My Linux experience is roughly a 4/10. I'm running the latest Debian-Wheezy install, and I've been having some trouble with the stock KDE display/monitor manager (to clarify as these terms seem to converge - referring to the utility that manages the monitors, resolution, etc.; not KDE itself). From googling the issue, I'm not alone in having problems docking the laptop, trying to run on two external monitors, etc., and the display manager freezing up.
I've found a workaround for the application locking up, but it's kind of annoying, and I'd like to see if there's another display manager out there I can use. I've never replaced a core function in a Linux distro before, so A) I'm looking for some feedback on the best alternative(s) out there to the stock display manager, and B) Need some help in removing the current utility from the environment. Any help is greatly appreciated.
