Dual Monitor/Primary is Forgotten on Reboot

Post by Kendoori »

I had hoped that the upgrade to 19.3 Cinnamon would remedy this, but it didn't. Am looking for a way to remember what's primary vs. secondary at boot.

Code: Select all

Graphics:  Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 620 driver: i915 v: kernel 
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.19.6 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa resolution: 2560x1440~60Hz 
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2) v: 4.5 Mesa 19.0.8 

Code: Select all

Thanks for that... I had forgotten about Autorandr, which is what I ultimately used to solve the problem, as shown here: viewtopic.php?f=208&t=305042
