Support flux by allowing color calibration

Flux will reduce the amount of blue light emitted by the screen which aids going to bed. As it stands, there is no support for color calibration to DisplayLink connected monitors. DCC/CI commands are supported, but there are issues that make it not a viable solution (http://superuser.com/questions/257606/is-there-a-work-around-to-configure-brightness-or-color-on-a-displaylink-monitor).

    The implementation progresses. The first products we are working on are the DL-3000 and DL-5000 series and you can have an early preview on Windows 10 Anniversary Update onwards for these devices: http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?p=82958#post82958

    Still a lot of work to do… Please do read the limitations before you start using it and use the forum for the feedback so it can be individually tracked and answered to.

        To answer the question below, No— 10.12.4 "Night Mode" doesn't work (yet). Hopefully somehow, someday it will be supported.

      • LukeLuke commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Has anyone tested to see if macOS 10.12.4 beta's Night Mode works with DL? I assume because it's system based it's likely it would...?

        My ThinkPad USB3.0 hub had the hardware IDs mentioned. Install and directions were clear. f.lux now works on my dual display setup. Thanks so much!

        Great, f.lux works, W10 + i-tec display adapter, beta drive & string EnableGammaRamp=true.

        Hi I am on Ubuntu and using a program called Redshift, which is similar to F.lux. I do not know how to adjust brightness either..please help

        @Alban,
        Thanks! I found the setting for getting email notifications on new comments, so I suppose I'll catch any exciting updates fairly easily. Thanks!

        What's the best channel to be updated on the progress (or more specifically; when a public beta is available) for this feature?
        I just bought a Lenovo dock using DisplayLink technology, and the F.lux support is surely missed.

        Hello Piotr, our Mac team is starting evaluating if it possible. We have met issues with another part on Mac (DDC/CI) so this is not a straight forward port from Windows.

        Hello Sven, very nice monitor, I use it for trade shows as it's light. This device will not be supported in the initial version version. We are still unsure about possibility. They are built differently and already have gamma curve tables which manufacturers like Asus would use to calibrate them in factory depending on panel used. We need to see if we can override the feature. Investigating is definitely planned.

        I hope it will be for macOS, I have a device (VID: 0x17e9, PID: 0x4300) and I use it everyday (as well as f.lux) so I can help test it

      • SvenSven commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I was searching for a small size full HD monitor today and came across the ASUS MB169B+.
        What are the plans for f.lux support on that USB display?

      • Alex FoxAlex Fox commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is awesome news, Alban! Thanks to you and your team. Count me in for the development build testing!

      • Alban RamponAdminAlban Rampon (Windows Product Manager, DisplayLink) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        @johan and all. The products which will first be supported have their hardware ID starting with USB\VID_17e9&PID_43. You can get the hardware ID from Device Manager in the device details (see how to find the HWID in http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/544834#otherdevices).
        Once I have a development build, I will probably create a forum board.

        This is great news... keeping fingers crossed that this will work on my Targus docking station

        Really great to know you are working on a new version with f.lux support ;)

        if you need some tester... I can !

        Best regards,
        memiks

        I'm sad to find that my Asus usb external monitor can't do f.lux... This won't be fun. If you think it's possible to support, please do.
