Never having configured either a triple display setup, or multi with LVDS, I 
can only speculate that blocking kscreen control of display configuration 
could work as well as it does here with only two and no hotplugging. Put the 
following in ~/.config/kded5rc:


Configuration entirely via xorg.conf, or alternatively, via xrandr in a 
startup script, is prerequisite to this working as desired.
