Re: How to setup dual monitor in kde?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



i guess you should use xrandr

if you can enable your monitor with xrandr you can create a   a bash script like this

#!/bin/bash
xrandr ...<your option>
xrandr ...<another option>

after you did  save this on ~/.kde/Autostart/

so everytime you load kde it will load your script  you can do this stuff from systemsettings here

I would be grateful for help with this too.  I too am using Kubuntu 12.04 (with KDE 4.8.3).  I use a laptop exclusively.  Whenever I have the external monitor plugged in I have to configure KDE to extend the desktop on to it.  I would like to know if it's possible, and how to, store the configuration of external monitor to the left of the laptop with the desktop expanded onto it (instead of cloned), and have it automatically use this configuration only when the external monitor is connected.

Many thanks
Björn

Hello,

I would like to extend my desktop to my second monitor. KDE defaults
to clone the image of the main monitor on the secondary monitor.
I can setup the desktop the way I want, with the secondary monitor
above the primary one, using KDE System Settings. However, this setup
does not survive a reboot and every time I turn on the computer, I
have to setup the desktop again.
Is there a way to make the dual monitors configuration to stick using
KDE's GUI tools or do I need to create a xorg.conf file and edit it
manually?
I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin).

Thanks,

Marcelo
