"xprop -root  | grep ICC" does not output anything after xcalib
profile.icc. Then I tried "dispwin -I <profile>" and "dispwin
<profile>", but the result is always the same: no atom set. The profile
is loaded correctly using both tools.

The interesting thing is that after I've played with these different
methods of loading a monitor profile digiKam enabled the profile
selection again (shot9.png in the shared folder):
