    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.

        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!

              i don't beleave that you using the kde tools and xrandr. It works with only one display but with two it doesn't restore the settings.

                A new screen manager is being worked on for the KDE desktop to dramatically improve the multi-monitor experience by making it work "auto-magically" or at least be "super simple" to configure...

                Except for some of the display options it looks like Gnomes setup.
                You drag the monitors around so that they match their physical configuration and you can set things like primary monitor, resolution, etc. Also, it saves the setups so that when it detects those inputs again it automatically uses the setup you used previously.

                  I use two monitors and only krandr for configuration (no xorg.conf). I think you need to check your setup.

                    Do you change the Settings from the Displays like resolution, primary or position? And i don't have to check my settings by an confirmed and from kde accepted bug.

                      I'm not the hugest fan of KDE, but after watching this video KDE clearly has far superior multimonitor support compared to any of the other DE's.

                        Yes. It works, really.

                            This program is included in the Fedora 19 Beta, if you use KDE as your desktop. It looks like multiple video cards and multiple monitors is working with it using the nouveau driver. Seems to work perfectly so far...
