Simple way to solve the problem permanently
Authored by: avinashmeetoo on May 20, '07 12:34:26PM

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.

Was having the same problem with 10.4.10, and this permanently (until the next update?) fixed the problem. Thank you!!
