I've done my best:

(From http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/ArgyllDoc.html)

"In order to make use of the tools, it is necessary to keep track of where 
various files are, and
what they are called. There are many possible ways of doing this. One way is to 
put each source
profile and all its associated files (test charts, spectrometer values etc.) in 
one set of
directories for each source profile type. Similarly the device profiles could 
be stored in a
hierarchy of directories ordered by device type, media, resolution, device mode 
etc. Naturally you
will want to set your $PATH so that you can run the tools from whichever 
directory you are in, as
well as specify any necessary directory paths for file arguments so that the 
tools are able to open

+ the pointers to command line tutorials.
