Projects / GtkGamma


GtkGamma is a simple program that allows the user of an XFree86 station to easily alter his/her monitor's gamma correction. If a monitor's gamma curves haven't been tuned, colors half in the range from black to maximum tint (either red, green, blue, or white) tend to look different from a uniform pattern, formed by an equal number of black and maximum tinted pixels, although it should look exactly the same. GtkGamma provides a simple GUI that gives the user the feedback needed to correct these curves.

    Helpful for finding correct gamma
    The documentation is good and gave me an idea of what was going on. You just adjust the gamma while watching some boxes until they melt into the background. A slider instead of a spin button would have been prefered for the adjustment control. I have a hard enough time with 0.1 differences, let alone 0.001! It's amazing what a difference it makes if you have a high gamma like mine (1.9) though.
