|Platform||x86-64||OS||Linux||OS Version||Ubuntu 16.04|
|Product Version||TDM 2.05|
|Fixed in Version||TDM 2.08|
|Summary||0004545: Gamma and brightness controls have no effect on external monitor|
|Description||I have a Thinkpad Carbon X1 Gen 4 running Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit. It has a native resolution of 2560x1440. It's connected via a Thinkpad OneLink+ dock to an external monitor, resolution 1920x1200.|
When I am using the external monitor, with the internal LCD disabled, the gamma and brightness controls have no effect. They only work when I am using the built-in LCD panel. Restarting TDM also has no effect. The default settings for the external monitor are far too light. I can make things a bit better by setting r_lightScale to 1 or some other value < 2, but that's not supposed to be the way this works, is it?
There seems to be someone else here with a similar problem (comment 0000009):
|Steps To Reproduce||Adjust Gamma and Brightness settings while external monitor enabled|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Are any Doom-family games able to control gamma/brightness for you?|
|I've not played any other similar games on this machine. Can you tell me where I can easily download and try one out?|
Don't know any free games like that except TDM.
|Ah :-| I try and run only open source software on my machine. Are there no other Doom-engine-based open source games?|
Soft gamma in 2.07 should work on external monitors.
I guess we'd also need a "soft brightness" mode?
|Would it make sense to add it where r_lightscale is being used now?|
Due to the changes in 0004705, gamma and brightness are now always applied as part of postprocessing shader.
It is highly unlikely that this issue will be present in 2.08.
