It looks like some kind of calibration on my other laptop is in order.
It is clearly grey on this laptop (not blue either though.) But, I'm not
sure how to calibrate it. :(
Um, if all my designs are a little too pink in the future, it's not the
Hello Kitty thing, really!
looks like a decent
reference. Note that doing really reliable calibration requires some
hardware. Perhaps getting a single colorimeter to pass around all the
people within Fedora who are likely to be messing with colors would not
be a bad idea.
You can do rough ballpark calibration without hardware, and how to do it
is pretty well detailed in this Dan's Data post:
under the heading 'Alternatives'.
Note that this is a case of do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do, because my two
monitors and laptop are all cheerfully different from each other. But
then, I don't do any graphic design =). For those who are working with
colors, having a properly-calibrated display is pretty key.
