** Description changed:

- I'll complete this shortly (from another box)
  19.10 QA-Test daily (this occurred on yesterday's daily but I didn't have time to report)
  Apologies if already reported; I didn't find it
+ dell [optiplex] 780 (c2q-q9400, 8gb, amd/ati cedar radeon hd 5000/6000/7350/8350)
  On boot - I selected "try kubuntu" then setup my second display "to the
  left" (sorry I forget the wording).  My right-monitor is portrait-left
- tilted, so it's the first thing I tried to change..
+ tilted, so it's the first thing I tried to change..  (Displays - System
+ Settings Module)
+ The first attached picture shows what I see, a single display visible where I'd expect to have two?
+ One display is portrait-left tilted; so I adjust the display to reflect that and click OK
+ The second attached picture shows what I next see when I re-open
+ Displays (System Settings Module), the second display is now visible,
+ but it's located a good distance away, which makes loosing the pointer
+ easy if I move off-screen.
+ I would expect the screen to be next to the other monitor; I've made no
+ movements at this point; only changed orientation (where only one
+ display was visible on the picture).
+ This was noticed first on an installed system (updated Lubuntu + Kubuntu
+ 19.10 system last night), I booted yesterday's daily ISO and had same
+ issue.  Today's issue was re-test as I was too tired last night.
