Description of problem:
I'm using rawhide on my Dell Inspiron Notebook with an i915 chipset.
The integrated monitor has a standart resolution of 1280x800. I attached an external monitor with a standart resolution of 1280x1024. I typed into my xorg.conf 1280x1024 which works great for me in gdm and gnome. When i run KDE the taskbar is in the height of die 1280x800 resolution.
When I start systemsettings and go to Display the resolution changes to 1024x768. When I want to set the resolutions to 1280x800 for the internal and 1280x1024 for the external monitor i'm not able to click apply.
I don't really know if this is a problem of kde-settings, but i dont really know where to put it.
I will add 2 screenshots (before starting systemsettings->display and one when i want to klick on apply)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide on a Dell Inspiron 1300 and an external monitor attached
2. start kde
3. start systemsettings
cant set the resolution
internal monitor should have a resolution of 1280x800 and the external monitor should have a resolution of 1280x1024. if this isnt possible the "whole" resolution should go back to 1280x1024 and the taskbar should be in the right height.

i read the other bug. i think this is the one with the taskbar problem.
i think i described two bugs in one report...
the bug that i cant change the resolution because i cant click on "apply" isnt
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Now that F9 is official and KDE 4.0.5 has been pushed out is this still an issue?
Looks like it still happens, as per:
krandr is pretty flaky for me too (in kde-4.0). I'll have to double-check, but
I'm hopeful this (as well as related xinerama issues) will be sorted out in kde-4.1.
bleh, krandrtray still flaky for me using kde-4.0.83 (kwin crashes on resolution
Anyone had a chance to see if this is still an issue with KDE 4.1?
Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.
Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Definitely fixed in 4.1.1, maybe 4.1.0 already.
