I use Kubuntu 12.04.x with lightdm as login-manager to KDE and the nvidia binary driver with 2 monitors (DVI, TwinView).

My Multi-Monitor config:
right monitor: MAIN monitor
left monitor: second monitor as extension: with mode left of Main Monitor

This config is setup with nvidia-settings, which stores in xorg.conf and in .nvidia-settings in home-dir.
In KDE the config is also stored with krandr as default config.

After upgrading from package gnome-settings-daemon (3.4.2-0ubuntu0.6.2) to gnome-settings-daemon (3.4.2-0ubuntu0.6.3), the xorg.conf settings are ignored/misinterpreted as well as the KDE krandr settings.

When lightdm is started, the second monitor is on the right side, and when logging-in to KDE either clone mode on both monitors is started or the second monitor is on the right side (mirrored).
=> I have to set my desired settings manually again and at the next reboot the problem persists.

I have downgraded to gnome-settings-daemon-3.4.1-0ubuntu1, and the problem is gone. All fine again.

I didn't find the previous version 3.4.2-0ubuntu0.6.2. How can I get this package version?

Faulty package/patch:
  gnome-settings-daemon (3.4.2-0ubuntu0.6.3) precise; urgency=low

1065979 external/internal monitors mirrored on boot when laptop lid is closed

I use this PC at my workplace, so it is important for me to solve this problem.

Thank you for your help!

Best regards, Bernhard
