SOLVED xcalib error: Unsupported Ramp Size

Post by sadhu »

I had a script in LM 18.3 that worked fine, but doesn't work in LM 19.2

Code: Select all

xcalib -d :0 -s 0 -v /usr/share/color/icc/colord/Gamma5500K.icc
xcalib -co 90 -a
Both of these command come back with: Error - unsupported ramp size 0

What do I have to do to prevent this error?

-Thanks,
Sadhu

Found the answer elsewhere, so I thought I'd put it here for Mint 19 users.

Create a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, and paste in this text

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  Driver "intel"
EndSection
in a terminal enter sudo xed /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xorg.conf and make sure the file contains Driver "intel" under the Section "Device". The Identifier may be called differently.

Now reboot or restart X sudo systemctl restart display-manager.

This is great solution! Thank you, it worked well!

NOTE though: the file to create must have a .CONF not .con at the end.

That is, the file should be /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

(Don't forget the 'f' at the end)

Thanks :)

I'm not so good at proofreading. Now it's fixed.
