I've been playing around with Mint 13/14's Mate and Cinnamon versions but haven't been able to adjust color saturation and contrast settings of my screen. Did this when Mint 13 was just out and quit after frustration of not being satisfied with the display. I want to be a linux user full time and everything else works fine except my screen which hurts my eyes after a bit of using it.
Gamma correction isnt what I'm looking for because it doesn't do what I want. A simple GUI for controlling saturation/contrast would be the best like windows has it. I found out that the kernel should already have the drivers but if thats the case then why can't I control my screen's basic display properties? Additional drivers available after every installation of Mint I've done so far is only a wireless driver although wifi works flawless without it.
My laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad Z570 with Intel HD 3000 graphics and currently have Mint 13 Mate X64 installed on it.
