Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

xgamma can help slightly, but if your monitor is too bright or too dim you should be able to control it via the buttons on the front of the monitor or if it's a laptop there should be a function key that does it.
did xgamma work for you guys? I had a similar problem a long time ago and this worked for me, I found no other solutions than replacing my monitor which I eventually did. Just put xgamma -gamma 1.0(1.0 is default change high for higher brightness obviously).
Distribution: Gentoo Hardened using OpenRC not Systemd
Bash command not found for xgamma. It is not installed on dsl. I wonder if it's even possible to get it installed on DSL. I'm having too many problems. I may try using DSL-n instead. I will keep trying many things and hopefully something will work.
