10.4: Avoid a fast user switching color profile bug
Authored by: atverd on Jan 09, '06 12:56:46PM

I've tried this after reboot - doesn't work for me. As soon as I login to my second account display looks ok, but can't switch display profiles any more (only beep and nothing else) and then when I switch back to my primary account I'm getting the blinding screen.

10.4: Avoid a fast user switching color profile bug
Authored by: mschaff on Jan 09, '06 05:10:33PM

When you encounter the problem (i.e. a bright mis-colored display), open Terminal and type:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/\
Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/Resources/DMProxy

(all on one line, or paste as shown with the backslashes). This will do what the hint is referring to. I couldn't get it to work as a login item, but it corrected the problem when I ran the command above.

By the way, thanks for this hint. It's great!
