I don't understand how this works because Photoshop doesn't have a UI for choosing the display profile. It asks ICM "what is the display profile for this display" and ICM forwards that info to various Adobe apps. There's no overriding this. ICM gets it from the Displays control panel, Advanced>Color Management tab where a profile is associated for a display and then set as the default. That default associated profile for a display is what ICM forwards to Photoshop, Lightroom, and a number of other apps that have no GUI for configuring the display profile.

I didn't think Wine was a full VM where you see control panels and such.
