I can't seem to find this anywhere but every other OS has this...

How can I just modify the color settings on my monitor, e.g. white balance, gamma, etc?

Also, just in case, i'm on a Lenovo ThinkPad.

Here is my graphics card specs:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

Knowing the graphics-chip in there would help us a lot... –  Bobby Oct 21 '10 at 20:12
    
whats the command to get that info? I'll google it too... –  Oscar Godson Oct 21 '10 at 20:20
    
@Oscar Godson: lspci | grep "VGA" should output your graphics-chip. If it does output nothing, please add the complete output of lspci to your question. –  Bobby Oct 21 '10 at 20:29

@Oscar Godson: Please add this to your question. You might also want to remove the colors tag and replace it with an intel one (I'd do it...but I don't have even closely enough rep :( ). –  Bobby Oct 21 '10 at 20:40

GNOME Color Manager can help with device profiles. Install the gnome-color-manager package and go to System > Preferences > Color Profiles.

how do I adjust it after? I have it installed but i can only see how to import things... –  Oscar Godson Oct 21 '10 at 20:33
    
You need to install a color profile for your monitor first; if it's detected as "Unknown Monitor", settings will not be available. See yfrog.com/51gcmadjustp. –  mgunes Oct 21 '10 at 20:55
    
Is there a way to make it supported by some sort of plugin or driver? –  Oscar Godson Oct 22 '10 at 17:49

@op did you figure this out? It seems there are no "settings" after the fact. I'm able to install an .icc profile that I made using Windows's simple GUI but it's pretty useless now unless I can adjust it. –  Isaac Lubow Mar 17 '13 at 13:47
