  • Hi, I'm desperate for help and I don't really know where I can find it, in windows I can set the saturation from the intel graphics properties, in linux I find out that I need to do it via the xrandr command but it's not working, here is the information that I have:

    [root@Lenovo-Y50-70 ~]# xrandr -q
    Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3286 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
    eDP1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
       1920x1080     60.05*+
       1400x1050     59.98  
       1280x1024     60.02  
       1280x960      60.00  
       1024x768      60.00  
       800x600       60.32    56.25  
       640x480       59.94  
    HDMI1 connected 1366x768+1920+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 410mm x 230mm
       1366x768      59.79*+
       1280x720      60.00    50.00    59.94  
       1024x768      75.08    70.07    60.00  
       832x624       74.55  
       800x600       72.19    75.00    60.32    56.25  
       720x480       60.00    59.94  
       640x480       75.00    72.81    66.67    60.00    59.94  
       720x400       70.08  
    VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    VIRTUAL1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    And this is the output when I try to set the saturation level
    [root@Lenovo-Y50-70 ~]# xrandr --output eDP1 --set saturation 100
    X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
      Major opcode of failed request:  139 (RANDR)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  11 (RRQueryOutputProperty)
      Serial number of failed request:  39
      Current serial number in output stream:  39


    I'm using Fedora 20 and Gnome 3.10,  and I tried too with Fedora 21 Alpha and Gnome 3.14

    Any tips or hints for looking for more information are welcome, please forgive my bad english I'm not a native speaker, and I not totally new to linux I come from an nvidia dedicated graphics, but this is my first time with Intel graphics and nvidia optimus, and so far if I can't get my saturation back I'm going to hate Intel graphics.

    My laptop is a Lenovo Y50-70
