KDE 4.10 looks more and more promising. To the new notification plasmoid written in QML, which we talked about a few days ago, is now added the new interface of user for set up screens and monitors.
And although the current tool fulfills its mission, the truth is that it already needed an in-depth review, so KDE developers have started working on it. What excites you the most? what KDE will finally remember the previously connected monitors, So users will not have to set up the same monitor over and over again.
This way, if the user connects, for example, an external monitor to their laptop, KDE will automatically place them on the left side of the notebook screen; or if for example the user connects a projector, KDE will then clone the screen automatically. And of course everything can be configured by the user according to their needs.
New graphical interface
The screen configuration module, written in QML, Has received a code and face wash.
users they will no longer have to set up their monitors using drop-down lists and selection items, now they will be able to do so interactively directly on the screen to set up, selecting its position by dragging the screen to the correct place, as well as its orientation and setting which screen is the main one. Other options, such as screen size and update, are still listed separately, although the goal of the developers is to have all the settings available directly on the screen being configured.
Although everything looks much more attractive, the goal is that the screens can be easily configured after connecting the monitors in a simple way, always offering advanced options for users who need them.
Improvements and more improvements
Another issue that has been given special attention is on which screen new windows open, which doesn’t always work well right now. The developers have noted that with this update the windows and dialogs will finally be shown where they are supposed to do.
They also plan to write a small effect for KWin that hides Plasma flickers when changing the settings of a screen. This in order to have one smoother transition facing the user.
The new screen management module is expected to arrive in KDE SC 4.10, although it is not yet certain.
