If I load a profile with dispwin -I, is it really neccesary to configure the same profile in gimp, firefox, geeqie... any color managed application? Isn't it redundant?It should be redundant if they use the ICC Profiles In X Specification <http://www.burtonini.com/computing/x-icc-profiles-spec-0.2.html>. If they don't follow this, then they will have some other way of configuring color management.
http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/icc_profiles_in_x_spec is the canonical page and as well mentioned here: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/OpenIcc#Specifications kind regards Kai-Uwe Behrmann --developing for colour management www.behrmann.name + www.oyranos.org
If they don't follow this convention, I'd suggest reporting it to the application authors as a bug. Graeme Gill.
