Missing Profiles for SoftProof
Posted by Jim Keir on 26 October 2010 09:36 AM
The plugin searches for valid ICC profiles in the following locations:

Windows:
\system32\spool\drivers\color

Mac:
~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles
/Library/ColorSync/Profiles
/System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles

By default it shows only those profiles that are marked as belonging to a printer. You can choose to show all profiles by un-ticking the "Output Only" tickbox, to the right of the drop-down list of profiles.

It may be that the profiles are only currently available to the printing system in MacOS X, but not available for applications to use. This article from Epson, although written for the R360, would be relevant to many other printers:
