I've got two monitors and I'm using KDE. I use following monitor configurations:

  • two monitors (one little bit lower than another one) for usual work
  • the beautiful IPS monitor for movies
  • the fast TN monitor for gaming

I don't like to always have to go to display settings, and configure layout manually for each change. Is there any KDE way to store and switch between monitor profiles/configurations?

Disclaimer: I know that I can create shell scripts to switch layouts using xrandr. But, isn't there any GUI way to do this in KDE?

  • I'm looking for a tool like this as well, but nothing for 3 years + 3 months :-( On Windows I use this amazing tool sourceforge.net/projects/monitorswitcher and I can't find anything like it on Linux... shame Linux isn't supported because of fragmentation. – Angelos Pikoulas May 11 '20 at 19:00
  1. disable kscreen

  2. create appropriate xrandr scripts using arandr

  3. create desktop or toolbar links to the scripts
