Description Ricardo Ferreira 2011-02-10 03:14:07 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

I have 2 monitors but sometimes i only connect one (when i leave my desk with the laptop).
My default setup (when the 2 monitors are connected) is LVDS1 below HDMI1 but this creates a problem when i leave my desk. 
I disconnect HDMI1 and that screen goes black but i can still move windows there and the mouse is not limited to the upper boundary of LVDS1. There should be a way for me to tell the system that when only LVDS1 is connected, it should reconfigure itself as only LVDS1 at coords 0x0 instead of coords 0x1050 as it is now.

I think Mac OS X has a system like this.

Reproducible: Always

Thank you for your bug report or feature request.

Unfortunately, we did not have a maintainer for the "kephal" component, which is used to manage displays and monitors in the KDE Workspaces.

The "kephal" component has been superseded by "KScreen" in newer releases of the KDE Workspaces. It is compatible with all versions since 4.11, and is also used with Plasma 5. Please check with your distribution how to update to KScreen.

If this issue or feature request is still applicable to KScreen version 1.0.5 or newer, please add a comment. We will then reassign this ticket to KScreen developers.

If you are already using KScreen to manage displays or monitors, and found a different bug or need a specific feature, please create a new ticket for "KScreen" product in this bugzilla using this link: https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=KScreen
