Lenovo Ideapad 5 display; monitor brightness and color issue
I just purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad 5; 16:9 resolution, UHD graphics.
Long story short, the display is super harsh and my retinas are melting. Toning down the brightness doesn't fix the issue. Neither does fussing with the night light/ blue light filter. The backlight is very strong and I feel like the color levels need adjusting, but I have no idea how to go about that. I went to the color profile to see if I could fuss with that, but there I got a bit stuck. The only device listed is the laptop screen itself. The dropdown box reads 'Automatic- 81YH' There is no option to create a new profile. It does have the option to delete the exiting profile, but I didn't know if that would screw things up. Does anyone have some suggestions for me? I'm a desperate Ubuntu novice.
I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.1 / Gnome 3.36.8
