Linux: Gamma, brightness and contrast not changing
« on: Wednesday, June 17, 2015, 10:09:06 AM »
Hey, I just installed Ubuntu with Mate desktop, and assist. Everything else seems to work fine after installing some lib thing, but ingame gamma, brightness and gamma I cannot change. I mean I can, but changing them doesnt affect at all. I have put aa to full screen, and still not. What can be the problem? How can I fix it?

I edited armyops.ini through assist. It didnt have any effect in game, and my resolution setting isnt saved for the next time I launch AA. What can be the problem?

I think I read in another thread about someone having a similar problem where saving the .ini files would fail. Can't find the thread right now, though.

It seems as if it could be a permission problem?
Does the change appear in the file right after editing and saving?

Everything is saved, permissions should be correct, but after running AA, it changes contrast and brightness in the .ini also even though it doesnt affect anything in game, and typing for example gamma 1 to console of aa says that it changes gamma, but nothing happens.

xrandr is your fireind

--gamma red:green:blue
Set the specified floating point values as gamma correction on the crtc currently attached to this output. Note that you cannot get two different values for cloned outputs (i.e.: which share the same crtc) and that switching an output to another crtc doesn't change the crtc gamma corrections at all.
--brightness brightness
Multiply the gamma values on the crtc currently attached to the output to specified floating value. Useful for overly bright or overly dim outputs. However, this is a software only modification, if your hardware has support to actually change the brightness, you will probably prefer to use xbacklight.
