Hi there, I purchased a Canon Pixma iP8760 A3+ printer (also known as iP8720, iP8750 etc in different markets). I’m using Rawtherapee on Linux Mint 19.2 x64, editing on a Dell U2711 calibrated monitor, and have installed the Canon Linux drivers from their website - the printer is working perfectly, and using Canon papers and selecting the same paper type when I print gives a very accurate reproduction of the colour and detail I see on-screen - excellent!
Canon papers however are much more expensive than other makers, so I bought a 25 pack of Ilford Smooth Pearl 310gsm photo paper, and tried printing using a Canon paper default that by description would seem similar - it came out perfectly sharp but the colours are quite a bit darker and more muted than I hoped for compared to the on-screen appearance - it would be nice to get the colours corrected to how they appear on my monitor.
So…I downloaded an ICC for the iP8760 with Smooth Pearl paper from the Ilford website, in the hope that can be installed and I can simply choose that paper type from the list before I print, but I cannot find anywhere to place the ICC file so it appears in my list of papers when I go to print something. Can anyone shed some light on what I might need to do to get the Canon print driver finding or using that ICC, or if it is at all possible? If it isn’t I’ll simply boot into Windows and print from there.
