Description jay 2021-08-13 08:47:08 UTC
A KDE contributer on /r/kde recommended I file a bug here:

Decided to try out KDE 5.22 recently and installed Fedora 34 KDE on a desktop (i9-9900k + RX590 hardware). No customisations done, only changed the desktop wallpaper (located in /home/user/Pictures/wallpaper.jpg). Should also note that I am running plasma on X11.

Everything runs butter smooth and has been really stable. However, there are a couple of annoying issues:

1. I am running two 1080p monitors via HDMI. Every time I reboot, one of the screens would have a black background. Ended up having to create and run the following script at start up to get rid of the black background:
sleep 3
xrandr --auto
xrandr --output HDMI-A-1 --off
xrandr --output HDMI-A-1 --auto
xrandr --output HDMI-A-1 --left-of HDMI-A-0

2. The wallpaper on one or both screens get reverted to Fedora's default wallpaper occassiaionlly after reboot or lock screen. The fact that I need to change it back to what I had set before manually feels really annoying.


Wallpaper reverted to the Linux distribution's default.


User-configured wallpapers for the lock screen and the desktop should be persistent.

Linux/KDE Plasma: Fedora 34
KDE Plasma Version: 5.22.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.83.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
