Monitor Position Settings not remembered (& buggy)

Sun Feb 11, 2018 2:11 pm

Hi Solus community,

Any ideas, how to fix the following issue? Or how to apply a temporary workaround?

I have trouble with the options in "Settings" -> "Devices" -> "Displays":
  1. The settings with the position of my monitors is gone after every reboot, so I have to re-position them.
  2. The drag & drop positioning is very buggy: e.g. I switch the position of the displays (which is also difficult, because the drag & drop is working wired), but then the apply button disappears (see image below).
If I remember correctly, I had both issues in Arch Linux with Gnome until first half of 2017, then it got fixed. My setup is: 1 Notebook in Docking-Station with 2 external monitors attached. I only use the 2 external monitors, while in Docking Station.
