new Thinkpad edge e330 screen toooo bright

Postby drcasper » Fri Nov 16, 2012 5:16 pm


I bought a Lenovo thinkpad edge e330 laptop, I5, intel HD 4000, I have a problem with screen being too bright and desaturated. Brightness can be changed but that is not the issue.

The laptop had Win7 installed and had options for gamma and contrast but nothing worked.
Is there an way to manipulate the gamma & contrast on Linux?

When idle and screensaver sets of, black color, it stays as it is on the picture, like a flash light.

Is this a faulty screen?

check out the difference, in the back is my desktop with black bg, in front is the bg.

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
