There is lots of work underway in the color management area for OSS systems.  
If you are interested in following this you should join the OpenICC email 
list or perhaps read through the archives.  In a year or so I would expect 
that there will be a significant level of integration of CM tools on Linux 
systems that is comparable to what is currently available on Windows.  Maybe 
even a little more advanced.  The main thing that is holding this back is a 
need for more volunteers to move this forward at a faster pace.  On the 
OpenICC Wiki there is a list of current projects in this area.   If you are 
able to contribute you should contact one of those projects and volunteer.   
I am sure that every one of these projects can use both technical and 
non-technical help.
