Some Issues I found with Dual Monitors in KDE

Filed under
KDE
Hardware

I use dual monitors and heavily use the expo compiz plugin (equivalent to kwin’s ‘desktop grid’). However, the behavior in KDE is a bit odd to me.

When I click virtual desktop [1] on the left monitor, [1] on the right monitor zooms with it. The behavior I’m used to in compiz would be to have both [1][2] on the left desktop zoom if I were to click [1].

Sure, this behavior “makes sense” knowing how KDE treats multiple monitors as separate activities but even after setting up matching desktop backgrounds on the monitors, I find it confusing to my workflow.
