Hi again.
I try to anser my own questions.

1) With ColorMunki using printtarg and -pA4 each sheet of paper will contain 90 
patchs or 210patchs (-h mode). I think that 1260 patches (6 A4 sheet of paper) 
should give a good resoult. So I will use targen to create a 1260 patches file.
2) The -h parameter will let me use less paper so I am going to use it.

Hi all.

I would like to use Argyll with my ColorMunki and my 
Epson 4880 to get a good profile in RGB mode. I am not expert and I 
can't use Argyll well, I tried to search for some information but I 
could not find answers to my questions.

I need a good printer profile for fine art printing.

 targen -> How many patch for a good profile? I could not find any 
information (like the one for other insturments founded here: 
http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/targen.html#Table). Maybe it would be great
 to update this page with ColorMunki informations.

2) printtarg -> Do you suggest to use the -h parameter or not? Can I use:
printtarg -v -iCM -pA4 4880Printer
where 4880Printer is the 4880Printer.ti1 file that I have generated with the 
targen command?

3) chartread -> I should have no problems following this procedure: 
So I will just type:
chartread Epson4880

 you have any other suggestion to help me make the best possibile 
profile (I have no problems in reading also 3000 patches if you think 
that this will give a better result for my needs).
