After recent updates to the latest LR Classic CC, PS2019 and Apple Mojave I am no longer able to print using icc profiles from either program.

I have tried:
resetting preferences in LR
reinstalling the profiles both in the root library and user library color sync folders
uninstalling and reinstalling LR
all with no success.

My system was working perfectly with a color managed workflow before the updates. Very frustrating!

I'm hoping someone has another idea(s), or am I now waiting for some kind of bug fix?
thx

I've not been brave enough to upgrade to Mojave just yet.  But this discussion may help you

What specific issue? What do you mean you can’t use ICC Profiles? Cannot access, wrong color?

Thank you all for the replies.

The forum thread was very informative and trashing then reinstalling all the printer drivers did the trick.

I could print but the colours were coming out terribly - it was easy to tell the icc profiles weren't being used by LR. My system works perfectly again now.

Almost need a checklist of things to uninstall and reinstall every time our OS/LR/PS update themselves!

Cheers

Well here's one I can confirm under Mojave: Epson 3880 driver doesn't print colors correctly IF the 16-bit check box is on. Epson needs to update the driver. This isn't an ICC profile issue per se and it's not an issue with Lightroom alone. Epson P800 is fine.
