    Default How to get the menu/start?

    It have switched from an nvidia to a radeon video card. I have installed xf86-video-amdgpu and made sure that I have the latest kernel-firmware.

    I have 2 screens and now I can't get the left screen with the start menu and thew system settings. They are on the left in the never, never land.

    xrandr recognizes both screens:

    Code:

    How can I get to the system settings to rearrange the monitors? I'm missing the left part of the desktop that has all the icons and the panels

    Thanks

    Code:
    kcmshell5 kcm_kscreen
    will start the display settings.

    Code:
    kcmshell5 --list
    shows all the modules available

    I've found that when you can see only part of the screen, the monitor may need to be adjusted (for example the screen might be so far to the left that the left part is off screen and there might be a large border to the right of the display).

    DisplayPort-0 disconnected
    Try to use DisplayPort-0.

    DisplayPort connectors are hot-swappable.
