Description Paul Smith 2009-06-10 15:10:17 EDT
When I change the display settings, these do not persist after a logout.

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2009-06-12 08:44:39 EDT
How are you changing it?

system-config-display? other?  (The former is preferred, recommended).
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2009-06-12 10:03:35 EDT
This has nothing to do with kde-settings (which are our default settings for KDE). If the settings you set in System Settings (is that where you're setting them?) are not getting remembered, that's a kdebase-workspace issue.
Comment 3 Paul Smith 2009-06-12 11:17:57 EDT
Thanks, Rex and Kevin. I did the settings in System Settings, but these settings were not remembered. After Rex's comment, I installed system-config-display, which was not installed, and I configured my display with it. This procedure eliminated the reported problem. Now, I have everything working as expected.

I do not know why system-config-display was not installed by default.

Thanks for the update.  Going to close this as WORKSFORME.  Please feel free to reopen if the problem returns.
