In discussion of the new color management capabilities of CUPS on openICC, Till outlined the basics of its implementation. Terrfic.

However, we (most of the developers of color managed aware apps on Linux), worked hard to define a set of default search paths on Linux/*BSD as outlined here: http://www.oyranos.com/wiki/index.php?title=OpenIccDirectoryProposal

Both Kai-Uwe Behrmann and I have packaged a number of ICC profiles for rpm distros which install these as system-wide profiles. The debian packager of icc profiles also honors these defaults.

Till asked me on the list to file that and ask that the paths be added.

Thanks.

As there is currently no ICC color profile support in CUPS itself, moving this to an RFE for a future CUPS release; related to STR #2896 and STR #3192.

That said, I will note that you probably want standardization of both profile directories and names (e.g. for sRGB and other standard color profiles) to promote interoperability. In addition, /opt/share/color/icc should be added given that FHS and OpenPrinting define an /opt hierarchy...

Fixed in Subversion repository.

I believe the colord support changes that went into CUPS 1.7.0 have addressed the major issues. PPD files can reference the absolute paths to the ICC files, so we are good there I think.

Any search paths for Open Printing filters can include the standard Linux paths for relative ICC filenames.
