As I noted elsewhere, I have no program xicc under Fedora 9, which is
what I use for my primary machine.  xicc is an Ubuntu package, which
I've now downloaded to a relatively new laptop running Ubuntu 8.04.
(I'm still not comfortable using Ubuntu, and the only display I have for
it presently is the laptop display.)  For Fedora, it is apparently moot
since dispwin -I xxx,icc can do it.  Apparently, dispwin -L  can also do
it, but I don't understand that presently.
