Gamma correction, KDE and Wayland

After reading this week’s article by Nate Graham, I understand that Wayland is already very mature:

However, the gamma color correction looks like it’s not ready yet, and it doesn’t seem like anyone is working on it either:

Here in the most recent comments this week, someone suggests two options to modify the gamma value in Wayland:

  • Add a gamma value (or rather 3, one per color channel) to ColorDevice
  • Generate an ICC profile with the desired gamma ramp in the KCM and set it with colord.

This is my monitor:

Could it be possible to do the above commented to modify gamma settings as I use to do in X11?

Best regards!! :grinning: :grinning:

It’s very mature for Gnome and for KDE developers but it’s not the default on KDE yet for a reason so:

  • If you’re a developer: Contribute! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
  • If you’re not: Stay away from it until it has been the default for 6 months. Yes, Xorg is old, but it’s not dead yet!


I’m not a developer and I use the computer for my daily stuff. So, I think that I’ll wait… :sweat_smile:

I’m interested in this because on my computer the colours look a bit faded, I correct it with the gamma correction. And this option it’s not available on wayland… :grinning:
