Linux: Gamma Correction

I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 running Ubuntu 6.10. I know there are two different displays for this laptop. At least for me, running "xgamma -gamma 0.7" brings great joy :) To make the change permanent, I added "Gamma 0.7" to the "Monitor" section of "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".

Finally, I can enjoy a nice blue background without becoming subconsciously irritated.

You should use xrandr (man xrandr) instead, it also allows you to set it for each different display you have attached.
