Color calibrating my display on Linux / Manjaro

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone. 


Decided to finally give Linux a try after a while. I am rusty. 


I have a 27" HP display which, under windows, in the Intel Graphics Manager (or whatever that program was called), I calibrated to my liking. Extra punchy colors and high contrast helps me with my reading. Looks awesome. 


I just installed the Gnome version of Manjaro. Anyone might be able to tell me how do I do this? 


I cannot see any way to calibrate this display under "color" (under Devices). 


When I remove the profile, the Calibrate option is grayed out. 


Thanks so much!!!

Most Calibration Software requires Calibration tools. LPROF listed on that page doesn't work, its been dead for quite some time.

You can save your ICC profiles from windows and import them into Linux however.


If your wanting something like windows built in Calibration.

For KDE Plasma its simple as opening Gamma settings.

For Gnome https://ak737.blogspot.com/2018/07/a-simple-color-calibration-guide-for.html

There may be other software, this is just what I know about.
