ddcutil communicates with monitors implementing MCCS (Monitor Control Command Set), using either the DDC/CI protocol on the I2C bus or as a Human Interface Device on USB. A particular use case for ddcutil is as part of color profile management. Monitor calibration is relative to the monitor color settings currently in effect, e.g. red gain. ddcutil allows color related settings to be saved at the time a monitor is calibrated, and then restored when the calibration is applied.

    2017-09-05 - jengelh@inai.de - Clear repeated summary, fix RPM groups, repair description not matching the filelists.

    2017-09-05 - alarrosa@suse.com - Use the sources as distributed in github, which is different from the sources in rockowitz's OBS project - Use automake/autoconf/libtool

    2017-09-04 - alarrosa@suse.com - Don't unset the _unpackaged_files_terminate_build test, which was forgotten from the original spec file. Instead, set --docdir correctly for configure and remove an unwanted file after make install. - Add the %doc line to the library package so it also installs the license

    2017-09-01 - alarrosa@suse.com - Initial release of ddcutil 0.8.4 based on rockowitz's generic spec file
