I wonder if there's any tool to implement ICC aware transforms on spooled print jobs for CUPS / Foomatic / Gutenprint. It seems like one can embed a ICC tag into files that are to be printed but AFAIK there's nothing that actually does (as a print filter / option) anything with that such as converting from source ICC to printer colorspace.
It's possible to lash up PhotoPrint and a shell script into a very rudimentary solution for this. The result isn't properly CM-aware, and can't take profiles from submitted print jobs - what it *can* do, however, is convert spooled print-jobs from non-CM-Aware apps like OpenOffice from a preset source colour space to a printer profile.
Mail me off-list if you're interested to know more. All the best, -- Alastair M. Robinson
