Title: P10 5.0 kernel and dual monitor support failed. [RE-SOLVED]
Post by: spence on August 04, 2019, 05:11:13 pm
 ???

Sadly, I can't get my dual monitors to display anything other than a default duplicate display via Display via peppermint Control panel, nor in ARandR

 >:(

have flipped back to the prior 4.18.0-25-generic kernel for now...

You can provide this from the 4.18 kernel

Well I wasn't expecting that from the intel/modesetting driver :-\

I'll see if I have an affected intel machine too and get back to you.

How exactly were you setting up the dual monitors ? .. "Display" app, or "ARandR" ?

and what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
xrandr
(preferably from both the 4.18 and 5.0 kernels)

Erm the inxi says its 4.18 kernel ?

I usually right click on desktop to launch Peppermint Settings Panel, select Hardware then Display. The only options there: default / 1920x1080 / 77.0 Hz...

I'll be right back with the settings from 4.18 kernel...   :-\

I've just noticed the driver changes from 'modesetting' in 4.18 to 'fbdev' in 5.0

I need to do some homework about forcing the modesetting driver.

I love Holidays but it's great to be back home.

I will be doing some YouTube Live System Updating tomorrow to see how many of my many Systems bork after 8 days away ?

Should be interesting

Everything updated perfectly here. Triple Monitors work on Nvidia.

Thanks Zeb.

BTW, the 430 drivers are now in the default repos, so should no longer require adding the PPA :)

Heh! It hit a 120 F a few more miles down the road, but...

One isn't supposed to be playing on their cell phone, while driving, you know?  ;D

 8)  We're back in Arizona and slowly readjusting from the 10 hour time shift between Kyiv and Tucson. Happily this dual monitor issue self resolved while we were away after I applied all updates we had missed over the last month. The sun is out after an overnight rain.

All is well in Baja Arizona Peppermint Land!

We do have a nascent independence movement down here VinDSL... though it's largely supplanted by the Reconquistas led by the Grijalva family.

Aha! I thought you were talking geographically - not politically.

I've always thought that they should split Arizona into four states - including relocating Israel from the Middle East to south of Tucson, on the border - to both get Israel out of harm's way, and provide a barrier to the Central American hordes that are invading the USA.

But, I digress... WB, spence  :)
