Error during CMS Conversion: Could not open scanner ICM Profile.

Asked by Melinda on 2009-03-29

First of all I use Ubuntu 8.4, have a HP Deskjet F4235 All-in-one printer that I'm having trouble with. Every time I attempt to scan something with Xsane I get this error message Error during CMS Conversion: Could not open scanner ICM Profile. I've tired other scanning programs, my scanner works fine. But I prefer to use XSane. So hopefully I can get it running properly.

2 things

1. Have you tried unchecking Preferences/enable color management on the menu?
2. If that does not work at the terminal type:

rm ~/.sane/xsane/*.drc

that will kill your configuration. Then restart xsane.

The problem is still there?

Cheers

I tried unchecking Preferences/enable color management now it seems to be scanning okay. It looks like this solved my problem. Thanks! Bye!

Thank you!!!

The 'rm ~/.sane/xsane/*.drc' solution given above worked for me.
