How can I reproduce solarized theme colors with xcalib for reading pdf's? I want to use xcalib such that I can read (black and white) pdf's with evince such that the background is like that one I am used to from my emacs solarized (light) color theme and the font color is also similar to that of the emacs solarized theme.

So how can I reproduce this with xcalib?

I tried xcalib -red 1.5 0 65 -green 1.5 0 60 -blue 1.5 0 25 -alter but it didn't lead to the desired result. I don't see how to adjust the values correctly to get what I want.

I might be wrong but I can't see a way to accomplish this using xcalib. I did however find this askubuntu Q&A titled: How do you set system display color profiles in Xubuntu and Lubuntu?.

Seems like colord and color-mgr are the tools for this task.

  • I think that is for the colors of the widgets, but I want to influence the color of the background and font of the pdf page. I tried xcalib -red 1.5 0 65 -green 1.5 0 60 -blue 1.5 0 25 -alter but it didn't lead to the desired result. I don't see how to adjust the values correctly to get what I want. – student Jun 20 '13 at 9:47
