In the summer of 2011 I asked the community to help fund a Color Munki Spectro, so i could add support for it into gnome-color-manager. This was successful, and within 3 months it was fully supported in GNOME.
Since then I have bought a Huey myself, and a DTP94 has been gifted to me. Both of these have been reversed engineered by me and have stable colord
This year I asked over 200 people in the Linux community to fill in a survey asking what hardware they own, and what hardware they were planning on buying. The results of this are presented here
Donating will allow me to buy some more hardware, initially for testing before each tarball release, but in the long term for the development of native sensor drivers for colord. I’ve already got a hardware USB capture device, and am very familiar with the various USB protocols used.
The sensors I would like to buy first are the Spyder 2, 3, 4 and the i1Display and i1Pro. I’m doing all of the reverse engineering in my own time, so any help is very much welcome if you’re a hardware hacker who knows what an endpoint is. Similarly, if you have a color calibration device sitting in a desk drawer, unloved, I’d love to add it to my collection.
Any money donated here will just be used to buy hardware, and I’ll blog
whenever I’ve purchased anything new. Thanks.
