How to install little cms?
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:01:36 am »
Hi everybody,

I'm new at Scribus and I'm looking to print my document. Because I want to use ICC profiles and to convert colours into CMYK, I'm trying to install lcms. The problem is that I don't know what to do after downloading and opening the .zip. Found nothing on the internet except that I have to install lcms libraries. But where? I'm using Windows 7.
Would be great if anybody could help me  ;D
Thanks!

(sorry for the mistakes, I'm doing my best!)

Hello Nermander, thank you for your answer!
Trust me, I will never post on a forum without trying to find something with google :D
Thank you for the link: same problem as before, I don't know what to do after having downloaded it! Finally, because I've got Scribus 1.4.X, I don't need LittleCMS (shame on me, but this made me confused http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/R%C3%A9cup%C3%A9ration_et_installation_de_profils_ICC it says that the second C matches with LittleCMS!).
Now, I've downloaded the 4 lprof programs. I'm trying to create a monitor profile but it's not progressing at all...
Thank you

Did you try the Precompiled binaries for Windows?

Yes I tried it, but I don't know what to do with the files? Here's a screenshot: http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=560095precompiledbinaries.jpg
