Re: [Solved by workaround] Problems with External monitors on Lenovo notebook with dockingstation

Hey guys, I have great news. I updated the Nvidia drivers to version 390.12 using Linux Mint's Driver Manager and the problems have pretty much disappeared. Here's what I did: Menu > Driver Manager > Enter Password > Select nvidia-390 > Apply Changes > Wait for it to finish (takes a while) > Reboot ...

Re: [Solved by workaround] Problems with External monitors on Lenovo notebook with dockingstation

The issue is that the system will randomly and periodically stop displaying and go to the flickering that the OP mentioned. Sometimes this is a result of the screen-saver satrting but other times it just happens if the system sits idle too long. I'll come back to a blank screen laptop fan running f...

Re: Problems with External monitors on Lenovo notebook with dockingstation

Hi ccc2lu, Not really. The screens always act up when I change the configuration or if i connect/disconnect one of them. I ended up using a workaround, however, that seems to work reasonably well for my everyday use. Setup: [Samsung Monitor with DP (Primary)] ---- [Samsung Monitor with HDMI] ---- [N...

Re: Problems with External monitors on Lenovo notebook with dockingstation

I assume you want the 3 displays in an extended desktop and not in mirror mode. Open the monitors.xml file and add <clone>no</clone> below the second line that says <configuration> : Log out and back in. The current monitors.xml does not mirror the screens but I'll add the line anyway. If that does...

Re: Problems with External monitors on Lenovo notebook with dockingstation

The current saved configuration in the monitors.xml file shows the 3 displays are cloned. Open the File Manager and go to /home/your-user-name/.config and remove that file. Then open Preferences > Display and move output eDP-1-1 to the left, followed by DP-3.1 and DP-3.2 Set the resolution of eDP-1...

Re: Problems with External monitors on Lenovo notebook with dockingstation

Thanks for replying to my post! :-) Before this setup I had the same setup but with an HP 8460p (and dockingstation) running LM 17.3. There, everything worked like a charm and I could arrange the monitors over the 'Diplay' settings window. I'm seeing more monitor detection and configuration problems...

Whenever I change the monitor settings, all the displays start to flicker (and continue to flicker until I restart). During t...
