I’m running Fedora 32 on a Lenovo X1C laptop. Running either Gnome or Sway, but both are using Wayland.
The laptop screen works fine, no problems there.
However, I can’t get the system to recognize a second monitor. I’ve tried both a display-port (USB-C) connector) and an HDMI connector. Two different screens, two different connections. The system simply doesn’t see either one.
swaymsg -t get_outputs → only shows my laptop screen.
My guess is that there is something I need to adjust in the system configuration so that it can detect a second scrren.
A bit of research shows that I have an Intel UHD 620 chipset on this laptop. Fedora is supporting that with the i915 driver. But, not sure how to adjust configuration so it detects a second screen.
Anybody else have this issue, or any ideas on how to resolve it?
Still need help with this one
+1 here. I’m having a similar issue, I have a 4k display that I’m trying to connect to. I can mirror the display, but any other option doesn’t seem to work. Very odd. Thinkpad t495s here. I try extended display and my monitor seems to think there isn’t any signal.
Hi, welcome to the Fedora community! What GPU do you have? Activites → About → Graphics
Hi, I am also figuring out to set up dual monitor on my fedora KDE 34.
Answering your question, I have the following graphics settings
Graphics Platform : Wayland
Graphics Processor : Mesa Intel HD Graphics 5500
My output of the command :
dnf list system-config*
system-config-language.noarch 3.5.0-6.fc34 @fedora
system-config-printer-libs.noarch 1.5.15-2.fc34 @anaconda
system-config-printer-udev.x86_64 1.5.15-2.fc34 @anaconda
system-config-printer.x86_64 1.5.15-2.fc34 fedora
system-config-printer-applet.x86_64 1.5.15-2.fc34 fedora
system-config-rootpassword.noarch 1.99.6-24.fc34 fedora
What steps should I take further to successfully set up dual monitor?
There was nothing to be adjusted in the system/software settings. As extended monitor set up is a hardware phenomenon, pressing
cmd + F8 with proper HDMI/VGA connection worked for me.
Meta + P (P stands for Presentation) also opens menu for quick displays setup. After that Display Configuration in System Settings provides more useful settings.
