After upgrading from Debian Lenny to Debian Squeeze and opening XFCE, i find that the colors appear "washed out" or "too light." On top of that, the screen resolution defaults to 1440x900 which is inappropriately big for the monitor i'm using. I suspect this has something to do with xorg & hal misidentifying my hardware. I can fix the resolution with xrandr but how do i fix the color?
Running on various server class video cards including ATI ES1000 through a Black Box KVM over Cat5 system. I suspect the KVM system is what's confusing xorg and hal.
