Yes, I am able to select a different monitor profile even when system
monitor device correction profile is set via colord, actually, I have to,
because I do not even have such an option as "Monitor Profile from System
Settings" in my DK CM monitor profile list... It appears digiKam (i'm
running 3.0.0.) is not aware of colord or something. Maybe it is an issue
with KDE not announcing properly, maybe digiKam not listening, or maybe my
setup in particular... Any idea anyone? Perhaps I'll have to see if it
appears once DK 3.1.0 comes to me via distro upgrade or backports ppa...

Well, I do not have your problem with colord, and I think for now I will
not try removing it. But thanks for the cl commands for setting profile
directly. I'll keep note in case I ever need.
