If you set CM settings for you screen outside digiKam, do not set CM screen
settings in digiKam. Only one must be used.

Currently under Linux, CM is not yet homogeneous in desktop, as it's done
in OSX or Windows. Typically, CM scrren settings must be common for all
application. Nothing must be done in application about it. I hope that CM
screen setings will be improved in the future under Linux.

As it's say in this thread if you set a screen profile in digiKam, and if
you use multi-screen, this profile will be used for all screen. There is
not way in client application to manage all screen CM settings.
