Disable f.Lux on 1 Screen/TV



  • Re: Single Monitor Restriction for a Dual Monitor Setup

    This was 3 years ago, I still can't believe there isn't a feature for this :(

    I've read all the comments on the above thread and user @Dogway mentioned there is a solution, it's not a official one but can disable f.lux on one screen.

    The solution -

    -Install Argyll and run in command prompt: dispwin -c -d 2
    *2 should be the screen where you want to clear the LUT, it might be 1 or 2 depending on display assigned ID
    
    -You should see how the f.lux blue filter LUT restores, that's because f.lux is constantly ticking/checking (btw it should be great to disable this). So instead of closing f.lux (it will restore the LUT), simply kill the process: taskkill /f /im flux.exe
    
    To summarize, create a .BAT with the following code and execute at will:
    
    taskkill /f /im flux.exe
    ping localhost -n 2 >nul
    dispwin -c -d 2
    

    I've tried this solution but it keeps disabling all my monitors. Instead of messaging Dogway personally, I thought I can bring this up with other forum members to see if they found another solution and if they can help.

    Thanks

    p.s my Argyll folder is on the desktop, however, I don't think the code/bat file is using Argyll, probably that is the reason?
