Redshift might be good, but why can't I customize more than that?

I mean, can I write my own ICC profile, and use here?

There is also Redshift / Night light, but why not turning it on at all times?

This seems like an Ubuntu specific feature and most likely it is customizable.

This seems like a potential solution: help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help...

Have you tried importing ICM by itself?

The page I linked points out that using the settings is an alternative, to double clicking ICM file from file explorer.

You could also try more manual way, by following the Arch linux wiki guide: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ICC_p...
It should apply to your system as well, as under the hood both systems use xorg graphical stack.

I have choices and I can see, as can be seen in the upmost screenshot.

However, I cannot truly tilt color settings to my preferences.

I also have installed DisplayCAL; but I cannot figure how it works at all.

Dark theme used to be uber 1337 because of this reason, you need to dive into source code to fully switch it over. these days its a bit easier, and most even do it for you automagical. Its like how bad do you want it?
