Linux color management

," putting the need for color management into real-world terms for the average Linux user, outlining current development work on the subject at the application and toolkit levels, and giving example color-managed workflows for print and web production. Color management is sometimes unfairly characterized as a topic of interest only to print shops and video editors, but as Cruz explained at the top of his talk, anyone who shares digital content wants it to look correct, and everyone who uses more than one device knows how tricky that can be. Color management, broadly speaking, is the automatic transformation of image colors ...
(CMS) for other operating systems: to achieve the best possible color reproduction throughout an imaging workflow from its source (camera, video, scanner…), onto imaging software ( CinePaint , Digikam , GIMP , Krita , Scribus ...) and finally its output ( monitor , video projector , printer ...). In particular, color management attempts to support WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) on-screen previewing (soft-proofing) ability for color work such as retouching prior to printing. Linux color management relies on the use of accurate International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles describing the behavior of devices such as digital ...
Changing Directory Listing (ls) Color in Linux and Mac OS X ...
I practically “live” on the Linux command line and one thing that has been bugging me for so long that now I decided to do something about it. On my company’s Linux systems the ls command produces color output, which makes it easy to distinguish different file types. However, the directories are dark blue which makes it nearly impossible to see against the black background. My Solution To fix the problem, my research took me to the LS_COLORS environment variable and a command named dircolors. The solution is to set the LS_COLORS environment variable to control how the ls command chooses its color. I can set the ... market research, surveys and trends
Color Management - bits and pieces
I think we covered most of the useful stuff for monitor calibration. This is a great first step. However, there are a couple of things I want to mention at that stage, which I a) forgot to mention earlier b) didn’t really fit anywhere. Where to get profiles from? OK we talked a lot about getting a monitor profile, but where to get the AdobeRGB and sRGB profiles from? Well, as a free download from Adobe. Schweeeet! By the way, that’s the Linux version. You have to click OK on license agreement and you get an rpm with 14 profiles, including the two we are interested in.

Red Hat, Ubuntu Win Linux Popularity Poll - PCWorld Business Center
Ubuntu and Red Hat are the most used Linux distributions among the 35,000 members of content-management vendor Alfresco's community, the company found in its second survey of trends in enterprise open-source software usage. The surveys help inform Alfresco's technology strategy, according to Ian Howells, Alfresco's chief marketing officer. "It's important for us to know which platforms to test against first," he said, adding, "It's in users' interest to give us good data." Among Linux operating systems, usage of Ubuntu and Red Hat stood at 35 percent and 23 percent, respectively, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Linux applications galore
THE baloney detector on my computer went crazy this week when a reader wrote: “When it comes down to it, I still have to go to Windows to get work done because so many apps are just either not available under Linux or the choices and maturity of the apps are far, far inferior.” The comment left me puzzled. What kind of “work” did this guy do that he just had to run Windows? To put this nonsense to rest, I compiled a list of common applications that you might need at work and specific Linux programs that will do the job. And none of the programs I mention here are by any stretch of the imagination ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
TECH KNOW: Free software for a small office
The most well known open source software is the Operating System which serves as an alternative to the almost ubiquitous Microsoft Windows operating system, Linux. If you are one of those always-wanting-to-spend-the-money types who work in the IT department of a multinational that has billions to spend on IT, you can stop reading now. This article is not targeted at you. But if, on the other hand, you belong to one of the small or medium enterprises that constantly need to justify cost, the question must have arisen before: where can I get XYZ program that will not cost an arm and a leg? Truth is that, in Nigeria, some just ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

A Linux-based Weather Forecasting System for the NWS
In the last decade the NWS (National Weather Service) has been especially active in modernizing its field offices and upgrading its observing systems. Advanced Doppler radars have been deployed across the country, an automated surface observation system has been fielded, satellites have been upgraded and all forecast offices have received a new system to integrate and display the many existing and new observational data sets. Although these systems are relatively new they are already feeling the effects of rapidly changing technology and increasing system requirements. Some of the current technology is becoming difficult to ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
[Gimp-user] Documenting Gimp Color Management
I am attaching a second installment of comments as a text file below. I'm afraid the comments come across just as criticisms, so let me emphasize how much I appreciate what you've already done. Ideally, rather than just complaining about this or that, I should suggest how I would phrase it instead. Unfortunately, I don't feel comfortable about writing documentation of this kind yet, so I would rather just raise points and hope you can figure out what I'm saying and include it in the documentation if it seems appropriate. I'm sure you will do a better job of it than I would at this stage. When I feel ...

Linux color management at AllExperts
This article attempts to help a Linux user get started with a colormanaged workflow. It assumes that the user has or intends to get a colorimeter to profile the monitor. Color management involves using accurate ICC profiles for devices and using applications that are aware of these profiles ("colormanaged"). These applications perform gamut conversions between device profiles and color spaces. Gamut conversions based on accurate device profiles are the essence of color management. To accurately profile devices one needs to use instruments such as colorimeters or spectrophotometers (for monitors) and spectrophotometers ...
Slashdot | Looking for SCSI Linux Scanners
"There's a lot of scanners out there, and I'd like to buy one. I first checked the Ask Slashdot archives and found this , but at over a year old I thought it might be good for an update. I'm looking for a SCSI, Linux supported, color scanner. Although price will eventually play a role in which I purchase (probably up to US $500), I would like to hear comments with emphasis on quality. Speed is nice, but unless it's super slow, I'll go for quality. Deja lists scanners in a poll but it doesn't look like there are enough submissions for a real comparison. I was looking at SANE supported scanners . ...
