I’ve been hacking at gnome-color-manager for a few weeks now. We had a first release last week, and we’ve since been adding in more new features and a couple of nice bugfixes. But that’s not what this blog post is all about. To calibrate a device, you need to scan in (or take a photograph […]

A few days ago I created the shared-color-profiles project. This contains redistributable ICC profiles from different vendors (some free, some non-free). The configure script allows a distro to install just the profile types that are acceptable. In Fedora, that boils down to the profiles in public domain, but we’re hoping to add CC-BY-SA and CC-BY-ND […]

Next Monday I intend to release the first supported version of gnome-color-manager (2.29.1) into the wild. There have been quite a few new features added to git master recently, and very many bugs squashed. I wanted to thank Pascal de Bruijn for the hours and hours of regression testing he’s been doing, and quite a […]

And so, long story short, we decided to revert the change for F12. Part of being an open source maintainer (and also my job at Red Hat) is to ignore trolls, but some of the messages I was getting yesterday were just personal attacks and abuse. That’s not cricket at all.

GNOME Color Manager now a mailing list – It’s for discussion about colour management in GNOME, and that sort of thing.

Late last night, after a few hours of intense refactoring (to allow udev based devices, as well as xrandr based devices) we got the initial scanner support working: This lets us support printers and digital cameras pretty easily too. At the moment we just need to figure out how to make gnome-scan make a scan […]

GNOME Color Manager now has a website. The mailing list will be set up soon, which means we can start building a community. I’ve also recently completed the calibration integration, using the great ArgyllCMS to do the heavy lifting. This means it’s literally two clicks (with no options!) to generate an accurate screen profile with […]

Well, you could say I’ve been busy. I’ve had a couple of days off this week, and instead of relaxing like normal people, I wanted to fix ICC profiles on GNOME. First the hard bit. You have to go to your screen vendors website, and download the “drivers” for your monitor. They’ll likely come in […]

I’ve got a multi-monitor setup here, with my T61 being my primary display, and a 28″ LG flatpanel as my secondary display. I also take a lot of photos, and do editing in GIMP and Rawstudio and have noticed the colours on the LG are very different to the colours on the T61 screen. And […]

There’s been a lot of noise about PackageKit and debconf in the past, but not an awful lot of coding… Until now. Daniel Nicoletti is the maintainer of KPackageKit, and a log time contributor to PackageKit. He’s also the guy behind all the recent SimulateX() methods that required quite a bit of clever coding to […]
