kdenonbeta/kcmrandr is your friend :-) I guess as soon as XFree 4.3 is out, we 
could use that in kdebase. How about adding a section to "Periphals" with 
"Display" and add kcmrandr, the xfree configurator and kgamma there ? 

PS: We also need a module for setting the XCursor theme and a converter for 
.CUR files plus a set of animated cursors :-))
