    The "Save as default" button should restore the settings after a system start.
    To be honest I've never tried it, because the X default is also the default I want to use for my setup ;-)

      What about two external screens? What if your virtual X size is not big enough for two screens side by side but it would be big enough for one over the top of the other (I'm looking at you, fglrx)? What if I don't want do disable the internal display when closing the laptop for a short time?

      What also wasn't shown: What about window placement? When I disable my external screen, everything is moved to the remaining screen. When I re-enable it, everything stays there...

        That didn't work since 5 years.

          libkscreen does not seem to have any dependencies on anything KDE-specific, although I could be wrong. All I can see are Qt dependencies. (The choice of pure GPL for a library is weird, though.)

            Multi Seat

            It would be nice if these efforts reach the heights of their logical conclusion, which is automagic multi seat goodness.

              Has consistantly worked on my machine for the last 5 years... Might want to try it again or figure out what else could be the issue.

                Works fine here with R600g, nouveau and Intel.

                  But you definitely don't use more than one monitor. Because this bug is confirmed since 5 years for Multimonitor setups.

                    Multiple Video Cards

                    Multiple monitors on the same video card are hit and miss.

                    Multiple monitors over multiple video cards hasn't worked properly with most Linux desktops in years.

                    (For example, just install >1 video card, hook up a monitor to it, and even if xorg.conf is properly configured, it won't appear in Gnome / KDE GUI's to position monitors. Icon dragging between different X screens is a no go although it worked in CentOS 5.8.)

                    If you are putting in the effort to deal with multiple monitors, please consider the case of multiple video cards. (4 video cards X 6 monitors = 24 monitors is a reality in terms of hardware, it needs to be a reality in terms of software as well.)

                    Thanks!
