XICCD(8)                  (March 2016)                   XICCD(8)

     NAME
          xiccd - X color management daemon

     SYNOPSIS
          xiccd [OPTION...]

     DESCRIPTION
          xiccd is a simple bridge between colord and X. It performs
          the following tasks:

           * Enumerating displays and registering them in colord;
           * Creating default ICC profiles based on EDID data;
           * Applying ICC profiles provided by colord;
           * Maintaining the user's private ICC storage directory.

          It does not depend on any particular desktop environment nor
          toolkit and it should not be used in desktop environments
          that support color management natively, like GNOME and KDE
          do.

          xiccd is usually automatically invoked by your desktop envi-
          ronment via /etc/xdg/autostart and there should not be any
          need to invoke this binary manually.
