f.lux v41: Big Sur and Apple Silicon support
@herf I am using an M1 Macbook Air. Even if I'm not using darkroom mode, when I invert the screen colors to read light text on a dark background, everything turns blue. See this photo of my screen:
It looks like the flux filter is being applied, and then everything is being inverted, rather than the color inversion being applied, followed by the flux filter.
Yes it does seem to work in the other order on Intel machines. (invert, then color, rather than the reverse.)
Do you use the system hotkey to turn it on?
I guess right now the only fix (other than asking Apple to change it) would be for us to implement our own invert so we can fix things up when this happens.
@herf I do use the system hotkey combo (ctrl + option + cmd + 8) to turn it on.
Is this bug a problem with the OS or the hardware? Why would it change between intel and M1?
I still have white cursor with i7 2018 Mac Mini. No issues with Mac mini 2012 with i7 processor.
I recently switched to an LG Ultrawide 35WN65C and the f.lux experience it pretty bad. Suspect the display is largely to blame.
- Color temp is way off when using 85 hz refresh via HDMI. Much too blue when compared with my previous Apple Cinema Display 24", side-by-side. Set to 65hz, it's closer to "correct" but maybe not quite.
- When waking from display sleep, the display shows native color for a moment, then blinks and comes back at adjusted color temp, then back to native, then back to expected color.
The display seems to be "resisting" flux, but mainly in the 85 hz mode.
The white cursor bug should be fully fixed in 41.5 - we have not updated people on 41.4, because it works for most people there.
Our main download link should be the latest version.
For the LG - you will need to find an ICC file to calibrate the device. We depend on good calibrations.
@herf I have some questions.
When I run "dark room mode" in Flux, clearly, Flux is able to do a scren color inversion before going monochrome, because I get red text on a black background. Could you offer some method to toggle the screen color inversion from Flux (at whatever layer or sequence of operations Flux is doing this), because I really need the ability to pick the inversion when in dark room mode, and Apple hasn't fixed things on their end. Sorry about troubling you about this, but this is a real problem for me.
Hello! I've downloaded v41.5 for my new Mac, and it displays a greenish tint instead of the familiar sepia orange. I've tried redownloading and installing it to no avail.
About my machine:
model: MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021)
chip: Apple M1 Max
OS: Monterey 12.0.1 (21A559)
there is a temporary workaround here:
I'm having a similar issue, but I'm on an M1 MacBook Air, using Monterey 12.1 Beta 3.
I'm having an issue uploading images, but here's a link: https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0Rqasm2mG_di0AFm4Jacwq6_w#IMG_0814
The colors almost look inverted, but white turns to blue, and blue turns to a kind of magenta.
I'm on F.Lux version 41.5.
I appreciate all of your efforts.
The issue only occurs when the machine runs the integrated graphics; whenever it switches to the 5500M, the cursor displays correctly. Two other devices without switchable graphics (iMac Pro, 2016 13" MBP) do not have the issue; they did not have it under f.lux 40.1 or Catalina either. I am still experiencing the white cursor on my 2019 16" MacBook Pro (5500M), running Big Sur 11.1 and f.lux 41.1.
