Re: Unable to Detect Projector on Linux Mint 19.2

You have a laptop with graphics provided by an Integrated Intel + Nvidia card . Usually the HDMI port is internally connected to the Nvidia GPU, so the Nvidia driver needs to be installed for that port to work. Open Driver Manager and install the recommended Nvidia driver. After installing the Nvidi...

Re: AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

This is what you said in a previous post, so that’s why I assumed you were running in software rendering mode: But due to bleeding edge hardware I need to run Kernel 5.2 (unofficial), and for TILE support I need to run amdgpu 19.0.1 (unofficial), and with these, Cinnamon crashes: But the crash must ...

Re: AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

You need to eliminate the software rendering problem first and then the tiled display problem may correct itself. I assume you’re seeing the software rendering if a different lower resolution monitor is connected? What AMD graphics card is installed and did you update any firmware for it? Use this c...

Redsandro, When Nomin started this topic, the AMD drivers did not provide support for tiled 4K monitors connected through DisplayPort, but according to when this article came out, support probably is enabled now for newer AMD drivers. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Radeon-AMDGPU...

Re: How to install amdgpu-pro driver?

Are you seeing the same output that user sampctech got in this post:

What command are you using for the AMDGPU-Pro installation? If it has the -y option in it, then that should be removed.

Copy the theme to the .themes folder (a hidden folder) in your Home directory and edit the slider-v.svg and slider-h.svg files in that location. Any changes will have priority over the original location and won’t be affected by updates. For example, for the Mint-X theme: sudo cp -R /usr/share/themes...

It appears that you were connecting the second monitor to the motherboard’s VGA port. If you want to try using the integrated graphics, then test this kernel parameter by editing the kernel command line. The effect will only last for one session. At the GRUB boot menu select the correct line but don...

Re: Dual monitors wont work!

Have you verified that the HDMI connected monitor and cable work correctly on another system?

Is the monitor using any adapter or switch?

What is the brand and model number of that monitor?

Use these commands and post the output: xrandr --prop and ls /sys/class/drm
