I wrote what I wrote because of what Àlex Fiestas wrote at the end of and 
because of as yet unfixed which 
taken together suggested a fix in the form of kscreen-1.1 would be 
forthcoming late last summer. Yet, kscreen has only reached 1.07x or so some 
3/4 year later, and KDE versions since 4.10.5 and krandr replacement by 
kscreen remain prone to disregard xorg.conf display configuration settings.

I do different simultaneous user sessions with different display 
configurations, and often find after the prerequisite kdedrc setting to have 
xorg.conf respected:


has been set that it has been undone by a version update/upgrade and I have 
to log out of KDE and either reset it false or restore the whole thing after 
finding both lines missing from kdedrc.

The OP was rather brief. Maybe is where the OP 
should start.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
