i am not certain what all color profiling needs. i have been following
lcms mail list and still do not understand it.
i have been able to use gimp and templates to make web pages and i have
planned to make LaTeX pages, however my time seems to be almost up.
carol.gimp.org is down right now -- for whatever reason, but i put a
screenshot of a color dialog that has appeared in the new gimp. i am
not certain if it meets your needs, but i would be curious to know how
it fails to.
the way to get this dialog in your gimp would be via the dialogs menu;
it is called "Colors". as you can see from my screenshot, it is
truthfully, if you can print an html template you can easily print a
LaTeX document. if you would be interested in seeing my scripts
(python) send me a note and i will provide them for you.
