Do you know a paint app with good colour adjustment utilities?
First of all: if you are reading this the chances are you have struggled with colour adjustment at some point. Please tell me about it even if you are not certain it would help me.
I've been using a lot of ink trying to get the colours of a picture the way I would want them to be. There is a HUGE difference between the colours displayed on the screen and the colours of the printed page. In KolourPaint I have in "Balance": Brightness, Contrast and Gamma. This can be applied to all channels or to one of the channels: Red, Green, Blue. There is also "Hue, Saturation, Value". But it is very hard for me to guess what the effect of any change will be once printed out.
I cannot do much with my printer, but maybe there is some program out there which I could tune to get "True Colors" the way we have "True Type" (the printer knows the displayed fonts)? I imagine something where I would start by printing out some colour palette, then put the paper next to the screen and tune the display until the colours on the screen exactly match the colours on the paper. If you have ever heard about such utility, please tell me about it.
Another question, is there any paint program which allows the user to tune colours as if they were real paint? I mean, blue + yellow = green, etc. I find this RGB stuff completely counter-intuitive. I would also need some kind of slider "Bright colours" <----------> "Pastel colours".
All suggestions welcome

Reason: more precise
The result of the "make" command:
- Sitting bored in front of a computer
- Watching abstruse output scrolling upwards too fast to be read
- And waiting for something to go wrong
