Bugzilla – Bug 1173953
Colord and xiccd not preinstalled
Last modified: 2021-12-07 11:57:31 UTC
While xfce4 comes with xfce4-color-settings, colord and xiccd were not preinstalled on my fresh tumbleweed installation, so I was not able to apply a color profile to my laptop screen. I think it does not make any sense thay they are not preinstalled, while xfce4-color-settings is. I imagine the same would apply to other DEs too.

Wrong component. I couldn't find the maintainer. Sorry.
What do you mean by "wrong component"?. And the maintainer of what? All color managers on X seem to rely on those 2 packages, if you meant the maintainer of xfce4-color-settings.
Ah, yes I was between "X.Org" and "Other". Is my bug report valid though? Or am I the only one who did not have those packages preinstalled?
Assigning to the XFCE Maintainers; as far as I can see, the other desktops (e.g. GNOME , Cinnamon) -settings-daemon either require or at least recommend colord.
only xfce4-color-settings does not. So this is an issue specifically to the XFCE desktop
Sorry for the very late reply. We added colord as recommended dependency xfce4-settings quite some time ago (2019) but I noticed there is a typo in the spec file. I will submit a fix asap
please split off xfce4-color-settings instead of bloating everyone's installation. xfce4-color-settings can then require colord and might be installed via a "xfce4-complete-with-all-bloat" pattern ;-)

If we do the split for one then we may as well do it for all the other components. Bit of effort but easier to justify than only do it for colord. colord is only 1.3mib after all :)

And I really, really want to avoid Software authored by colord's author as much as possible for personal reasons :-P
