Actually, it seems that you are talking about the XRANDR Output property
atom, rather than the root window atom ?
About this; in the near future systems will be migrating from X11 to
Wayland (Fedora 25 already defaults to Wayland, other distros will
follow) and so setting X atoms is no longer going to work. Even with
XWayland (the compatibility "wrapper" that provides an isolated
xserver for the app) you can't use the root window as it's isolated
from the other windows. I think most applications that want to know
what profile to use are now using either libcolord, or more commonly,
the colord DBus API.
