alternative to krandr tray applet

Sat Feb 22, 2014 8:36 am
hi,

krandr seems to be replaced by kscreen somewhere around 4.11 so I wonder if there now is an alternative to having a tray icon to set your screen resolution. I know it can be done from kscreen application but at times I encounter a situation where I leave a game and my resolution on the destkop is not reset as it should. I was always able to reach the krandr tray icon to reset it, but reaching kscreen on a 320x desktop is impossible.

Maybe there are easier ways that I don't know off ?

thanks

you could use xrandr on the command line
Code: Select all
xrandr -s 1024x768

KScreen includes a tray icon as well (a plasmoid actually).
You can enable it in the "System Tray Settings", right-click on an empty space in the system tray for that (easiest would be the small up-arrow that shows the hidden icons I guess).

Although all this does is launch the systemsettings module when you click on it (you can assign a keyboard shortcut as well of course), so it may not be quite what you want.

thanks, it would be ideal if you could select resolution with a popup there. I made a small script with the xrandr -s and hooked it up to an icon on the quicklauch section, problem solved :)

thanks for you answer
