Hi all,
I use Gentoo private and on my work notebook, a Lenovo T450 with a "Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics (rev 09)" card. At my workplace I have two external monitors. Before the switch to KDE5 Plasma on KDE4 everything works fine. A few month ago I switched to KDE 5 Plasma and the horrible behavior starts. At first I configured my additional two Monitors with an own wallpaper and an own Kontrolpannel. I use my notebook display as main screen. When I locked out and locked in again only my notebook screen has a background picture. It is also impossible to change the background picture by click with the right mouse key in the background. When I go to the view settings in KDE, I need to switch off the external screens and switch them on again. If I have luck the wallpapers are displayed again. The kontrol-pannels jump to the notebook main screen and lay on top of each other. I need to drag the pannels to their screens.

After a login via sddm I need to do this procedure every morning. So I'm happy to see the new version 5.7.5 at the weekend. I upgraded my Notebook to the new version 5.7.5 in hope that the erros are gone, but the horrible behavior grows. The kontrolpannel component taskmannager works only on the main laptop screen. After I drag the kontolpannels to the target screen, they are empty. When I try to remove the task managers from the pannels and re-add them, every taskmanager show the windows from the neighbor screen. So the task mannager windowlist is broken since 5.7.5. This KDE Plasma Version is unusable for multihead users.

Other ugly issues:

Are there any solutions for the multihead problems?

5.8.0 has the config issue fixed.

You can get different wallpapers with activities.

Hi asturm,
thx - your tip worked. All screens are open in a correct mode in plasma 5.8.0. The taskmanager in the Kontrolpannel is also fixed and worked perfect.

But now an other thing is broken. All my Kmenu entries that I created with the "kde menu editor" and that have checked "run in terminal" failed to start. For example, I have many
"ssh bla@example.com"
menu definitions with "run in terminal" checked. Normally this ssh sessions comes up in a Konsole, but now I see a short flicker in the task manager - thats all.

The output on the journalctl is:
