Losing Display Settings When Switching
« on: October 31, 2021, 04:04:38 am »
Problem 1:

I am using a monitor with hdmi.

I have set the display to: laptop off  & external monitor primary.

I also have a usb switch - so when I switch to my other laptop and then switch back to my sparky linux laptop, it forgets the settings and goes haywire.

Is there anything I can do to make the display settings permanent?

I have a second problem:

If I set my external monitor as primary without clicking to mirror the screens, they get mirrored anyway. I can't use the laptop as a second screen to rag stuff over to it.

Do I need to do some kind of graphics upgrade via terminal or something?
