yes it's that one. it should be a xrandr setting center for kde4. it also
has a system tray plasma applet that is called krandrtray. it was able to
set up multiple monitors and use them via xrandr. it also has a panel for
if it breaks xorg then i think that there is something wrong about the edid
read from the xorg. try looking into /var/log/Xorg.0.log and into
/home/<your user>/.xsession-errors file and see the warnings inside there.
if not these 2 logs might help you understand what happens.
