GIMP's printer setting implementation has not working

Hi all developers.

I've tired to print IT8 color target with EPSON Stylus Photo R3000 with ICM settings from GIMP but ICM settings couldn't be effected on results. I using a printer profiles that are created by i1Profiler for my printer and papers. And another retouch software can be affected by printer driver's ICM settings.

Printer driver's settings will be manipulated by software implementations, so it's a bug of GIMP. Please fix this.

Color management features are critical for retouch softwares. If GIMP do not have these features then GIMP's value is nothing.

Thanks for the warm words about GIMP being worth nothing.

You fail to mention what operating system this is, and what GIMP version. Without this information, your report is worth nothing.
