Is here interesst to implement something with colour management in or
above X during the GSoC?
As I am not a Xorg programmer, I can offer only help in the colour
management details. Supposedly the main part would be for a Xorg
experienced mentor and of course the student involved.
Already available is some information about X colorimetry by a profile
atom. Oyranos is soon releasing a C framework for plugable moduls. I am
just about learning git. Thus GPU acceleration seems not so far away.
My major concern are multi monitor systems, with obviously different
colorimetry. A laptop with an external monitor is a good example. Both
monitor devices can display colours to some degree satisfactory. But a
precondition is clear placing the colour transformation onto the right
monitor plane. My guess is, a layer near X will best know about such
Is this something feasible? What are the preconditions to be meet for such
developing for colour management
