[ubuntu] ATI/AMD startup annoyance...

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Tried another forum (Precise) for an answer, but perhaps this one is more specific. I bought a laptop with a ATI/AMD 6970 card. When rebooted into OO or PP the gamma is extremely light. If I start the Catalyst control center and then cancel it, it reverts to my custom settings. The settings are shown as saved properly, but not recognized on reboot. One suggestion was to go into the monitor 'Displays' and click 'Apply', but that didn't work. With all my previous NVidia cards, I added 'nvidia-settings -load' to the Startup Manager to load my settings hidden...is there a equivalent ATI/AMD (Hardware)
