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 am aware of no operating system that does monitor color calibration "out of the box".

To do the job properly requires some sort of photospectrometer or "external calibration device" like, for example, the Datacolor Spyder5Pro (this is not an endorsement as I don't have one nor do I know anyone who does).

However, I believe I have seen a number of applets that facilitate adjusting color, hue, saturation, brightness, and contrast. I just don't remember what they were called. If you have a profile for your monitor, one can use something like dispcalgui or gnome-color-manager to install it. One can also use these software applications, in concert with an external calibration device, create such a profile.

I'm sorry. By monitor color calibration I mean this:

I hope somebody here can point to me what these applets are called. I will, however, check gnome-color-manager you suggested.
