Orange Pixel Glitch with Intel Iris Plus Graphics (Ice Lake)

  • Some pixels on the screen that are a certain color will periodically show up as this bright orange while flux is enabled, mostly in fullscreen apps, but sometimes also in the desktop wallpaper or in apps like google chrome. Let me know if you want me to take a photo. I'm not entirely sure if this is flux's fault since I recall seeing this glitch happening with flux not running, but I just want to know if I could get any insight on this.

  • @jwells Hi there! I'm getting pink neon pixels on my brand new Lenovo Yoga laptop, which only appeared after I installed f.lux. This laptop has Iris Plus graphics. I've been using f.lux for almost a decade and this never happened on other devices. Maybe Iris Plus doesn't work well with f.lux? This is my first device with Iris Plus.

  • @Leah_in_the_East-Bay Hi! I just got a new HP Spectre with Intel Iris Plus Graphics and I'm seeing orange and sometimes blue squiggly lines on my laptop. Maybe it might be the same issue? I want to make sure it's just f.lux and not my laptop before I decide to return it :(

  • @Leah_in_the_East-Bay I´ve recently bought a notebook (HP- by3035cl) that doesn´t have any graphic card (it is integrated in the microprocessor) and the same glitch is happening (I have been using f.lux in other notebooks previously and everything was all right). When I turn off f.lux and use the Windows 10´s night light filter, this glitch stops, but the colors (especially red and green) turns extremely brilliant and it´s impossible to read anything and to use the computer

    I think that there could be some incompatibility between f.lux and the computer processor or also between f.lux and the notebook´s screen. I even don´t know if the screen is badly built and to ask for a refund...

    Any advice/response would help. Thanks!

  • Same thing on a Lenovo Thinkbook laptop, with the latest Intel Graphics drivers. The pixels don't appear on a screenshot of a problematic image.
