and xinerama ?

Hello. I use Xinerama, and kgamma only adjusts gamma on Monitor 1, not on monitor 2
The weird thing is that i have (in kgamma) a menu where i can choose ... a unique screen, even if i check "sync monitors"

Any idea ?
Every day of my life i'm forced to add another name to the list of people who piss me off.

How to install and operate Kgamma on Kubuntu 12.04

I follow these instruction on Kubuntu 12.04. Perhaps you will serve:

But first I Install:



I gave then right clicked on the desktop, and then run order, and a
search box appears, put there "Kgamma" and appears "Gamma", I gave click
and a window which says: "Gamma control module KDE" and there are all
options to adjust the brightness of the monitor. I served to adjust the
brightness of an external monitor (I have a Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop)
brand VA1931wa-LED Viewsonic model and worked perfectly on Kubuntu 12.04
