Bullseye - screen layouts not applied

#1 Post by NFT5 »

I've been trying out RC1 and love it...........but:

I have 2 monitors, both 24" Samsung. One, in front of me is the usual landscape orientation while the other, to my right, is portrait. Have run like this through at least the lsst 3 Debian releases with absolutely no problem. On the same machine I have a Buster installation and it works fine, so doubt it is a hardware issue. Using the same drivers, firmware etc in both.

However, in Bullseye, the system seems to forget the screen orientations and the wallpaper for just the monitor that is set in portrait mode. The other one is fine.

So, now the weirdnesses:
When I start the machine the main monitor is fine, but the portrait one seems to be stuck on the KDE splash screen. The mouse moves through it ok, but nothing works. But, if I take a screenshot, everything looks the way it should:

Running xrandr gives me:

If I use the Plasma settings app the right monitor will not display identification. If I change the orientation from left to anything else, it works just fine. Same in arandr. Set it back to the correct orientation, save the configuration and all is good until the next restart.

After saving the configuration, xrandr:

Code: Select all

$ xrandr

And the Plasma Display Configuration screen

The arandr screenlayout script file:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
xrandr --output VGA-0 --off --output DVI-D-0 --primary --mode 1920x1200 --pos 0x720 --rotate normal --output HDMI-0 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 1920x0 --rotate left
It looks like the xrandr outputs have the same settings for both monitors???

xrandr from Buster:

Code: Select all

$ xrandr

Seems the same as the Bullseye ones.

Any ideas what could be happening here?
