Bug Description

Affected version: trunk as of July 21st 2011 (r10485). Last tested unaffected version: 0.48.1

CMYK ICC profiles installed in ubuntu package "icc-profiles". Reproducible with Adobe ICC profiles as well.

When I open the CMS tab and tweak the C and Y sliders, they behave as if they were swapped, i.e. the C slider controls the amount of Yellow and the Y slider controls the amount of Cyan.

This is shown in the attached images, where a comparison of how the same SVG looks like in trunk, 0.48.1 and Scribus 1.4.

I could only attach one file... The tested unaffected version is r9760.

Difference to Inkscape 0.48.1 confirmed with
- r9598 (cairo-rendering branch) and
- Inkscape 0.48+devel r19485
(tested on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (i386))

Attached screenshot compares the CMS tab (Fill&Stroke) of the same SVG file (created with 0.48.1) with attached color profile (Iso Coated), opened in Inkscape 0.48.1 (left) and r10485 (right).

I'm using Inscape Trunk. This bug also effects me. Inkscape in Ubuntu Software Center doesn't have this bug.

I'm noticed that the color looks darker to the amount that I can't produce red color.

main problem was that the lcms transform being used was incorrectly switched from RGB to BGR.
