Acer H274HL ICM ICC profile file
Turns out that Acer provides a .icm and .inf file for my H274HL monitor, as the zip file that they call "monitor drivers". That .icm file is attached.
However, I never manage to get it to import in gnome-control-center 3.12's color settings.
after clearing ~/.local/share/icc/, I tried importing using gnome-control-center. Saw this in the terminal:
(gnome-control-center:7253): color-cc-panel-WARNING **:
failed to get imported profile: The profile was not added in time
...but the file is copied to ~/.local/share/icc/H274HL.icm !
But it never appears in the available choices of profiles to choose from, even after restarting the gnome control center.
I also see these warnings all the time in the terminal:
(gnome-control-center:7335): color-cc-panel-WARNING **: /var/lib/gdm/.local/share/icc/edid-bac55489a441847ba28d0caccecfc9cc.icc is not usable by this user

Kinda confused why gdm is coming into the mix; can you describe your system and set up a bit more please -- thanks.
Hmm, this is Fedora 20 64-bits with your GNOME 3.12 repo. What other information would you like me to provide?
So, as I said this was on Fedora 20 with the GNOME 3.12 COPR... but testing with the official GNOME 3.14 release test ISO image today, I'm not encountering this particular issue there.
