Solved - Re: Can't change resolution after changing drivers

I am glad I can post a solution or at least work around. Nothing on the net answered this - so i kinda lucked into it.

removed .config/monitors.xml,
restarted

and Display manager went to booting up quickly again - with no black background issue either - everything back to normal - so easy.

Solved !!

I think it was changing my startup programs to use the /usr/bin/program_name instead of just the program_name as works with terminal
also specifically I created a startup program for /usr/bin/nemo

It also allowed me to manage my 2 displays better
