I'm trying to make an Ubuntu(Debian) package of argyllcms too, since
one week, and it's difficult because of jam use, and because i'm a
novice in packaging.

Graeme Gill, do you plan to take care of patches made in Fedora and so
, do you are planing to release a new beta version soon ? (kind of
christmas release ;) )

Is it possible to have an .ksh script (like makeall.ksh) that do a clean
installation of argyllcms in /usr/ (taking care of a path givin in
parameter - default in /usr/local), this will simplify installation from
sources, and also packaging for distributions.

Why do you are providing libtiff and libusb in sources ? Is it possible
to take care that, under linux, argyllcms should be built automatically
with distribution packages of libtiff-dev and libusb-dev, and not by
libs that you provide in src ? (i must patch sources to compile with
distribution libs).

Best regards
