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).
f.lux latest releases have enabled support for DisplayLink indirect displays (Windows 10)
You can download f.lux from https://justgetflux.com/
For the few wanted to do real monitor calibration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how to enable this on your particular configuration.
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!

Definitely looking forward to this feature, thanks for working on it!
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.
Getting close to a year and nothing.
I also would enjoy having Flux support for Displaylink. Hopefully this can be added into the 8.0 update.
another +5 here! this was the first thing I missed when I set it up
