Kubuntu Intrepid Dual Monitor Blinking

OK, so how many of you are trying out Kubuntu Intrepid with a second monitor which works somewhat, but constantly sits there and blinks on and off? If you answered “ya, mine does that” then this is what you need to do:

  1. Open up System Settings
  2. Go to the Advanced tab
  3. Select Service Manager
  4. Select Detecting RANDR (monitor) changes and stop the service
  5. Uncheck the box next to the previous step in order to prevent this service from starting up at login
  6. Apply everything and close out
  7. Enjoy the non-blinking external or 2nd display

Thanks to those of you who responded to bug #278471 for helping us out!
