Here it is. This patch applies and builds on git head as of this afternoon.
1. I am not a cmake expert so I had to hack on qt4/src/CMakeLists.txt so that
USE_CMS was defined for the qt4 stuff. Someone with more cmake expertise
almost for sure needs to fix my hack.
2. I did some renaming in the existing CM code in GfxState to make it clearer.
This is along the lines of the earlier patch I sent to the list but I think
this patch is cleaner.
3. For some reason I can not change the GfxTransform after it has been created
the first time. This fails silently when it happens. This needs to be fixed
but I have not been able to locate why/where this is happening.
4. Someone with Windows and/or Mac expertise needs to write versions of
qt4/demos/viewer.cpp cmsHPROFILE PdfViewer::getProfileAtom () for those other
OS's for this to work on Windows and on the Mac. It might also be useful to
move these functions to a support library so that they are available to anyone
who uses the library.
5. I am not a gkt programmer so I made no attempt to update any of the gtk
stuff to support CM. But the Qt4 code should provide enough clues for a gtk
programmer to do the same basic stuff as I did with the Qt4 support library
and the demo viewer.
6. There are probably additional CM related things that could be done with the
demo viewer. These include:
a. Allowing the user to specify an output profile for the display to either
over ride the system setting or to use if they have not set this up in the
b. Allowing the user to print using a user defined printer (or other device)
c. Allow the user to query the output profile or perhaps including information
about it in the meta data view.
