10.4: Avoid a fast user switching color profile bug
Authored by: aca on Feb 10, '07 02:15:07PM

huzzah! yes, this hint still works for me on a macbook pro, 10.4.8—it fixes a reeeeeeally longstanding annoyance. :)
Other hints above about permissions didn't do it for me--though it did help me notice that in my /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays directory, the .icc file (Color LCD-4271800.icc) was *disappearing* when I fast user-switched back from my second account. Running DMProxy caused it to reappear. (This corresponds to the fact that in my display preferences, the ColorLCD option disappears and that's why I'm stuck back on GenericRGB)
Maybe creating a local "backup" copy of the .icc file in my own Library would indeed help, but I guess that would be needed for each user.
Would be nice if the file didn't get zapped in the first place, but for now I at least have a quick command to avoid needing to reboot.
