Thanks Florian!  This is exactly what I was looking for!  

You see,  I had to remove the rpm I used on Fedor 12 since none of the files & 
variables you mentioned were there...so I decided to remove the rpm and  grab 
the latest binary tarball (version 1.1.1) from the website (what I should have 
done in the first place!).

After thiat, everyting works just like you pointed out.  Now, I just need some 
time to get used to my "calibrated monitor" after years of using it 
uncalibrated :(

Once again, many thanks! 

All the best,
