Hi – got a new (cheap) monitor and the colors are pretty out of whack.
I’ve toyed with displaycal and a colormunki in years past, and back then (as I understood it) the advice was to generate a profile and use it for specific apps (e.g. gimp) rather than worry about system-wide profiles for whatever reasons (complicated? buggy?).
I’m now on Kubuntu 18.10 with multiple monitors (but only really care about the new one) driven by an Nvidia GTX 1060. I see this which implies that system-wide isn’t too painful nowadays on Kubuntu. I also see this from a couple years ago which is a lower-level approach.
Any recommendations? I don’t need much in terms of features. I just want to generate a solid profile and have it “on” for the screen without much more hassle than that. If can just go through the steps on displaycal and follow the instructions in the first link above, that sounds great, but if reality is messier, and e.g. there is still some argument for only using the profiles in specific apps, I’d like to know before I spend too much time on it.
Thanks for any pointers!
(P.S. I also use Redshift, in case that complicates anything.)
