Create your icc with Spyder express 3

Postby brunod » 01 Feb 2014 20:15

A little hour to spend, disable the screen saver, apt-get install xcalib and plug in Spyder3 express

bruno@solydx-fs:~$ dispcal -yl -R

Code: Select all

Place instrument on test window.
Hit Esc or Q to give up, any other key to continue:
Uncalibrated response:
Black level = 0.23 cd/m^2
White level = 85.91 cd/m^2
Aprox. gamma = 1.62
Contrast ratio = 381:1
White chromaticity coordinates 0.3504, 0.3546
White    Correlated Color Temperature = 4814K, DE 2K to locus =  0.9
White Correlated Daylight Temperature = 4810K, DE 2K to locus =  5.6
White        Visual Color Temperature = 4831K, DE 2K to locus =  0.9
White     Visual Daylight Temperature = 4924K, DE 2K to locus =  5.3
Effective LUT entry depth seems to be 10 bits

Add the .icc file in ~/.local/share/icc/

To add it to your XFCE session, click on:

Settings -> Settings Manager -> Session and Startup -> Application Autostart

Add an item to run at startup using command
xcalib -d :0 -s 0 -v ~/.local/share/icc/SolydX_FS.icc

You can also use this profile for krita, scribus...

Hope it will help :)

Hello !

I try to follow your instructions but at the 1st one "dispcal -yl -R" error "XRandR 1.2 is faulty - falling back to older extensions
Erreur de segmentation" is displayed.

I before installed Xcalib 0.8.dfsg1-2 and argyll_1.6.3-4.

I use debian 8.0.

Can you help me?

Thank you.
Best regards,

Hi,

well I found a solution : I downloaded DisplayCal and in the mensu there's an option to calibrate screen with Sypder 3 :D . It took more than 3 hours, but it's done!
