Agreed. I have a laptop with crappy gamma settings at work, and I
couldn't figure
out how to use KGamma to fix things. In my opinion, if somebody knows how to
calibrate gamma settings then they probably already know how to install KGamma,
or at least search for gamma-modifying tools in the repositories.
