Re:xcalib ?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on March 02, 2006 01:04 AM
Xcalib does not apply a screen profile - it only uses a calibration info stored in the profile to adjust the graphics card LUT table so that the monitor is calibrated.
The purpose of the profile itself is mainly for conversion between colour spaces (e.g. Adobe RGB to the Monitor profile). The calibration info is something extra added to it.
I have read somewhere that the approach of calibrating monitor in a different OS and then using the information in linux may not be the best way since different OSes may process information for the graphics card in a different way.
Anybody has more information?
