This test case tests whether creating a color profile for a monitor in gnome-color-management using a hardware color calibration device is successful. It requires a hardware color calibration device which is supported in Linux.


  1. Remove the Package-x-generic-16.pngargyllcms package if it is installed
  2. Ensure the Package-x-generic-16.pnggnome-color-manager package is installed
  3. Remove any previous configuration by deleting the ~/.config/gnome-color-manager and ~/.color directories
  4. Ensure no color calibration hardware is connected

How to test

  1. Run the profile management tool: on the system menus, System / Preferences / Color Profiles
  2. On the Defaults tab, ensure the box Apply display correction is checked
  3. Plug in your (supported) color calibration device
  4. On the Devices tab, select a connected monitor from the list, and click the Create profile for device button
  5. If asked whether to install packages for device support, say yes
  6. Follow the instructions provided for creating the profile

Expected Results

  1. The Create profile for device button should be inactive when no color calibration device is connected, but active when the color calibration device is connected
  2. The Package-x-generic-16.pngargyllcms package should be installed during the profile creation phase
  3. An appropriate profile for the device should be created and applied when the profile creation process is complete
