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).

        @All. f.lux support is under analysis. We met with the f.lux developers to discuss an implementation which will keep working with new versions of f.lux.
        We are trying to think about to support individual colour correction rather than just an identical gamma curve change applied to all displays. However, we don't yet if it is possible.

        @Andrew. DDC/CI pass-through on DL-3000 and DL-5000 was released as part of 8.0 M0 so has been available already.

        I use the Datacolor Spyder monitor calibration.

        As of Displaylink 8.1 I believe DCC/CI pass through is supported for DL-6950 devices only. Is that correct?

        Any update on when this might be available for DL-5900 products?

        I've resorted to a dirty manual WORKAROUND for this:

        Using the OSD controls on the monitor itself to desaturate the green and blue until the colour matches the colour output of my laptop screen :-)

        Not ideal, and my colleagues probably get a bit confused/upset when they encounter a hotdesk where I've made this change and forgotten to revert it.

        I've been mistakenly stuck with a DisplayLink device without knowing I was purchasing one. The lack of F.lux support is the primary issue I have with the device. Reliably waking up from sleep is another issue, but the lack of F.lux due to color profiles is right up there as well.

        I'm looking around for laptop to multiple monitors solutions and at present, wherever I see DisplayLink I'm moving on quicklky due to the colour profiles issue.

        Can you provide an ETA on your progress on this? Your last update is half a year old.

        Would be wonderful to have it. I am even considering to use other alternatives. I am using three monitors one with Display Link, It is a huge difference for my eyes.

        And I'm using Windows 7 which is still business Standard. Please make this work for Windows 7

        Just set up a new Targus dockinstation that uses DisplayLink. Was really disappointed when I noticed that my f.lux isn't working and really considering returning the docking station because of it. When your eyes are used to f.lux, having full brightness all the time is really a pain

        PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE update this!! I have three monitors and they are burning my eyes!!!!!! Thanks.

      • Thomas commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there a hope that the color calibration feature will be available for Windows 7 users? Thanks

        We are almost in 2017, any update guys? It was working before this W10 Anniversary update :/

        Hi,

        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!

      • Elo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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?

      • Brian G. Shacklett commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        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?
