On Windows, my monitor’s color settings are configured using the nVidia control panel with the following values:

– Brightness: increased by 60%
– Contrast: increased by 60%
– Gamma: set to 1.00

However, when I switch to Linux, the settings for Brightness, Contrast, and Gamma are not expressed in percentiles, but rather as floating point multipliers. To achieve equivalent settings in Linux, I cannot simply use 0.6 as a multiplier for Brightness and Contrast. Instead, the results are much more extreme.

I need to know how to convert the Windows values to values that can be used in the nVidia control panel on Linux. Please include the mathematical calculation, as I need to adjust the settings for a second monitor that has different requirements.
