        - Dolphin will launch faster on Plasma 5.23.
        Discover, not Dolphin

          Running KDE with 3 displays (2x24" 1440p+32" 4k) was a pain. KWin didn't respect layout set in KDE settings and in X11 at all. I haven't tried if things become better with Wayland though.
          GNOME is better with such setup even if it places windows outside of view port, funny enough all wrongly placed windows are pure GNOME's apps

            I run KDE with 3 UHD monitors + 1 HD projector (no always on), and it works great... with X11, because Wayland still has issues related to screen selection for krunner and full-screen programs.

              Might be cause you have same size monitors, I have monitors side by side with large one in the middle, all in landscape mode. The 32" monitor is the main. All things functioned more or less correctly, but the one thing moving windows from one monitor to another with shortcuts, suddenly the setup layout ignored and kwin treat display in some strange order, and window from leftmost monitor can appear on rightmost when you expect it to appear in the middle. Layout was at first setup in KDE settings and than with nvidia-settings written to xorg.conf.

                Not only is it great that Nate and the crew keep grinding it out, but that Nate takes the time to let people know what is going on. Great job.

                  Well, the projector does not have the same definition as the monitors, and I have no issue moving windows to and from it. I do not use shortcuts to move, however, so the issue might come from the shortcuts system. I also notice you are using a GPU from the green devil, Nvidia, with their proprietary driver. This is likely to be the cause of the issue ; I have an AMD GPU with AMDGPU (that nameā€¦ but at least it works).

                  And Nate is even answering on Phoronix forum (ngraham), as is bridgman for AMD.
