15.0 > Graphics > xcalib (0.10)

Xcalib is a simple application to set ICC color profiles. This is
frequently required in professional graphic and VFX environments to
maintain consistent color throughout the production pipeline.

By deault, this SlackBuild script builds the 'xcalib' target,
suitable for Intel and Nvidia graphic processors.

If you want to build xcalib for use with AMD proprietary
FGLRX drivers, start the build script with a leading variable:

GPU=fglrx ./xcalib.SlackBuild

** I don't have access to an AMD GPU, so this is UNTESTED.

Sample ICC profiles are included with this build, but you should use an
ICC profile for your monitor created by a spectrometer.

An open source spectrometer is available from

Common industry ICC profiles can be found here on in
the icc_profiles packages.

Using xcalib is as simple as:
xcalib display :0 /usr/share/color/icc/foo.icc

To make that automatic, add that line to your .xinitrc file.
