issue when using two monitors on KDE/AMD64
« on: 2013/12/23, 13:51:21 »
Setting up two monitors in systemsettings fails on first attempt when trying to setup HDMI2 left of HDMI1. Setting it right of HDMI1 works.
Switching after first failed attempt back to "clone mode" and then again to "left of" solves the issue.

HDMI1 1980x1020, HDMI2 1980x1200. HDMI2 set as Primary output

Different behavior on two installs:

First: Both desktops seem as being displayed one over the other on the left monitor (HDMI2) and HDMI1 went black and unresponsible.
 Siduction Logo on bottom of screen appears two times, one on top of the other.

Second install: HDMI1 and HDMI2  both display the desktop image but on HDMI2 the lines on bottom, region between 1020 and 1200, stay blank (white). Switching to clone and back solves again.
