Have you tried loading "strange.cal" from the argyll ref directory, to get a more obvious visual indication that the calibration gets loaded ?What do I do to do that?
Does that mean it is probably working? Any reason it wouldn't be if the software says it is?
There's no absolute guarantee that the hardware is actually using the video lookup tables. There have been reports in the past of X11 systems that say they've loaded the tables, but the tables didn't actually change what was displayed.
Here's the result, I see no EDIT or EDID_DATA field. $ xrandr --prop
Hmm. That doesn't really look like I'd expect.
Ok, me and Troy Sobotka (mostly him) figured out the issue. Argyll's dispwin was operating on the wrong display! I wasn't specifying -d2, and I needed to. Running sudo dispwin -r -d1 sudo dispwin -r -d2 resolved it. with -d2, I noticed the CRT lightening and darkening. Not so with -d1.
It would be interesting to see a "dispwin -?" output. Normally the primary display should be -d1. The other thing dispwin can be used for is simply to identify the display:- running dispwin without arguments puts up a test window that starts cycling through some test colors. Glad you figured some things out though. Graeme Gill.
