GAMMApage is a program to adjust a monitor's gamma setting, either fully or by color. It is capable of setting gamma for most Linux distributions upon login, including those using ATI fglrx_xgamma. It works both for graphical logins or console logins. It only requires write access to the user's home directory, not to any system directories. It includes "preparation" tips with white and black point targets to make gamma corrections effective. This is the pumped-up, Python/GTK version of Monica.

Release Notes: fglrx_xgamma calls were removed for those using ATI drivers, due to reports that latest ATI drivers did not return and set gamma properly using the command. This was tested and verified on Ubuntu 6.10 with the ATI drivers.
Release Notes: Shows and copies the gamma-adjustment command to the clipboard for use. Has option to automatically set init scripts, but this is not the default. Bypasses using Bash for supporting app detection (to hopefully make it more portable). Color adjusting targets have been consolidated on a darker background to ease settings.
Release Notes: The "Help" section was redesigned, and it now fits on smaller screens and is neater. The possibility of a command returning a zero-length string was fixed. Some code cleanup was done.
Release Notes: Awareness of various distributions was increased. More robust troubleshooting messages were written in the case of the file writing failure. Much better documentation and help facilities were written.
