A few months ago, I started working on gnome-color-manager. Now, making a display profile using an external calibration device is as simple as a few clicks and a few minutes of waiting. Quite a few people are keen on me working on printer calibration next, and to properly support spectrophotometers. This means you could generate print profiles with a few clicks of the mouse, just like display profile.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a spectrophotometer, and without hardware it’s pretty hard to add support. The devices are also quite expensive, and not something I can expense with Red Hat (they are kind enough to allow me to work on gnome-color-manager in work time as it is!) Generously, the guys on the gnome-color-manager list have put together a collection. If we can get close to the £320 total, then I can buy a device of my own and add support to gnome-color-manager and work on the upstream CUPS support.
If you’re interested in us achieving this goal, and you’ve got a few quid spare, I would be very grateful. We’ve already got £145 towards the total. Any donations gratefully accepted. If we get close enough, I’ll bite the bullet and convince my wife I need to spend some money on “work stuff”. Thanks.
EDIT: total reached! Many thanks to you all!
