       cups-calibrate - ESP CUPS Printer Calibration Tool




       This program allows you to calibrate the color output of printers using
       the Gutenprint CUPS or ESP Print Pro drivers.

       Please note that this program only works with the  Gutenprint  CUPS  or
       ESP  Print  Pro  drivers.  If  you  are  using  the  Gutenprint  stp or
       ijsgimmprint driver for GhostScript or the drivers for  the  Gutenprint
       Print plug-in for The GIMP, the calibration will not work.

       These  drivers  are identified by the text CUPS+Gutenprint or ESP Print
       Pro in the model description displayed by the CUPS web interface, KUPS,
       the ESP Print Pro Printer Manager, or printerdrake.

       To  make  a  calibration profile for all users, run this program as the
       root user.  The program displays  a  series  of  prompts  which  should
       simply be followed.
