Hello , I'm a new Fedora user (Sorry if i'm on the low knowledge level)

Been trying to set up fedora (Thats the problem we will be using this year on my course)

When i try to use fedora in my home i have some kinda problem with my dual screen monitor and the desktop options and the things i can do depending on what scree i'am.

First of all i set i up the main monitor , put the screens in the right order.

But when i try to use the desktop on the second main monitor it feels "Capped" there are some things i cant do.

·Cant drag icons on the main screen (I can on the second one) ·The right click menu both from the icons or the desktop is shorter than the main screen. ·When i save a file it appears directly to the second screen. ·Windows on the main screen they feel more like a windows shortcut somehow. ·At some point i feel i have to screens and two desktop , despiste i can move my cursor feely between both screens , and the second screen is the "main desktop" while main screen is the second desktop. ·need to fix this asap cause in class i only have one screen and my the second screen and cant configure or use it (fix it) while in class. (This is the diference between right click in the "main desktop" (Second monitor) and when i do it on the first one (Which looks much shorter)

Thanks in advance.

Hi, welcome to ask Fedora!

Make sure your system is updated. I just tested updated ISO with Plasma 5.10.5 and it was working very well with multiple displays: same icons/menus were on both screens and I could switch primary and secondary displays.

I had some issues with multiple screens back when I was trying out Plasma 5, and ended up resolving them by deleting KDE's config files (~/.config/) and cache (~/.cache/) in Home directory. You can test it first by creating a new user account.

Also check your GPU using inxi -G, for Intel, Plasma mostly work better with modesetting DDX driver.
