[ubuntu] ICC loding when X starts

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi everybody, I hope this is the right section, feel free to move if it's the case... I have a Macbook Pro and was surprised of how photos looked different in linux from MacOS... So I discovered the existence of xcalib, copied the icc profile from MacOS and everything looked great. Some days ago I upgraded to Karmic and noted that X starts earlier than before, so that's the question: Is it possible to load an icc profile (i.e. to launch xcalib, simple bash command) when X starts? I want this because loading it when user logs in gives a bad feeling (colours changes from gdm to gnome). I have tried to add a script that execute xcalib in /etc/X11/Xsession.d and gave it a low id (it is named 19custom_xcalib) so it starts before anything. This solves the other issue I had (set the colour profile for all users) but still gives the bad feel (from what I understood it's gdm that launches xsession so every change I make in that direction would be useless). Thanks for anyone that replies (any info about the new splash method would be appreciated) (Hardware)
