    I was just checking Linux on my PC and i noticed that it has more yellow tint. Later i found that it due to increased contrast in Linux. I'm not a code lover so i checked for GUI solutions to adjust contrast, but no solution. Is there anyway by which i can reduce the screen contrast. This is really stressing my eyes.

    A quick Google search gave me these commands:
    First in terminal type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xcalib
    Then type:
    Code:
    xcalib -c
    Load ICC file:
    Code:
    xcalib ICC_file.icc
    Your ICC profiles should be at /usr/share/color/icc
    And then use the below command to decrease or increase contrast:
    Code:
    xcalib -co 70 -a
    Hope this works! :)
