Shades fails on El Capitan

  • Type: Incorrect Functionality
  • Version Tested: 1.2 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.9
  • Status: Open


I installed it in a new iMac 27" 5K retina display and it doesn't work properly. It "flashes" going from the Shades brightness setup to the regular Mac brightness setup, making it impossible to use.

I used to love shades. It would be fantastic if it worked again in El Capitan

Same deal for me, unfortunately, but on a 2008 MBP.

Same issue with flashing, alternates between the brightnesses about every .75 seconds.

OS X El Capitan 10.11.5, MBP Retina 13in, Late 2013.

Just read the bug report about f.lux.
After quitting f.lux Shades works properly (except from the slider not disapearing, but I can workaround that)
