Either it's stuck with sRGB, or double color correction is applied. 2) The gamut is limited to sRGB (or some other chosen colorspace), rather than the full gamut of the monitor being available to the application. This can be significant in proofing situations, particularly if optimized proofing device links are being employed.I'm wondering, does the plug-in support separate color transformations for each window (including no-op transformations for those windows which should be color-managed by the application)? Then the applications could still do their own color management in their windows, or delegate the working space to monitor transformation to the compiz plug-in (by assigining the working space to the particular window as source color space for the compiz transformation).
I put in my reply from yesterday (I am replying to digest): Applications, which want to do early colour binding and doing fancy stuff with device links, thats possible through putting a hole in the colour corrected desktop in their own window. They are free do whatever they like with the full gamut available. This is as well a useful path for monitor colourmeasuring. CompIcc is multi monitor aware as stated: http://sourceforge.net/projects/compicc/ "The Compiz ICC colour server, or short compicc, lets you colour manage your whole desktop at once and in hardware. Play movies, watch images on wide or narrow gamut displays. Each connected monitor is colour corrected for its own.
