Description Frédéric 2014-07-20 21:57:10 UTC
Description of problem:
I have installed a color profile (called "P170HMx, precise matrix") for my display. This is what I see in KDE color settings:

Devices
+ Clevo - P170HMx
  + Default: P170HMx
  v P170HMx, precise matrix
the installed profiled is ticked and when I start a KDE session, this profile is applied but only for a few seconds and then the default profile is applied automatically. However, even if the default profile is automatically applied, the installed custom profile is still ticked in KDE color settings.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
colord-kde
Architecture        : x86_64
Version             : 0.3.0
Révision            : 2.fc20

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a profile et select it so that it is applied
2. leave the KDE session
3. start a new KDE session

Actual results:
the custom profile is applied only for a few seconds


Expected results:
the custom profile is applied for the whole session.


Additional info:
have nvidia card + driver

The "profile is applied only for a few seconds"... what happens to make you say that?

Comment 2 Frédéric 2014-07-20 22:14:23 UTC
I just removed the nvidia driver and the problem disappears. Seems related to the nvidia proprietary driver. I filed a bug:

My wallpaper is a picture I took with my camera and I know very well when the profile is applied or not. The difference is huge.

Thanks.

let's assume it's an nvidia issue (cantfix) until there's evidence to the contrary.
