Not sure which video driver you use, or exactly what it is you are looking to 
do, but I use the following xorg.conf file with the nouveau driver.  This is 
based on the XRandR 1.2 capabilities and I do not need to use any special KDE 
configuration. (I have to have DPMS off on my VGA monitor or the backlight 
keeps going on and off when the system is not in use and I don't want to kill 
the monitor over time. You may not need this.  I have also disabled the 
Composite extension as the nouveau driver is crap for this.  You may also not 
need this.)
