Description

KScreen is the new screen management software for KDE Plasma Workspaces which tries to be as magic and automatic as possible for users with basic needs and easy to configure for those who want special setups.

The project is composed of a few components:

  • KDED Module: Saving and restoring configurations
  • KCM Module: Freely configure setups for each set of connected/plugged screens.
  • kscreen-console: Debugging tool

Project Status

The first release (0.1-alpha1) has been released and it is considered experimental.

Documentation

Currently we're lacking a good End user documentation, help is needed.

How to collaborate

KScreen is a KDE project, so we use the usual ways to communicate to each other and to work together (reviewboard, mailist, irc)

Project Page

Mailing list

We're using the kde-hardware-devel mailing list kde-hardware-devel
