Do I understand this discussion correctly. If I load the monitor 
ICC-profile in the graphicscard with a utility like xcalib or dispwin 
when starting the X11 environment, then there will be no more need to 
use the "Use color managed view"-option from the advanced 
colormanagement settings?

And is this through for digiKam only, or for every application that uses 
colormanagement, as bibble for instance?
