Which printer are you using?
Does it have a dedicated B&W mode? This is important as the major inkjet
printers use much less colored ink so you can get a darker black and a better
tonal gradation. I have an Epson 3880 and you can see the difference in the
amount of colored ink drops using Epson’s ABW print mode:
Argyll does not support preparing dedicated B&W profiles. However, you can
increase the number of grey patches using the ‘-f’ command in targen. I add 51
patches when I generate a set for profiling.
There are also other approaches such as using only carbon based ink sets as
described here: http://www.paulroark.com/BW-Info/
Hope this helps.

Subject: [argyllcms] How to do B&W on Linux
first I want to say I'm at the beginning when we speak about color
1) What one can do on Linux to get good black and white printing with Argyll?
2) Main issue in grey neutrality..what and how can I do it??
3) Why a good profile can't work with B&W images?
My apologies if I said nonsense words.
