Pretty hard when one doesn't run krandrtray by default, so one has to
start it first...
Back when kde's randr handling was entirely broken for multi-monitors,
however, I setup a script that makes my changes using xrandr (which was
NOT broken, never did figure out how come xrandr could get it right but kde
couldn't... until years later!) commands. I now invoke that with various
keyboard hotkeys (which BTW I have to invoke using /another/ set of
scripts, since kde4 totally broke khotkey multi-key handling, other than
mod-keys at least... I had khotkeys setup on kde3 using one of the extra
keys on my inet/media keyboard as a "launch-menu" key, but kde4's khotkeys
broke that and there's no fix in sight, despite a years-open bug that was
at one point quite high on the top-voted bug list, so I had to at least
partially design my own solution!).
So I have keyboard based resolution switching... I just have to remember a
whole bunch of sequences now for all the different resolutions, instead of
just the two, one to cycle up in resolutions, one to cycle down, as the
C-A-KP+/KP= allowed, and those were reasonably logical too, less arbitrary
than the whole group of shortcuts I had to replace them with.
