Hi @IslandC0der, my naming convention has been criticized by Roman Gilg as being unconventional, so I don't mean to suggest that you should add kwinft to the package name. However, I thought it was inconvenient that kwinft, kdisplay, disman, and wrapland had a dependency chain but wouldn't show up under one search term, so I added the -kwinft suffix so that newcomers would find all the packages more easily. An alternative is just to mention kwinft in the description, as I think most AUR helpers also search that field.

Hi, I adopted both disman-git and kdisplay-git, which are essentially the unstable counterparts of disman-kwinft and kdisplay-kwinft. However, it's a bit confusing, since yours have the "-kwinft" suffix but mine don't.

Therefore, I would like to reach some consensus so as make it consistent; what should we do? Which naming convention do you think makes more sense? If it's preferable, I'd be happy to use yours :)

@jnko make sure all kde components are updated to 5.21 and that you are not using git releases. I had this happen when disman 0.520.1 was released and expected wrapland to be the same version. Another version mismatch seems to be the likely explanation.

I've installed kwinft, kdisplay-kwinft, disman-kwinft and wrapland-kwinft, all v5.21.

Unfortunately I'm not able to configure my two monitors neither grafically nor with dismanctl. I already completely cleard the disman configuration without success.

dismanctl -o

disman: Failed to request backend: unknown error disman.ctl: Received initial config has error. disman.ctl: Invalid config.

Any suggestions about this? Is it running fine on your installation?

BluePeril - done. Try installing again.

Would you please at plasma-framework as dependency? Otherwise the package will not build in a clean environment

On my machine, at least, updating to 0.520.1 does not allow kdisplay to configure displays. Since on of my "monitors" is a VR headset, this means that I had to manually downgrade disman to the previous version in order to get a usable display setup. I imagine this is a niche problem, and most people with multiple monitor setups will be fine with the kdisplay defaults.

@sl1pkn07 yeah, for now you can use the disman-git package. The difference between my packages and QuartzDragon's is just that I try to build the release versions rather than the rolling git updates. Right now I'm using kwinft, kdisplay-kwinft, and wrapland-kwinft with disman-git, and it works fine.

try to build 0.520-beta.0 lead to compile fail
