A favour, my geeky friends:
gnome-settings-daemon and colord-kde create an ICC profile based on the color information found in the EDID blob. Sometimes the EDID data returns junk, and so the profile is also junk. This can do weird things to color managed applications. I'm trying to find a heuristic for when to automatically suppress the profile creation for bad EDIDs, such as the red primary being where blue belongs and that kind of thing. To do this, I need data. If you could run this command, I'd be very grateful.
for f in $HOME/.local/share/icc/edid-* ; do
curl -i -F upload=@$f http://www.hughski.com/profile-store.php
This uploads the auto-EDID profile to my webserver. There is no way I can trace this data back to any particular user, and no identifiable data is stored in the profile other than the MD5 of the EDID blob. I'll be sharing the processed data when I've got enough uploads. If you think that your EDID profile is wrong (see http://blog.pcode.nl/2013/04/14/display-profiles-generated-from-edid/
for details) then I'd really appreciate you also emailing me with the "Location:" output from CURL, although this is completely optional. Thanks!
