Default UT GOTY and Linux troubles

Hello everyone

I installed UT GOTY recently in my Slackware box. Everything went OK and i have installed the 61.11 NVidia drivers (my card is a Vanta LT, 16 MB VRAM, gosh, how old ¬¬).
In Windows XP, DirectX offers me a nice 50 fps in 800*600, 16-bit color depth and all textures in high, decals and dynamic lightning activated. The trouble in Linux is the game brightness controls don't work, evrythin is too dark.

The framerate is the same as in Windows (same configuration), but the brightness really annoys me. Does anybody know how can I solve these troubles? Do I need to touch anything else to make UT work perfectly on Linux?

Thanks anyway
Greetings

P.D.: I tried Cedega, and everything works perfectly except only gives me 24 fps even in 640*480, 16-bit and everything low!

There are a few games that I have where it is dark like that and even maxing out the adjustments it is still dark. The fix for me is to use the command xgamma.

I usually find that:

xgamma -gamma 1.5

brightens up the screen enough, but tweak it for your likeness. You can actually change individual red, green, blue settings. Check out the man page for more info.

Hope it helps.

Ken
