I just checked, and there doesn't seem to be an Argyll package for Ubuntu, however the package manager that is the default is called Adept "System->Adept Manager" add/remove is an attempt at making common GUI based programs easy to install, but it's not useless, just idiot proof.
I found a port of the Debian Multimedia Argyll package for Hardy here: http://blog.pcode.nl/2008/08/argyllcms-for-ubuntu-hardyUse this at your own risk, as of course this is not an official Ubuntu repository. But I've installed it and it seems to work.
So open Adept: Adept->Manage Repositories Add this repository (the following line) to your sources.list: deb http://ubuntu.pcode.nl/ubuntu hardy argyll then search Argyll and install. OR In a shell: $ sudo pico /etc/apt/sources.list Add the above repository (the line) CTRL+O to save CTRL+X to quit $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install argyll Leonard Evens wrote:
I've been using argyllcms under Fedora Linux 7, and I recently upgraded to Fedora 9. I've found in the past that it is better to do a fresh install rather than upgrading the existing system, and that is what I did for Fedora 9. Of course, that means I had to reinstall all the extras, including argyllcms. I was pleasantly surprised to find that argyllcms is now available as a Fedora package, and that simplified things enormously. In addition, I now have a Dell laptop which came with Ubuntu 8.04 installed. Unfortunately, I am not as familiar with Ubuntu (Debian) as I am with RedHat derivatives such as Fedora. In particular, I am struggling to understand package management under ubuntu. There is an application called add/remove programs, but the genral consensus seems to be that it is useless and that I should use the synaptic package manager instead. A web search seems to show there is an ubuntu package for argyllcms, but I can't find it by searching with the synaptic manager. Can anyone tell me just what to do to get that argyllcms package and then install it in a relatively transparent manner?
