    Your message reminded me that I was meaning to test it, but haven't got round to it yet as 11.4 remains my main workhorse and 12.1 is so far only for fun... So I thought "let's have a bit of fun with the new colour management" but I can't find it! Where is it???

    Same problem for me. I don't know where to find it.

    "zypper in kolor-manager" for kde, or "zypper in gnome-color-manager" for
    gnome.

    Thanks Chris. I relish the thought of having Color Management in our Suse boxen - something Windows users have had for eons. I am thinking more of mainline users here. Some clever people may have been using the very good Color Management tools in Digikam for example. I am sure many mainline users have experienced the disappointment of printing a nice image only to find it looks nothing like what they see on the screen. My hope is that the new Color Management will put an end to this. Having seamless Color Management from our Scanners to Printers is what we need. Imagine being able to set up a nice graphic in Scribus and printing exactly what we see.

    I for one am very happy to see these developments.

    I have an, as yet unused (in Linux) Spyder 3 on my shelf. Anybody tried that in Linux?

    Kolour Manager is installed and now available in KDE System Settings. Despite having googled this topic I am still looking for answers. According to KDE System settings > Kolour Management, default settings are in place for the Printer, Camera and LCD Monitor. I went for sRGB for the former two, while my monitor is showing a GSM-_edid.icc. So far so good. My ambition is simply to have the colours displayed in my monitor aligned with those on my printer. Has anyone achieved this ?

    Hi all. I did not realize that window effects are now controlled by KDE. Compiz is the only current window manager that has color correction built in but the default install does not use this. Correct me if I am wrong but we will not see any color correction on our desktops unless we are using Compiz. KDE has its own desktop effects and these work well, but no color correction just yet.
