Main screen treated as secondary screen

Hi, after trying to setup my pc with a secondary screen, i’ve ran into an issue : my main screen (1920*1080) has adopted the resolution of my secondary screen (1, and when i change the resolution, it always defaults back to the wrong one after a reboot. Also, the KDE taskbar doesn’t show up anymore (but is present on the second screen when i connect it), making it really annoying to do anything. I think it might be that my laptop screen is treated as a secondary screen for some reason

Does someone knows how to fix this ? Thanks in advance

I saw that the output of xrandr might be useful, so here it is :

Actually not quite … You are running Wayland session.

Use the X11 one.

Well, i guess it worked, but now all my pinned programs are gone, is this normal ?
Nevertheless, thanks a lot !!

X11 and Wayland sessions do not share quite well (yet) the Desktop Settings, hence whatever you did in one might have to do again in the other. Is not normal, but is still in development. :sweat_smile:
