I've been using the following xrandr commands to switch between my laptop and external screens:
Code: Select all
xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto
xrandr --output VGA1 --off
This worked fine until a recent software update. Since the update, if I run the commands the configuration is switched, and the original screen shuts off, but the new screen does not turn on. I can get it to turn on by ctrl+alt+f* to a different console and back again, but I'd prefer if it could just do it automatically like it used to. Does anyone know a way to correct this?
Thanks for any suggestions.
