I'm on Ubuntu Edgy. Which is about to be Feisty Fawn in April. I'm not
sure if that makes a difference.
As I mentioned in one of my posts about color I was able to get okay
color printing from Gimp. I was also able to get okay color from Scribus
using the pdf export option. Although it wasn't as good as Gimp. Not
sure why. I think more testing needs to be done.
The color correction stuff is more then a little confusing.
* There should be a .icc file for my printer
* I believe there should be a .icc file for my monitor
* I was trying to use LittleCMS for color correction
I tried to create a color correction file for my monitor but I couldn't
get Scribus to use it. I'm not sure if I did it right. I wasn't able to
find a .icc file for my printer. Maybe I need to call the company and
ask for one. If they don't have one I'll check out the link you posted.
I hope he doesn't charge a lot.
What's this about the paper vendor and color correction? This is the
first time I've heard of this.
