Question 1: I have to disconnect the i1 from the usb port after each run and reconnect it before a can perform a second dispcal run. If I try to run a second test without disconnecting, I get an error:dispcal: Error - dispread failed with 'Instrument Access Failed'
Yes, it's a known interaction of the Linux USB stack and the i1. There is a fix in the pipeline that should appear in the Linux 2.6.26 kernel (or so I'm told).
I am following the tutorials in the Argyll documentation to do a calibration, which suggests to reset the lcd to factory defaults for a start. So I did.With the factory defaults set, dispcal -yl -r doesn't run succesfully anymore. I allways get this error:Sample read failed due to misread Hit Esc, ^C or Q to give up, any other key to retry: when dispcal tries to read the white test window. When I reduce the brightness of the screen to 50%, the test succeeds. Is this behaviour expected and how do I best deal with it?
Sounds like your srcreen is extremely bright. What do you get if you run "spotread -d" mode ? How about "spotread -e" mode ? Graeme Gill.
