]" while also still telling me "The sun is up" and not doing anything to adjust the colors on my screen. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program and turning off my system's automatic time zone detection and setting it manually, but to no avail. I can get it to work properly manually by clicking on the big circle on the right of the slider (above the part that tells me when the sunset was), but I'd rather have it actually figure things out and work properly on its own without me having to do that every day. Any help would be appreciated.



  • Can you post f.lux options > driver info? Will let us see the versions and other things.

    Also please post what it says at https://justgetflux.com/timesync.html
