Sounds more like something has gone wrong during your upgrade.


kcmshell4 display

work for you?

It brings up an empty dialog:


While Nikos hasn't indicated distro yet on this thread, in the past he
has indicated gentoo, which is what I run...

Yes, I'm on Gentoo (~amd64).

@ Nikos: You should be able to read more about that in the two
documentation files kscreen installs in (assuming gentoo)
/usr/share/doc/kscreen-*/, one gentoo-based and one generic.

Only one file is in there:

  $ ls -l /usr/share/doc/kscreen-1.0.71/
  total 4
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 727 Oct 27 10:59 kded.README.bz2

and it doesn't say anything useful.

What about (from a konsole or other terminal window)...

kcmshell4 kcm_kscreen

It brings up an almost empty window:


So kscreen works, but cannot offer configuration for my monitor, it seems?

Fortunately NVidia offers their own tool, which works, so for now I have a functional system. Hopefully there's a solution for this in the future.
