Great, that helps! After calling this command also the text console
becomes visible again, when I switch to a text VT.

Before I executed xgamma -gamma 1.0 I queried the X server by calling
xgamma about the current settings and the output of xgamma was, that the
values for RGB were already all set to 1.0! So it looks as if the state
of the X server and the graphics hardware aren't the same after

Is there a possibility to query the graphics hardware about gamma
settings directly?
