Too dark...black art. Very punny of you :)

Anyway, the pictures are png's. They look fine in the GIMP (where I edited 
them), and gqview, and in Scribus. Ironically, they also look fine in xpdf 
and Reader on Windows. It's only Reader for Linux that displays the problem.

I haven't done a monitor profile since I've never needed it. I did set my 
color temp to 6500K though.

I don't have 5.08 anymore, so I can't check it on that. But xpdf displays the 
pictures correctly...
Fail to learn history-repeat it.
Fail to learn rights-lose them.
Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups.
