Say you installed a new app which needs permissions, this app will show a prompt asking for this permission (image: left). if a screen overlay of some sort (e.g. lux) is working, even if you choose "allow", the permission will not be granted, and the "screen overlay" prompt will then appear (image: right).


I'de like that lux will go to sleep mode, every time this permission prompt loads.
What happens normally is that the permission is denied due to the screen overlay even If I try and turn lux off before I press "Allow".

I hope this makes things a bit clearer.

Maybe add settings to the sleep list? I've never had that problem, I am rooted though so that's probably making a difference to that end.

Did I do something wrong? Or any setting can be change? I de-optimiezed the battery optimization in my phone setting already but still to no avail.

That's the normal behaviour when lux is open

Is it possible to make a very light version? Only read light sensor / camera? No overlays etc. Like Lux UL (Ultra Light)

Thanks for your time.

Cheers

If any one can help automatically turn lux to sleep when a permission screen is opened, I'd appreciate it and I'm sure may other will too.
If there isn't an easy fix, maybe a Tasker profile would be able to help. E. G. I made a Tasker profile which turns lux off whenever the app installed is working so I center press "install" directly.

Thanks!

I found it with a little sleuthing! Add the app "Package Installer" to the sleep list and that will sleep lux when permissions are requested. I actually used the lastpass app to find it - when permissions were prompted, I used the notification to have lastpass search for the password... which gave me the name of the app. That app should really be on the default list of sleep apps.

Wow, that's great!
it's funny actually. I used that same app to put Lux to sleep on lollipop. There I was unable to press "Install" during installations from "Unknown Sources" .
Thanks for replying with this! I'll try it.

I must say I am now using a task on Takser which kills two other apps that use screen overlays therefore cause the same problem as Lux (Swiftly Switch and GMD Gestures). The task also and puts Lux to sleep, then waits for a few seconds and opens that apps and put Lux out of sleep. I have a shortcut for the task in the Swiftly Switch favorites. it works great so far!

Disregard my last comment. The built in guide and settings wizard are great!
