How do I get non-anemic colours?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've searched high and low for an answer to this. What I find odd is that the only person on the internet who seems to have had a similar issue (or even recognised this as an issue) was one photographer (who referred to the colour as "magenta"). Of course, as a photographer he had access to colour calibration equipment and was able to solve his problem that way: a luxury I don't have. What's puzzling is that no one else seems to recognise this as a problem. Other people's graphics card issues always seem much more serious i.e. nothing works, which isn't the case here. Yet it's the same for ev (HowTos)
