Ubuntu – colord-sane and why does it show up on lsof internet watch

internet connection

My friend is using 12.10 and noticed how the command "colord-sane" shows up on lsof every time he plugs in or unplugs a usb-stick. I tried the same thing on 12.04 (what I use) and colord-sane does not show up.

What is colord-sane? Why is it showing up on 12.10? If it doesn't need internet access why is it even showing up at all on the lsof watch? How would my friend go about stopping it from trying to get on internet if it was something he wanted to stop?

  • colord is a system service that makes it easy to manage, install and generate color profiles to accurately color manage input and output devices.

    It does a lot of things and is deep integrated into the system, see http://www.freedesktop.org/software/colord/intro.html
