Configuration and usage of multiple monitors with KDE.


Obtain a multihead configuration (Laptop LCD + at least one external monitor or multiple monitors), have only one display connected at first.

How to test

  1. Log-in to the KDE session and following that connect all the remaining monitors. Run SystemSettings and go to the Display and Monitor module. Choose to enable all monitors by selecting an 'Auto' size for their resolution. Select the display that appears rightmost to be the 'Primary output'. Apply and accept the configuration.

Expected Results

  1. Screen should now cover both displays allowing you to transfer mouse seamlessly between them. The main panel - the one with thr kickoff menu and the tray area should be present on the rightmost monitor.
