Simply not working. Steps taken to troubleshoot:
- Tapped F7 to check display orientation is OK
- Verified cable and monitor work with another machine
- Run sudo dnf update
- Tried various combos of plugging/unplugging/rebooting
See attached neofetch for specs
Welcome to Fedora @horseman
Your neofetch not says a lot about your connection, if you have a direct one or if you are using a docking station in between?
You have to check the resolution and the frequency. You monitor might not support something of it.
What about a driver problem?
I got this error today while try to update my F37, i also use Intel GPU but jut older one:
Problem 1: cannot install the best update candidate for package mesa-va-drivers-freeworld-22.3.7-1.fc37.x86_64
- nothing provides mesa-filesystem(x86-64) >= 23.0.1 needed by mesa-va-drivers-freeworld-23.0.1-1.fc37.x86_64
Problem 2: cannot install the best update candidate for package mesa-vdpau-drivers-freeworld-22.3.7-1.fc37.x86_64
- nothing provides mesa-filesystem(x86-64) >= 23.0.1 needed by mesa-vdpau-drivers-freeworld-23.0.1-1.fc37.x86_64
It turns out I had an HDMI switcher that I’d completely forgotton about between the Thinkpad and the monitor… Removing it seems to resolve my issue.
However I would like to use the HDMI switcher. Is this a Linux thing or a Thinkpad thing? (I’ve been using the switcher between a MacBook Pro and a Nintendo Switch for years without issue.)
