What's the screen resolution you're trying to set?

I can confirm that it still works in my KaOS VM, though periodically I need to tell VirtualBox what I want it to do (a VirtualBox issue).

I don't wait for login to call xrandr though. I also like my login screen to use the proper resolution, so where that isn't automatically the case I put the required xrandr statements in the Xsetup file used when the X server starts.

And as far as I can remember you can still use the "Display and Monitor" kcm from the systemsettings utility, to pick the resolution you want (provided indeed it's known, possibly thanks to a call to xrandr).

KF5 gets everything from ~/.config and ~/.local/share . The old ~/.kde is only referenced for migration of old settings, and of course by whatever KDE4 apps you still use.
