Desk Saturation

#1

Post by ibelin123 » Mon May 27, 2019 8:31 pm

Hi this is my first post. Ive been using MX Linux for a week. So far, so good. It revived by old laptop. I am trying to adjust the color now, but I cant seem to find the desktop saturation, brightness adjustment in the Desktop Panel. Can you help? Thanks.

wow, there's some sort of bug ~~ I had to scroll down to see those controls
...and, returning to that dialog window a minute later, the scrollbar and those controls are absent !

Hmm, trick of the eye? MAYBE I only saw those controls in your screenshot.
I'm unable to get those 2 slider controls to appear.
Possibly your screenshot is from a distro using a newer version of xfce components, and those controls hadn't yet been implemented in v4.12

This XFCE thread says those controls were removed sometime between XFCE-4.8 and XFCE-4.12.

Open a paint program, create a solid color image in your preferred color, save.
Choose your newly created image as the wallpaper, stretch-to-fit. Done.

You can install brightness-controller, as it also has RGB color controls...but I don't see saturation as an option in it.

Thanks but I would not want a solid color image as wallpaper.

Would you know how to go about it?

Open MX Package Installer, click the Stable Repo tab and enter "brightness" in the search field. Locate "brightness-controller", select it by checking its checkbox then click the Install button.

Thank you. This somehow helped. Although, I hope the developers would make color calibration of the monitor "out of the box."

I think that this is one of the necessary compromises between running a fuller-featured but slower and more resource-hungry desktop environment and a leaner and faster one with a smaller footprint like Xfce, unfortunately. I wonder if other smaller and lighter-weight DEs like LXDE and LXQT offer saturation and other controls for the screen? I doubt it, but I don't know.
