So I have a laptop, I have an external monitor and I’m on the move a lot, so I’m constantly plugging and unplugging the monitor. On my previous distros (Manjaro and Kubuntu), everything got automatically configured — when I plugged in a second monitor, the monitor became the main monitor. When I unplugged, system automatically reconfigured so there was only one screen.
Now, I have the following issues:
— If I plug in the second monitor, I need to manually configure it as nothing happens by default
— If I unplug the monitor, the system will pretend that I haven’t and will act as if the now unplugged monitor is still there.
— If I boot the laptop with both monitors plugged in, they’ll both display same content at 720p (below the native res of either of the monitors).

Kscreen is installed.
