App and daemon for display managing

KDisplay is a small display management app. It provides a simple and straightforward UI for managing an arbitrary number of displays.


  • Displays can be repositioned with drag-and-drop.
  • An optimal resolution and refresh rate are automatically selected. Manual override is possible.
  • Displays can be seemlessly “replicated”.
  • The settings of a display is by default remembered globally but can be overridden for specific combinations of displays.
  • Provides additional integration for the KDE Plasma Workspace through a plasmoid and an OSD activated by hardware key for quick configuration changes.
