Bug ID: 368935
Summary: panel inconsistencies while unplugging/plugging
Platform: Neon Packages
Component: Packages Dev Edition [unstable]
CC: j...@jriddell.org, neon-b...@kde.org, sit...@kde.org
First I want to say it has improved from user edition, it remember panels
position on a single setup, but still there exist some problems with
unplugging/plugging monitors, behavior is inconsistent, I will try to explain
it telling my experience... :)
1. I booted after the install, updated the system, all fine, disabled a weird
"VGA display" that shows here but did not exist, move external monitor
orientation to the left of my notebook, add 2 panels (the left monitor I put
the panel on left, the wright I put the second panel on wright) and reboot.
2. After rebooting, all fine (YAY! User edition did not remember the panels
position still). So I unplugged the monitor.
3. When I unplug the monitors, I see no panel "ok, different settings per
display setup maybe, great, it is more flexible!" I thought. So I add a panel
to my "single monitor setup" at left side of screen.
4. Then I plug monitor again and, well... It remembers my "single monitor
setup" panel... Here start the inconsistency, now I have 3 panels with 2
overlapping , on the left side of the left display.
5. Plug, unplug, and well, fine it appears to remember, so I reboot, and the
3th panel goes to the wright of the second monitor.
Inconsistent behavior, It remember or not settings, they are disconnected? At
the moment it is a mix.
I liked when I thought that plugging or unplugging a monitor plasma get a
completely different set of settings (panels, their positions, widgets, display
monitor settings, position, what is enabled and not), but it need to be well
defined, when plugging, forget panels form "single monitor setup", when
unplugging, forget "dual monitor setup" and restore "single monitor setup".
This is my Opinion, but I will be pretty much happy if plasma stay consistent
any way (remember display characteristic... if it has only one panel, in any
setup this monitor stay the same)
It can be useful to know my external monitor is 2560x1080 and the notebook one
