    Default KDE losing multiple monitors configuration after boot

    Hi,

    I'm using two monitors here, my laptop and a Samsung LCD connected w/ VGA cable.
    I do all configuration through "Display and Monitor", setting up screen size of each one, position and primary output.
    But every time I boot my computer, I have to configure all again because KDE loses previous configuration and it comes back in "clone" mode.

    Here some info about my system:

    OpenSUSE 12.1 (x86_64)
    KDE: 4.7.2 (4.7.2) "release 5"

    Display Info
    Vendor: Intel Corporation
    Model: Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller
    2D driver: intel
    3D driver: Unknown classic (7.11)

    Thanks!

    You should be able to create a script that is run at boot time, containing xrandr instructions that set the two monitors; e.g. here's the contents of the script that I use on my laptop with a monitor attached too, a bit like your setup:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    #xrandr --output LVDS --auto --pos 0x0 --output VGA-0 --auto --pos -1920x0
    I run the script using the KDE Autostart
