This patch gets us rid of kscreen dependency in plasma-workspace. No more problems with having a half usable area for the desktop or panels dancing around. Plasmashell starts fine and much faster w/o kscreen installed.

Drawbacks:
- QScreen currently doesn't notify of outputs added/removed when one unplugs the cable or undocks the laptop

To disable ext screen: xrandr --output HDMI3 --off
To enable it again and put it right of the primary one: xrandr --output HDMI3 --preferred --right-of LVDS1

maybe put screen->name() here too so it matches with SCREEN ADDED. Will make debugging easier. David Edmundson David Edmundson
We still need this. It's for the case where we have mirrored mode i.e two screens on top of each ... David Edmundson David Edmundson
slightly offtopic, but maybe this is the cause of our original kscreen error. With the kscreen part now being out ... David Edmundson David Edmundson
