Adjusting gamma in linux
I wrote down a note just in case..

If you are playing dark games on linux and the game's gamma slider don't have any effect. Open terminal and try this command before you start the game:

xgamma -gamma 0.7

If that works, it will darken the screen. "Normal" gamma is 1.0.

That did not have any effect to my too low gamma settings in game but type this to the terminal:

sleep 30 && xgamma -gamma 1.4

and then immediately run ur game. Wait a few seconds and gamma should change. :steamhappy:

Thanks. I was worried I wouldn't be able to adjust my gamma back easily if the game should crash or otherwise not revert it when I exited.
