Colorimeter-based approach

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on July 29, 2006 08:35 AM
Although it has been possible to properly calibrate a monitor under Linux for some time now it is not well known.

Essentially you either use Argyll CMS to natively calibrate the monitor (only a couple of Xrite colorimeters are supported) or use a profile created in Windows or Mac OS on the same machine.

Then you need to load LUTs from a vcgt tag of the profile on startup using either Xcalib or a dispwin module of Argyll CMS.

Then you need to specify the monitor profile in color managed applications. There are several colormanaged application for Linux (Bibble Pro, Cinepaint, Sribus etc...).

There's a Wiki on the subject:
