Re: Dual monitors with DP1.2 are duplicating instead of extending

I tried but wasn't able to get DP 1.2 to work at all. No matter what I did the screens would always duplicate instead of extend. In the end I purchased and installed a $35 video card (details below in case anyone wants a reference) and it came with 2 ports so with the new card both monitors extend a...

Re: Dual monitors with DP1.2 are duplicating instead of extending

I just tried and yes, got the black screen. For me, both monitors were black, not just the 2nd one. I did use the "e" at Grub boot so restarting brought everything back (both monitors on, but the same image on both) so I'm back at square one. Not sure what else I could really try.

Re: Dual monitors with DP1.2 are duplicating instead of extending

Yes, both monitors have a DP 1.2 setting and are both enabled. When I boot on Windows this is working perfectly, with both monitors working and extending the desktop instead of duplicating. What is interesting to me is that on Mint both monitors DO work and I can see the image on both, which I think...

Re: Dual monitors with DP1.2 are duplicating instead of extending

Yes, the display option only shows one monitor but both monitors work and show the same image (but I want them to extend, not duplicate the display). See the attached 2 images. Here is the result of inxi -Fxz: System: Host: Z200 Kernel: 4.13.0-32-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0) Desktop: Cinnamon ...

Dual monitors with DP1.2 are duplicating instead of extending

I have a desktop with 2 monitors. They are connected with DP 1.2 (daisy-chain) so cables are desktop -> monitor 1 via a DP cable -> monitor 2 via a DP cable from monitor 1 output to monitor 2 input. This works well in Windows 10 (I have dual boot) so I know the hardware is properly connected and DP ...

Re: Mouse + keyboard freezes in new install of Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia

I did check the driver manager. When I go there I see nvidia-340 marked as "recommended", but I tried that and caused Linux to boot to a black screen. I had to reinstall it and now kept the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau option which works (but may be related to the mouse freezes). I could try switching...

Details of my computer and configuration are below. For some reason my mouse a...
