Quoting Kai-Uwe Behrmann <ku.b@xxxxxx>:
Personally I did not test Compiz-0.8 with Gnome but KDE. As stated, my goal is to provide a ICC colour managed experience. Compiz is just a vehicle for that and likely not best integrated into all the available desktops.

Integration of ICC support into KWin and GNOME shell is of course prefered.

I was under the impression that the gnome desktop has this handled already, using gnome-color-manager and colord (so you should really only target kde with this)

That is no correct. A CMM like lcms, a CMS like Oyranos is a precondition for a ICC colour management. But these are not sufficient conditions.

CompICC is currently the _only_ code for whole screen ICC colour correction on Linux.

Gnome has, like KDE, a CMS and a front end to each CMS, but that alone does not change much on the screen. There needs to be some more integration bits. The CompICC plugin provides these for Compiz much like CUPS and Ghostscript provide the CM integration for printing.

kind regards
Kai-Uwe
