I’m running Fedora 33 Gnome on a Thinkpad with an external monitor. I often don’t need the Thinkpad screen to be on. Is there a shortcut to turn it off? Under Windows this is Windows key + P.
How about when using external usb keyboards?
You’ll have to find a shortcut to define for this but it appears that you can use xrandr to do this:
The TLDR; on this is run the following:
And then for the monitor you want to power off:
xrandr --output DVI-0 --off (Assuming DVI-0 is the correct monitor)
xrandr is for X-windows?
Will it work with Wayland?
You can try wlr-randr
Woah perfect, thanks. I like how you can hold down Fn and select your monitor configuration by pressing F7.
I’m using an external keyboard so never thought of that.
wlr-randr doesn’t seem to be working with Gnome on Fedora 33. It outputs
compositor doesn't support wlr-output-management-unstable-v1. Apparently this means it works only with compositors written with the wlroots backend.
