    Hello

    I am using the latest MXLinux(Rank No 1 Distro in Distrowatch), I downloaded the debian pkg and it installed fine. Installed Argy as well. Problem though is my Spyder X is not detected. Will there be support in linux for the spyder X please?

    Thank you

    Paulo

    I just realise the auto download of displaycal get the old Argy not the new Argy 2.1.0.

    Anyways now it’s detected, but I get this error. See picture

    Hi,

    you need to install updated udev rules: Menu Tools -> Instrument -> Uninstall (existing) instrument configuration files, followed by Tools -> Instrument -> Install (new) instrument configuration files. Unplug and re-plug your SpyderX afterwards. I also recommend using Argyll V2.1.1 or newer for less annoying usage of the SpyderX (less frequent instrument self-calibration requested).

    Florian’s method has been working well for me for so long. Until I downloaded the latest MXlinux beta which has the Debian 10. First off the displaycal version is old 3.7.4 so I updated it. And the colors after calibrating is just out of place. My advice to those going to debian 10 or MXlinux beta is to not go there yet as it seems it’s not supported atm. Hopefully in the future of the MXlinux stable release it will be much better.
