The best is to adjust the gamma within the Xfree software.
There is an application called kgamma and a plugin for gkrellm to do
such an adjustement.
You can alsao use lprof to create a profile for your monitor. lprof
allows you to have a separate gamma for each of the RGB channels. Then
you can use this profile with the 'color proof' filter within the Gimp.
