Projects / Monica


Monica is a monitor calibration tool using the FLTK library. It works as frontend to xgamma to alter the gamma correction for XFree86 or Xorg. The black point, gray, and color blocks help to find usable settings for a target of 2.2 gamma, the Web, and sRGB standard. FLTK libs are not needed for the binary.

    Release Notes: The code was updated to compile with gcc-4.3, and several deprecation warnings were eliminated. The text was set to wrap in the info/license display and a smaller window is used for smaller screens.

      Release Notes: This release fixed a possible problem with Slackware graphical login, which uses an initdefault of 4 in inittab. A separate Slackware package and a binary without the FLTK dependency are now available.

        Release Notes: This release adds support for ATI's flgrx_xgamma, which overrides xgamma when their proprietary drivers are installed. In other words, if you are using ATI's drivers for Radeon chip cards, Monica should now work for you.

        •  09 Apr 2005 10:05

          Release Notes: The color patches were tweaked to make them easier to use by putting the solid section inside and eliminating gray inner borders. The grayscale ramp was reintroduced as it alerts users to the fact that their bit depth is set too low.

            Release Notes: This release now writes proper values to ~/.monicarc.
