Ubuntu, nVidia, e i video virati al blu

Dall’ultimo dist-upgrade, 9.04 -> 9.10, mi succede questa cosa, e cioè i video che guardo nel portatile appaiono tutti virati al blu, con i colori palesemente incasinati.

Dopo aver dato la colpa ad un rippaggio errato del video, e soprattutto dopo essermi accorto del malfunzionamento anche in video che in passato si vedevano bene, ho indagato un poco, ed ecco cosa ho scoperto.

Dunque, i video non si vedono bene, con nessuno dei player installati nel sistema.

Lancio l’utility di configurazione della scheda nVidia e, senza modificare alcunché, il video si vede correttamente.

Chiudo l’utility della scheda video, chiudo il video e lo faccio ripartire, e colori sono nuovamente incasinati.

Lancio allora l’utility xvinfo, che riporta informazioni sul server X, e questo è il primo output:

Dopo un diff tra i due output, ecco cosa emerge:


75c75
"XV_BRIGHTNESS" (range -1000 to 1000)
client settable attribute
< client gettable attribute (current value is 1) --- > client gettable attribute (current value is 0)
84c84
"XV_HUE" (range -1000 to 1000)
client settable attribute
< client gettable attribute (current value is -1000) --- > client gettable attribute (current value is 0)

E’ chiaro che i valori di colore e luminosità sono differenti, ed in particolare il primo potrebbe essere la causa della visualizzazione non corretta.
Ho cercato il modo di automatizzare l’impostazione agendo sul file xorg.conf, ma senza buoni risultati; l’unica soluzione semi permanente (non ho provato a rivedere un video dopo il reboot), è questa, valida per Totem, il mio videoplayer predefinito, ma applicabile anche agli altri, direi: Preferenze -> Visualizzazione -> Bilanciamento colore -> “Ripristina i valori predefiniti”.
