Support f.lux on Windows

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).

        Felix, colour correction and contrast are different. From our 8.0 Beta 4, you are able to use applications like ScreenBright to change the contrast settings via the computer.

        Colour correction is totally different, as f.lux states in their online contributions. The feature is currently on the roadmap for the devices which have the horsepower to handle it. Device with a USB Product ID starting with 0x0 will never be able to support it because, unlike brightness or contrast which are just a command to send, colour correction requires the device to compute.

        +1 I'm using a Monitor via a USB 3.0 DisplayLink adapter and DVI. So I can't do any contrast adjustments directly in the monitors menu because it's greyed out. I really need a color correction directly in the DisplayLink driver.

        I also would enjoy having Flux support for Displaylink. Hopefully this can be added into the 8.0 update.

        +1 - I've used F.lux for many years and I've just invested in a DisplayLink and it's lovely but it won't support colour calibration and hence F.lux.

        Yes absolutely a must have; flux works nicely on my thinkpad's built in screen but not support via my Dell USB portreplicator with displaylink.

        Now that Apple has added similar support in iOS 9.3 ("NightShift") there will be more interest in this, so hopefully this will get added soon!

        Basically Any Method for adjusting the gamma would be great. I found something to adjust the brightness but that doesn't fix the real problem. Just makes it so it doesnt hurt as much.

        Please integrate this feature! Working with flux on my extra monitor is crucial to me! Thanks

        I really need color adjustment options for DisplayLink connected monitor. The monitor itself can't provide as much adjustment as required to get the colors displayed correctly. The driver does not allow any configuration, Windows color calibration just gives no effect. Please add functionality to adjust colors, gamma, contrast, brightness and other appropriate settings.
        I have just bought a USB dock station with DisplayLink, and currently it is very disappointing to use it with poor display color settings.
