Request ID:

KolorManager is a front end to the Oyranos Colour Management System (CMS).

Colour Management is a important part of modern desktops. It helps 
designers to improve colour usability, artists to predict artwork 
appearance on client computers and graphic professionals to work with 
reliable colours. Oyranos is carefully designed to meet that demands. The 
KolorManager configuration front end is a KDE systemsettings panel for 
manual interaction in the otherwise automated process of configuring 
devices and providing reasonable defaults. The device configuration inside 
Oyranos CMS is a precondition to get DE colour management well working. 
Some applications like Krita or Gimp support already common OpenICC 
standards like the ICC Profile in X spec and will directly benefit from 
KolorManager being inside KDE. Other need further work to integrate 
Oyranos and ICC support.
About Oyranos:

After working on KolorManager and Oyranos in the past months for the last 
Oyranos-0.4.0 release, we feel the stack is ready to review for inclusion 
into KDE.
KolorManager resides currently in Playground/Graphics:

Someone mentioned kdegraphics would be a appropriate target place inside 
the KDE hierarchy.
