See “Instrument driver installation under Windows”. Create an installable Debian (.deb) package, much like the standard distutils command bdist_rpm for RPM packages.
Prerequisites: You first need to install alien and rpmdb, create a dummy RPM database via , then edit (or create from scratch) the (you can have a look at misc/setup.ubuntu9for a working example).
To switch between the Argyll CMS and vendor drivers, launch Windows' Device Manager and locate the instrument in the device list. Right click on the instrument and select “Update Driver Software...”, then choose “Browse my computer for driver software”, “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer” and finally select the Argyll driver for your instrument from the list.
A lot of distributions allow easy installation of packages via the graphical desktop, i.e. Please consult your distribution's documentation if you are unsure how to install packages.
Display CAL is written in Python and uses the 3rd-party packages Num Py, demjson ( toolkit), as well as Python extensions for Windows and the Python WMI module to provide Windows-specific functionality.
Other minor dependencies include Py Chromecast, comtypes and pyglet.

Packages made for older distributions may work on newer distributions as long as nothing substantial has changed (i.e. Also there are several distributions out there that are based on one in the above list (e.g. This means that packages for that base distribution should also work on derivatives, you just need to know which version the derivative is based upon and pick your download accordingly.
If the pre-compiled extension module that is included in the sources does not work for you (in that case you'll notice that the movable measurement window's size does not closely match the size of the borderless window generated by Argyll CMS during display measurements) or you want to re-build it unconditionally, run You only need to install the Argyll-specific driver if your measurement device is not a Color Munki Display, i1 Display Pro, Huey, Color Hug, specbos, spectraval or K-10 (the latter two may require the FTDI virtual COM port driver instead).
To automatically install the Argyll-specific driver that is needed to use some instruments, launch Display CAL and select “Install Argyll CMS instrument drivers...” from the “Tools” menu. Refer to your mainboard or firmware manual how to go about this.
Alternatively, follow the manual instructions below. Usually entering the firmware setup requires holding the DEL key when the system starts booting.
