I am using a computer with Radeon HD 7870 OC GHz edition. After installation, I realized that the colors were somehow incorrect. I cannot seperate lighter colors from white. Blue things are more blue and lighter, and so on. I encountered the same problem on elementary OS Freya using open source drivers. After installing the proprietary driver, the colors seemed correct. The problem does not exist on Windows 8. I suspect that the problem is due to the open source drivers and/or newer kernels. Since I cannot easily install the proprietary driver, how can I solve the problem still using the open source drivers?
