Warm more than likely = 6500K and Cold = 9300K (usual default)

You can try the 6500K profile, but it may or may not work well. Martia 
Maria of littlecms has told us not all manufacturer provided profiles 
are useful and some are broken. There is a fair amount 
of 'self-defense' code in Scribus and littlecms to handle incorrect 
or broken profiles.

Lprof has full instructions included with it. It is not difficult to 
follow the steps.
