I want to use the Filmic Blender color management. I'm not so advanced user, so I don't know where I missed something. I renamed the filmic-blender to colormanagement and placed at the right place (I think): /usr/share/blender/2.78/datafiles. But when I open Blender, it still remains with the standard color management... Thanks in advance for any help.
Under Linux Ubuntu, the colormanagement folder is located here:
To rename it, since it's a system folder, you must be logged in as administrator. It's easy. I opened Thunar file manager and navigated to the folder location. Once there, I right-clicked and chose "open terminal here". In the terminal, the command is:
sudo mv colormanagement colormanagement_oldbackup
Insert your root password and it's done. To place the new folder in here, first place the "filmic-blender" folder on your home folder (in my case it's /home/gigabyte). Rename it as colormanagement. Then, open the terminal and type:
sudo cp -R /home/yourusername/colormanagement /usr/share/blender/2.78/datafiles
Insert again your password and it's done. Remember that you doesn't need really type the whole lines. Use "Ctrl C" to copy from the file manager (right click on the folder/file and, and you'll see the label "location"). In the terminal use "Ctrl Shift V".
The Reluctant Computer
On the computer with Ubuntu 14, I had to allow Blender to access the new colormanagement folder. To do this, you must open the terminal on the folder "datafiles". Then, type:
sudo chown -R yourusername colormanagement
The system will ask for your password and it's done.
Ok, it's a little less easy than Windows, but what can I do? I love Ubuntu...
Maybe you haven't the right Folder and there is still a subfolder like filmic-blender-master in your colormanagement folder, in that case you had to move this to the datafiles and rename it. If you have installed Filmic Blender you have to restart Blender and than change in the Properties tab under Scene under Color Management the Render: View to Filmic Log Encoding Base.
