Display problem using external monitor connected to a DisplayLink docking station.

Post by heyvOOn » Thu Jul 05, 2018 4:03 pm

Display problem using external monitor connected to a DisplayLink docking station.

The problem
Basically every time the system comes back from sleep (Not hibernation). The displays gets all weirdlike can be seen on the pictures below. Half of the the 28" monitor gets black and I can even go there with the cursor.
Restarting Cinnamon doesn't do any good.

The workaround
The only way I could get around this so far is to pressing Alt + F2 , type r , and press Enter to restart the window manager.

If anyone have encounter this issue or similar and know hoe to fix. Please help! :D

Use these commands in the Terminal and post the output: inxi -SCGx and xrandr

From my understanding, that method also restarts Cinnamon.

Try using this command after resuming from suspend:

Code: Select all

xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --rate 60 --pos 0x264 --output DVI-I-2-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --rate 60 --pos 1366x0
If that doesn’t help, then try this command:

Code: Select all

xrandr --output LVDS1 --off --output DVI-I-2-1 --off && xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --rate 60 --pos 0x264 --output DVI-I-2-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --rate 60 --pos 1366x0
