    Installed DisplayCAL and did a calibrate and profile for my laptop screen using a Color Munki Display.

    Get this in the terminal:

    About to open dispwin object on the display
    About to clear the calibration
    About to install ‘DH091-156WF1 #1 2016-07-27 05-29 100cdm² D5500 2.2 F-S XYZLUT+MTX.icc’ as display’s default profile
    Argyll ‘V1.8.3’ Build ‘Linux 64 bit’ System ‘Linux #1 SMP Tue Jul 12 11:50:00 UTC 2016 4.6.4-301.fc24.x86_64 x86_64’
    Dispwin: Error – Failed to install profile ‘DH091-156WF1 #1 2016-07-27 05-29 100cdm² D5500 2.2 F-S XYZLUT+MTX.icc’!
    /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/DisplayCAL/colord.py:83: Warning: property match ‘OutputEdidMd5’=’2f16ccd449b5575d65435656d5fb3cb3’ does not exist
    The profile could not be installed/activated.

    and the graphical program throws this up:

    This happens if I try to install for current user only and for system wide. Help?

    Hi,

    are you using Argyll CMS from the distribution repositories? If so, try using the official binaries from argyllcms.com instead.

    sorry for the delay. this kind of got put on the back burner. I guess I was using the ones from the repos. How do you install the official ones?

    It’s as easy as downloading & extracting, then choosing “Locate Argyll CMS executables…” in DisplayCAL’s “File” menu.

    I have no real excuse for not noticing that. Thanks for the heads up. Everything works now.

    Is there a reason why argyllcms is broken in repos? Is this something that upstream has been notified as being a problem?

    I don’t know what distributions are doing, but Fedora especially has been known for recurring breakage as they make sometimes incompatible changes to the upstream version. The safest bet therefore is usually to simply use the pristine upstream binaries.
