I recently updated to 11.10 and was checking out the color application in the system setting menu. When I read up about colord I got excited because I've been having problems with washed out external monitors with Ubuntu.
I got as far as adding some 'color profiles' to my external monitor but there doesn't seem to be any effect. My understanding of what colord should be able to do is modify the color data that goes to the device so that it looks 'better'. Have I got this wrong? I've tried several different available color profiles but my monitor still looks very washed out (esp. greys and lighter colors)
Thanks in advance,
