10.4: Avoid a fast user switching color profile bug
Authored by: blackstarliner on Jun 09, '06 12:38:38AM

I came across this bug within 2 hours of starting to use my new 166 dci mini (I'm a newbie switcher)... My situation involved switching an admin user to standard - as soon as I did this the bug appeared on that now standard user's screen. After reading this hint and looking at both mine and the identical machine at work, I found that the colour sync profile was indeed at the root level, not under the user. I wondered then whether the standard user doesn't have rights to the colour sync profile at that level (I'm a newbie, so I don't know). I checked the colour sync profiles for both users (admin and standard) and both now had the default rgb profile selected and not the monitor's profile anymore. Making the standard user an admin again and restarting cured it. The machine at work, with all admin users, has never had this problem. So maybe part of this problem is with switching an admin to standard. I am going to set up a standard user tonight from scratch and see what happens. Just my 2c.
