OK !

Yes, you are.

The commande :
xrandr  --output LVDS1 --pos 0x0 --panning 0x0 --transform none --output 
VGA1 --pos 0x0 --panning 0x0 --transform none;xrandr --output VGA1 
--scale 1x1;xrandr --output VGA1 --scale 1.000000x0.781250

Today : only the first time
After all time :

At the first time the terminal (konsole) was actif only in the bottom 
off the screen.
All time (1 + 2), the bottom off all windows maximized is under the 
screen. In addition, it is not inaccessible mouse.
