    Default KDE To Get Improved Multi-Monitor Handling

    Phoronix: KDE To Get Improved Multi-Monitor Handling

    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...

    I'm an Xfce user, but something like this might get me to make a switch. Awesome!

    A great thing considering setting up multiple monitors in KDE (and GNOME) is a royal PITA and something like having any DE not just KDE automagically configure the 2nd monitor would be welcomed. A control panel for fine tuning the multi-monitor configuration would also be a nice touch too!

    Available now is krandr for doing it manually (includes a tray icon for easy access):

    Sponsored by Red Hat?

    That's interesting. I wasn't aware that they were sponsoring KDE?

    Looks perfect for laptops, but I doubt this will help people with multiple displays on high-end workstations that span multiple GPUs / graphic cards.

    As far as I'm concerned, KDE is the only high-end desktop left, every other project (even KDE to some extent) only cares about all of the tablets they're not even running on.

    They do since years. It's just that Red Hatís support for KDE is dwarfed by their support for GNOME. KDE software is included with full support by Red Hat in RHEL (not installed by default but the only alternative to GNOME).
