Most people use the hardware controls on their monitor.

I don't know if this still works.

I don't think 4.x versions of puppy include tkgamma, although you should still be able to install it or something similar.

puppy 4 does not include xgamma...a saving of 6.5k...wow

so I will attach it..put in say /usr/bin

in a teminal
Quote:
xgamma

shows current setting
Code:
xgamma -gamma 1.2

ups the brightness...1.0 is default
add to /root/.xinitrc to apply each boot

ps only works if using xorg
xgamma.tar.gz

It doesn't work on a lot of on-board video cards even if you are using Xorg... which is silly when Windows can control gamma on the same cards Sad

It's all a bit silly ..eg I have a flat screen and is too bright even with its own controls set to minimum...and xvesa has no apparant control option...without xgamma puppy would be unuseable on it (or any other linux?)...such a basic need to be lacking is erm...well lost for words
