KDE KolorManager README

The Color Management System (CMS) Oyranos allows the coordination of device specific Informations (ICC profiles) und system wide settings. KolorManager is a KDE Systemssettings component for Oyranos.

Modules

  • kmdevices (Kolor Management Devices - Monitor/Printer/etc. profile setup)
  • kminfo (Kolor Management Information - Displays specific profile information)
  • kmsettings (Kolor Management Settings - Change behavior and policy settings)

Dependencies

  • The v1.1.0 tagged release builds fine using Oyranos-0.9.6 .
  • Actual git should the latest Oyranos from it's git repository. KolorManager gets updated pretty quick to Oyranos changes.
  • Synnefo's libOyranosSynnefo is used for the program logic

Installation

Enter the following commands:

mkdir build && cd build/
cmake ..
make
make install

Run

This build should install a "Kolor Management" icon in the KF5 settings window, under "Computer Administration". An alternative method for running the individual modules would be to type this in a terminal:

kcmshell5 [KMMODULE]     (Where KMMODULE is "kcm_kmdevices", "kcm_kminfo", or "kcm_kmsettings")  

This is handy for displaying debug information through the console.

Build Notes

The following files are installed under each module directory. They are shown here for reference:

MODULE.cpp (source code) MODULE.h (header) MODULE.ui (Qt Designer file) ui_MODULE.h (Qt designer header file - for hand coding purposes) CMakeLists.txt (build instructions for each module)

References

Development

# local debug build
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/.local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-g -Wall" ../kolor-manager
#Possibly prepend the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable to reflect Oyranos...
kbuildsycoca5 # update KDEs internal icon and module cachings
kcmshell5 kminfo & # start

Debugging

echo $!  # obtain process id from bashs most recent process - kcmshell5
KDE_DEBUG=1 gdb kcmshell5  # the variable avoid KDE's crash handler
gdb > attach to process id
gdb > breakpoint kminfo.cpp:line_number
gdb > continue

History

  • started by Joe Simon in summer 2008-2009
  • KolorManager maintained by Kai-Uwe Behrmann 2010-2016
  • KolorServer was maintained by Casian Andrei 2012 (It is now a separate project.)

Known Issues

KMSettings

  • The configuration has to be ported to a Oyranos configure object to manipulate settings and then apply at once. This is currently not possible, as each setting is imediately applied to the Oyranos settings DB.

KMDevices

  • Camera support needs to be outlined first
