Where does it get the "system" profile ? Does it use the X11 _ICC_PROFILE atom ? (see <http://www.burtonini.com/computing/x-icc-profiles-spec-0.2.html>) If so, have you installed and loaded the profile using dispwin ("dispwin -I profile" to install it, "dispwin -L" to load it each time you start your X11 server) to ensure that the atom is set ? See <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/Scenarios.html#PM5>, <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/dispwin.html#I> and <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/dispprofloc.html#Linux> (Note that there are other ways of setting the atom, the above is the "Argyll way".)
