    KDE crashes with second monitor


    I upgraded to FC13 via yum and use KDE. As soon as I attached a second monitor KDE crashes. I can still boot into Gnome but would like to keep my KDE. Any help will be appreciated.

    Is Gnome working fine with second Monitor? Are there and display related errors?
    Does KDE work fine with Single Monitor?

    Which Graphics Card do you have?

    Hi there. Both monitors work fine with Gnome. No display related errors. KDE fine with single monitor.

    At the office currently so can't get vga info. However, every time I've had the problem, I renamed the kde folder, set up the panel & desktop etc again. When I then plug in the monitor, KDE does not work.

    FYI - the second monitor is an LG Flatron L192WS
