Are there really ICC profiles available on your PC today? ;-)

Please tell us where exactly your color profiles reside on Windows for you. Inkscape should be reading them from usual system directories. If it doesn't, then it's a bug that should be reported.

They are as fallow:

is330.icm
ISOcoated_v2_300_eci.icc
ISOcoated_v2_eci.icc
ISOuncoated.icc
ISOuncoatedyellowish.icc
ISOwebcoated.icc
kodak_dc.icm
lg flatron T710B.icc
pcd4050e.icm
pcd4050k.icm

Pro9600 Photo Glossy Paper_PK.icm
Pro9600 Standard_PK.icm
ProPhoto.icm

Exactly the same problem since I started trying to use the colour management some weeks ago.
Just updated to the latest (8/2/2008) nightly but no improvement.
Vista 32, profiles where they belong.

Hi, Klem!
I don't now where profiles in Vista exist, because I'm
XP user.
Of course, at now there is no color management in last
nightly build. At the last week I have received an
e-mail in which author says that inkscape looks in the
usual place for profiles. Yes, that's great, but the
problem is not there.

I've just tried Win version and you are absolutely right. Escalating this request to the developer of interest now.

Jon A. Cruz (jon-joncruz) said : #7

I updated and rebuilt during the weekend of Feb 9-10 and my dev system (which I did all the profile coding on) stopped seeing profiles also. However by the next weekend it was fixed due to other changes.

A Windows build from then or later should have that one problem addressed. The other issue might be what directories Inkscape looks in.

.color/icc/
"user data dir"/color/icc/
"system data dirs"/color/icc/

"user data dir" is from GLib's implementation of the XDG Base Directory Specification.
the set of "system data dirs" also comes from that specification, but is described in the GLib documentation
http://library.gnome.org/devel/glib/stable/glib-Miscellaneous-Utility-Functions.html#g-get-system-data-dirs

Can you help with this problem?
