How do I change my laptop monitor's gamma settings on Linux Mint 9 (preferably using a GUI interface)?

1 Answer 1


X11 can adjust gamma with the command xgamma, which should come standard with X11 on most Linux distros. This works independent of what monitor you use.

The proprietary drivers for some graphics cards offer GUI gamma adjustments.
