Looks like you have the same display as me LG ultrawide 2560x1080, what can it do?

Mine's the 25" model, didn't have the space - seen Harry Potter - my desk is under the stairs :)
It was also a pig to set up, no problems under 18.3, but 19.0 - had to mess around with xrandr to get the max resolution (it's connected to a thinkpad T430).
Did you make any adjustments to the colour profile.

No, just using it as it came 'out of the box'. Do really like the extra real estate you get with an ultrawide.

Having done what you did, it has changed my display - the greens in the mint site are greener (if that makes sense) and I now have a two tone grey menu (which also happens in some other apps). I think I like it! Note the green is not as 'fluorescent' as in the screen shot.
