In Lightroom via the Printer module the printer driver settings can be accessed by clicking on the printer settings tab found on the left panel.
Everything can be set from there and the settings will be sticky.

Just note that the settings are sticky to the application.   If you also happen to have Qimage, say, then you have to set them there, too.

Thanks, I think either I goofed (most likely) or it's a bad profile. Trying with Ilford Galerie Premium Plus Glossy and its associated profile works just fine.

I have a specific problem, i use a vendor provided icc profile for a matte paper, and in soft proof in LR the red colors specifically are shown as shifted towards magenta.

What is most likely cause of this magenta shift in the softproof? something wrong in the profile?

Does the vendor allow you to actually use the profile for conversion or just soft proofing? If the later, forget it, you must be assured that the profile is used with the rendering intent you select and those numbers to directly to the printer "as is".
