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.

Any updates on supporting f.lux for macOS Sierra?
I am getting virus warning from my avast when landing on this place, on the favicon.ico. Maybe you guys should check that out.
I've just become a huge fan of flux with the late night work I do and was VERY disappointed to see issues on my machine that had DisplayLink attached!
This would be very appreciated! Thanks for looking into it. I'm glad it's on the to-do. Is there anything we can test at the moment?

Could you provide us with any more information about the new interface in insider builds? I'd love to be able to track this more closely, or even be able to provide feedback via the feedback hub.
@Sergio, the comment about Windows 10 is not about applicability of the solution, but the reason for not having implemented it yet.
What about users with windows 7? still many corporations have not migrated. Are you planning to integrate it there? or any other solution to reduce blue light during the night?
I hope this is humming along, I use a docking station at work and a port replicator at home and it kills me to not be able to use flux working from home in the evenings. Glad to know it is planned at least!

I work from a Lenovo MIIX 700 device with dual monitors setup. One monitor is powered by the intel adapter (which FLUX works on) and the other by my DisplayLink dock. The DisplayLink monitor doesn't support Flux sadly.
Please let F.lux work on displaylink adapters. It REALLY helps with eye strain after spending 8-10 hours staring at a screen everyday.
is there any news on this? I am using displaylink docking station this would be a very welcome feature.

I would love this on macOS as well. I specifically purchased the DisplayLink adapter to be able to add a vertical monitor to my setup and it is frustrating to have the colors/temp different with two monitors side by side. Thanks!
Very much need this on macOS. Having an additional monitor is unusable in my studio at night without Flux support. It is painful to have such a bright device in conjunction with all of the other monitors working with Flux on them.
+1 This would be a very welcome feature to have.

There is now a new version of flux to fix the Windows 10 Anniversary update issue available from their forum here:
The flickering on Anniversary Update is a f.lux bug they are aware of and are working on. Please look for new versions of f.lux.

Yes, me too. Hope this gets addressed.

Any update on this? Just installed the anniversary build of windows 10 and flux + DisplayLink = flickering. Please fix this fast!
Please support macOS with this feature as well. I want all my monitors, plugged into my Dell D3100 to support flux like they do when plugged in via displayport adapters.
just installed the anniversary build of windows 10 and when using the dock and f.lux, the laptp screen flickers - clearly a bug.
Detach the dock and everything works fine.
+1 LOVE my DisplayLink adapter and can't wait to be able to use F.lux with it! It's really making a difference for me so cheers for tackling this new functionality!
