How do I adjust it? BTW, love the Distribution so far.
There is no GUI, but you could set it like that:
How do I make the change lasts through reboots?
I made a text file & put .sh on the end, Inside I put #!$ /bin/sh.
xgamma -gamma 0.85. Is that right & how do I make it run at start up?
the suffix is not needed - it’s just for you to know that it is a shell script
the file should start like this:
#! /bin/sh your_command_here
then put it into the directory:
create the directory if it doesn’t exist already:
then make the file exexutable:
chmod ug+x ~/.local/bin/your_file
then add it to your autostart applications
It’s easy in xfce:
just add it to the list of programs in
LANG=C xfce4-settings-manager → Session and Startup → Application Autostart
You can even skip all the steps above
and put the command directly in at that point.
Thanks, now I just have to figure out how to do the start up in Mate. I think I got it, I went to Control Center, startup app, clicked add & pointed to /home/edward78/.local/bin/X.sh that seems right?
It works exactly the same was in Mate as in Xfce4.
I went to CC & did what I posted above your post.
if that is the location of your script and if it’s contents are correct and if it is executable, then
and, of course:
the script itself needs to be functional
You did test it?
like this, for instance:
does it do what you want it to do?
xgamma -gamma 0.85
Is what is in it, this is correct?
Tested seems to work.
looks ok - but I don’t know
only you can know
Does it do what you want it to do?
When it does - it is correct. …
if it works, it works
if it doeasn’t:
You could just copy/paste that command:
into where you set the auto started application in the Mate Settings
no need to bother with the shell script
Where is mate-settings? It is installed, but I don’t see it in menu & not a choice in Look & Feel/main menu.
Nah - just look.
Hover the mouse pointer over each symbol and wait a bit … a hint will appear.
It is a menu item (or symbol) right there when you click the Start menu from which you can launch all your applications.
I don’t have or use Mate - but have seen it - it looks just like in Xfce4.
It is just like in Windows - start to type some keyword and matches will appear.
(in Xfce4 at least)
explore a bit - trial and error …
There are 3 possible menu widgets.
System → Personal → Startup Applications
Preferences → Startup Applications
System → Preferences → Personal → Startup Applications
