Installed from: Compiled sources
The X Resize and Rotate extension just went into the XFree86
CVS in the main server.
This allows the screen size to be changed dynamically,
and optionally, the screen rotated and reflected. (at
You may want to allow users to set an initial screen size.
Nowadays, the 'krandr' Control Center Module sets the XRANDR setting to whatever the user configured in KDE's Control Center upon the KDE session startup. Thus, the screen size and orientation are per-user.
I suggest marking this bug WONTFIX, since the issue is already solved elsewhere.
there is a world beyond kde, so i will not close this.
BTW, I think this is the same as bug 4860[0,1,3]

Even in KDE, the operator may be unable to use the desktop in the first session because the default resolution is too high or because the screen flickers (note that KDE does not auto-adjust font resolution to monitor resolution).
You can try something similar to this. I have this shellscript in both of these files and it sets the way I want it. I use fedora by the way. If you use Ubuntu the you can put this in your .xprofile and put this file in your home directory,
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 --rate 60
#Laptop right extra Monitor Left
#xrandr --output VGA1 --left-of LVDS1
#Laptop left extra Monitor right
xrandr --output LVDS1 --left-of VGA1
#This is to set your primary monitor.
#This sets your laptop monitor as your primary monitor.
xrandr --output LVDS1 --primary
#This sets your VGA monitor as your primary monitor.
#xrandr --output VGA1 --primary
