I have two photometers connected: A Datacolor Spyder 3 and an X-Rite Colormunki Photo. I’m using OpenSUSE Leap 15.0 and DisplayCal 3.5.3.

When i try to calibrate using the Colormunki, Calibration aborts as it seems to read from the Spyder, but expecting the output format of the Colormunki. Summarizing the log:

  1. My impression was that DisplayCal calls several Argyll tools in a loop, and each tool in turn does a device discovery and uses the first suitable device it finds (which probably isn’t always the same for some obscure reasons). I also had the impression that the workflow could speed up significantly if the tools would not need to search for the device each time (by specifying the device path, maybe). Especially when measuring several hundred colors…
