I am still confused. And I think it must be about some very basic point. I keeping reading explanations and the words don't seem mean what I thought they did. How does the system know what the "persistently configured profile" is? Where is it or its location stored?
Notice that <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/dispwin.html#I> refers to <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/ucmm.html>, which explains where this information is stored.
As I understand it, when I first login, thus restarting X, my system doesn't know anything about a profile and the video card has whateverits default LUT is.
As far as I can see, if I just run dispwin -L (no argument), my system won't know how to set _ICC_PROFILE.
It will if you've installed the profile using dispwin -I xxxx.icc.
I suppose dispwin -L (no argument) could look in some standard location such as ~/.color. Is that what happens?
Sorry, I can't remember off hand, and I don't have a Linux machine on at the moment. Graeme Gill.
