    I’d like to know what are the best settings to calibrate my Macbook Pro 2018 13″ + colormunki photo with DisplayCAL  3.6.2 for photo retouching? The display device is recognized as “MacBookPro 15,2 @ 0, 0, 1440 * 900 (Primary)”, the resolution is not correct but there’s no suitable device to select.

    If I run “Calibrate & Profile” I’ll get an erroe message saying “dispcal: Error – Mcv max – min 0.000000e+00 too small.”

    Any recommandations would be appreciated.

    The resolution shown is half the “Retina” display resolution, which is normal for Apps that do not have native “Retina” support like ArgyllCMS.

    For the ColorMunki problem, please attach logs (bring up the log window and select “Create compressed archive…”).

    HI Florian,

    thanks a lot for your info.

    Attached is the zip file containing all the files in “/Users/Username/Library/Logs/DisplayCAL”, and there’s no such a folder named “0install” under “/Users/Username/Library/Logs”.

    Could you let me know what are the relatively “best” adjustments I should use to calibrate my MAC for photo editing? There’s a “Settings” dropdown menu and a bunch of adjustments in Display & Instruent/Calibration/Profilling tab, not sure which ones are well suited for this laptop.

    Thanks again.

    In the log it looks like you’re using non-adaptive measurement mode. Try the default “LCD (generic) Adaptive”.

    Use the “Laptop” preset.

    I tried with the “Laptop” preset and measurement mode set to “LCD (generic) Adaptive”, this time it runs normally without any error, however after all the measurements were completed within 20 mins computing of calibration curves took more than 2 and a half hous. I clicked the “pause” button and “continue” button was gray (not able to click), then I have to cancel it.

    Attached is the sceen shot of the “calibration” window and the log files, let me know if there’s anything I can do.

    Thanks very much!

    It seems the cal file never gets written by Argyll. Please replace dispcal, dispread and ccxxmake in your Argyll_V2.0.1/bin folder with the ones from the attached ZIP archive and try again. Attach the log afterwards. Thanks.

    I tried the 3 files you attached, however if I replace “dispcal” in /Download/Argyll_V2.0.1/bin, DisplayCAL will not be albe to detect both the display device and the Instrument, so I replaced dispread and ccxxmake in /Download/Argyll_V2.0.1/bin, then run “Calibrate & Profile”, but in the end it says “profiling is not finished.”

    Attached is the log files, thanks very much.

    Hi Florian, I tried the 3 new files you attached, this time the DEBUG process seems never to be completed, so I canceled it.

    Attached are the screenshot and log files, thanks very much.

    It fails to shut down the instrument. Please repeat with the attached and attach the logs. Thanks.

    Hi Florian, thanks very much. It run without any error and I got the ICC profile, installed. All done.

    When DisplayCAL/Argyll is updated in the future versions, should I still use the files you attached?

    Hmm, I didn’t really change anything other than adding a lot of debug prints. Please continue using these binaries, and if the problem ever happens again, attach the log. The debug info should hopefully help narrowing the problem down in that case.

    I tried the “original” files one more time, it still does now work and says “dispcal: Error – Mcv max – min 0.000000e+00 too small.” So there must be something changed… anyway, thanks very much!
