I calibrated my monitor a long time ago. Today I got a new one and I can
not find how to disable the old profile.
It is loaded every time on boot up.
I would like to delete it and see how the image turns up uncalibrated.

I think xcalib and xicc also can be used to install a system monitor on startup, with xcalib loading the vcgt and xicc setting the system monitor profile.

Also, is it possible that you put a line like this in your xinitrc file, or one of the other files that is sourced on startup? (I run the Icewm desktop, so this is how I load the system monitor profile on startup):

dispwin -c
dispwin -I /usr/share/color/icc/your-old-monitor-profile

XFCE doesn't have a color control panel like Gnome or KDE, so I assume
the only thing that's loading calibration is the dispcalGUI calibration
loader which basically calls Argyll's dispwin, which in turn reads the
profile associations from $HOME/.config/color.jcnf, so you can open that
file in a text editor to see where the profiles are saved, or delete it.

Oyranos and colord can be installed on desktops other than Gnome or KDE.
