       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.
