I'm having a play with KDE 5 and it seems to run ok but I'm having strange problems with my dual monitor set-up. The fist time I ran it, the dual head ran perfectly but, unfortunately, ever since it has used monitor 2 as a mirror of monitor 1. When I go into settings the display is listed when I select 'primary display' but the icon for the monitor doesn't appear above it. The monitor itself is connected by displayport, does anyone else have this problem?
The monitors work perfectly as dual-head on lightdm and any other desktop enviroment, it's only Kde5 that's problematic, am I missing something or is this a bug?

Try dragging and dropping one of the monitors to a different area. This might reveal that the second screen is located under the first and that is why it is mirrored. This same thing happened to me and confused me also.

Many thanks, didn't even realize they were draggable!
