Description of problem:
When a non-default color profile has been selected for a display, it is not actually applied during KDE startup. I have to use the System Settings --> Color applet to "toggle" the display's profile to something else and then back to the desired color profile, at which point it is actually applied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the Color applet to select a visually distinctive color profile for
a display. ("Test profile: Blue" seems to work best.) Note that the
display immediately looks bluish, because the selected color profile has
2. Log out and log back in to KDE.
3. Note that display does not have a bluish appearance.
4. Open Color applet and note that "Test profile: Blue" is still the selected
profile for the display, even thought it's not actually being used.
5. Select the default profile for the display and then re-select "Test
profile: Blue". Note that the display once again appears bluish.
Selected color profile is not applied at KDE startup.
Selected color profile should be automatically applied.
GNOME does not suffer from this issue. The selected profile is used automatically (even if it has been selected in KDE).
New release (fixing this bug and others) pending, stay tuned :)

Hmm, I don't see anything in Koji. I hope you're not planning on waiting for a new upstream release.

SPEC file to build from upstream git
I don't have any confidence that there will be a new upstream release any time soon. Here is a SPEC file to build from the current git snapshot, which fixes both this issue and 956333.
Yes there will be, I have only a few TODOs pending before I do one.

I am happy to see that my scepticism was unfounded. Thank you, Daniel!
