    I created an .icc profile using DisplayCAL, but I am struggling to loading it on startup.
    I am on Arch Linux using XFCE, my NEC EX241UN @ 0,0 is connected to my laptop using a DisplayCable.
    argyllcms 2.0.0-1

    I am seeing a few errors:

    [[email protected] ~]$ displaycal-apply-profiles

    [[email protected] ~]$ xprop -display :0.0 -len 14 -root _ICC_PROFILE
     _ICC_PROFILE: not found.

    Once I start DisplayCAL and install the created profile system wide , I get the following colord error:

    ArgyIICMS: OK
    colord: The profile has been imported. You may need to manually activate it under Color system settings.
    Profile loader: OK

    Nevertheless, the profile is now loaded:

    [[email protected] ~]$ xprop -display :0.0 -len 14 -root _ICC_PROFILE
     _ICC_PROFILE(CARDINAL) = 0, 11, 78, 44, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 64, 0, 0, 109, 110

    I read there is some issue with XFCE and colord.
    I tried using xiccd to no avail.

    There is an autostart entry of displaycal in /etc/xdg/.

    What am I missing?

    well, after more trial and error, it seems i have found a solution:
    i created a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart/ containing Exec=dispwin -I /usr/share/color/icc/colord/EX241UN#1.icc

    found here

    That will install (copy) the profile on each login, which seems a bit wasteful. Leave out the -I parameter to prevent that. I’m not a fan of either solution as it seems the profile loader is working correctly (no errors related to loading the calibration). Also note that the root window X atom is not necessarily where you want to look, as XrandR will have the atom set as  a property of the respective output.
