this one works on iBook G4
Authored by: grzesieko on Apr 26, '07 05:01:34PM

First of all I want to say hello to Mac OS X Hints community because I'm new here :) It is great that there are people who can help you resolve the problem. This site is very usefull!

I'm not advance Mac user but after reading your posts I did something like that and it works on my iBook G4:
First of all, I have two accounts - one with "admin" rights and one "standard". Ofcourse I had the same problem with missing LCD profile after returning (from standard account) to my admin account.
After restarting computer I logged in to my "admin" account. In the Display settings I did callibrated profile using LCD profile with exactly the same settings, then I selected it. Next I did a copy of file (LCD profile callibrated) from my user(admin) Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ to my desktop and using a DropBox I moved it (a copy) to a standard account.
I logged in to "standard" account. In the user(standard) Library I had to create ColorSync folder and Profiles folder in it. Then I moved my LCD profile callibrated inside Library/ColorSync/Profiles and had to go back to ColorSync folder to open Profiles folder info. There I've only pressed a "Apply to enclosed items..." button to fix the file acces rights. After that I could chose a new LCD profile callibrated from Display settings and it fixed all the problems.

Now I can freely change the accounts and always have right profile for my screen. More of that, my original LCD profile is always on its place and stopped disaper.

Sorry all of you for my english. Hope my hint will be helpfull for someone.

Simple way to solve the problem permanently

Important: For this tip to work, you must first reboot your Mac so that the missing profiles are recreated inside /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays

The tip by Skippy kangaroo works great and seems to solve the issue permanently. Essentially what is needed is to change the permission on all files found inside /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays to rw-rw-r-- from the default rw-r--r--

You can do that using Skippy kangaroo's technique or by opening a Terminal and typing (if you are an administrator):

sudo chmod 664 /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/*

You will be asked your password and the problem will be solved.

Bug STILL present in 10.4.10! Looks like it'll _have_ to wait for Leopard :-(

Unless they fix it in a 10.4.11 release :D

I should mention that I had previously used skippy's technique to fix this, but the system update brought it back. Launching DMProxy fixed it for me this time.
