of course! you can make a .xinitrc file under your ~/ directory.

$vi .xinitrc
insert xgamma -gamma 4
:wq

logout and login back in to test

your home directory. if your not familiar which the convertions, try changing directoy and runngin "cd ~" and you will always go to your home directory.

and please use useful thread titles why stop half way?? "Is there a way to run xgamma automatically?" - much much more useful.
