wow, it must be a very hard question that no one can answer, or a very easy one, so people aren't answering....

I think adding a line

Gamma 1.5

(or whatever number you want) in the Monitor section of xorg.conf should do it (at least that worked with XFree and xorg tries to be compatible)

Awesome dude, it worked, i added Gamma 2.0 and it made it very nice, because the brightness on my moniter is very low, and i couldnt turn it up anymore on the monitor. Thanks alot man!
