My colors on my display (MacBook Pro 2012) seems very dark and sharp. Like good for a movie but bad for gaming.

I know in windows/proprietary drivers you can switch how the display displays colors in the settings.

Is there any way to it here?

I don't think MATE has anything like this built in, but DisplayCAL looks
promising.

$ https://displaycal.net/download/xUbuntu_16.04/amd64/DisplayCAL.deb
$ sudo gdebi DisplayCAL.deb

I don't know how to use it myself, but this page may be helpful.

KDE Plasma Desktop Environment has a calibration application -- Gamma.

On the command line, there's 'xgamma' to alter a monitors gama correction through the X server ("obsolete", use 'xrandr').

interesting, thanks :) KDE Plasma Desktop Environment, that means switching out the whole Mate right?

I think it's a system settings module and you'd need to install a basic KDE plasma desktop. The module package name is kgamma5.

I'm on Ubuntu MATE and I had to install kde-plasma-desktop to make it work.
