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! :)
