Ubuntu

Using gnome color manager

Asked by lollus on 2012-06-20

Hi guys, I did expect GCM to come up in the application menu. A simple but well-thought window would ask me where it should pick up the ICC profile for which device, and offer to generate one for the monitor (using a Spyder). Instead, it seems to be all console-based and I found no instructions - only instructions to compile the package, but nothing on using it.
I have Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit and it has everything installed, but I cannot find the UI nor the program.
What am I missing? Thanks, Lollus

OK I got it in the menu now but it does not do anything. I click and nothing happens, not even a crash report. Ideas will be much appreciated.

I finally found a working UI link: it is in Gnome under "system settings". All other UI links (in Gnome under the "Applications" menu, in Xfce and UbuntuStudio under some similar menu) do nothing. This is a great pity, particularly after they said that UbuntuStudio is for "professional artists" :) Is there a chance that someone may look into it? Or tell me what I have done wrong?
Cheers, Lollus

OK I figured it out, I rarely use Linux, so it took a while. It is all in /usr/bin/gcm-* . But really, it is a pity that this clever thing is hidden at the first install, especially in the "professional graphics" flavour. Cheers, L
