Thanks @Conrad C  This fixed a problem I have had with my Canon Pixma Pro 100 for some time.  For Canon the profiles are buried in a Contents Package.

The correct answer did not solve my missing icc profiles in my ColorSync folder. Since I use macOS Monterey 12. X. Couldn't find my surecolor p-800 printer on the their website where the icc profile was listed.

What ”ColorSync folder”?

On Mac OS, this is the path for the package of enclosed profiles installed by the print driver installer:

/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/ICCProfiles/EP1408OL2.profiles/Contents/Resources

A modified version of his solution for a Canon 100 worked for me.   Probably differet or doesnt work for Monteray although it is still working for me in Big Sur.

Epson's installed profiles are not in that location. They are buried deep in a package which the user must open using a contextual menu command. And worse, the ColorSync utility doesn't show this any longer although it once did. I can't recall if this was Big Sur or Mojave but this utility hasn't been fixed or addressed by Apple in many major OSs and is buggy to boot.

Yes, one way to 'fix' some of this is to find the package, remove those profiles and place them elsewhere (there are a few possible locations they can go) but Adobe products should (and usually do) still find them in this package location.

The path for Epson profiles also apparently changed over the years, but the current path provided earlier seem to be correct and confirmed to me by Epson USA. That is where I have found my P800 profiles, once I use the "Show Package Content" command.

I found the content package and copied them to the ColorSync folder. It did not resolve my issue. The icc profiles were still not found in the Lightroom printer folder

I don't know what you mean by LR Printer Folder. Post a screen capture of what you see in the Print Module, after clicking on Other...
