# How do I solve “Color management: using fallback mode for management”

When I do

import bpy


I get the following message in my console

Color management: using fallback mode for management


It happens everytime I start Python and import bpy, see the shot below

Prior compilation I disabled Cycles, OSL, OpenColorIO, and LLVM from makefile.

However, multiple import bpy statement does not show this error/warning message multiple times. See image below.

Is this normal? Is there a way to get rid of it?

• @ikel I don't think this has anything to do with importing bpy then. – gandalf3 Dec 10 '13 at 23:57
