This works!

Calling "xcalib myprofile.icc" and after that xicc "myprofile.icc"and I
get an output of "xprop -root | grep ICC". Digikam has the selector
disabled again, but this time my profile is shown correctly with the
info button.

I have no clue why dispwin does not do the 2nd step on my installation.
