colord

colord is a system service that makes it easy to manage, install and generate color profiles to accurately color manage input and output devices.

This functionality is implemented as a system activated daemon called colord. Being system activated means that it's only started when the user is using a text mode or graphical tool.

What colord does:

  • Provides a DBus API for other programs to query, e.g. "Get me the profiles for device $foo" or "Create a device and assign it profile $bar"

  • Provides a persistent database backed store for device -> profile mapping.

  • Provides the session for a way to set system settings, for instance setting the display profile for all users and all sessions.

See the website for more details.
