Normally Settings>Display will show you both monitors and you choose the configuration from there.

If the external monitor is not showing it is either broken, or not being seen by the laptop.
So, what connection is it? HDMI, Display Port, VGA, DVI-D?
What make is the monitor - Dells have their own quirks.

Next, what graphics card?

Inxi -F should help provide more assistance. Copy and paste the output.

I use laptop, and want to use an external monitor which is connected, but it doesn't work.  How do I switch to external monitor from built-in monitor?
I checked Settings but I found no switch-page.

As for pc, I can't login this forum. As for cellphone, the forum can't start a new topic. Thus, I have to write it there. I have specific Android5 phone for media entertainment use. yesterday both its interstorage and tf card's data was deleted as I was in mtp mode, sawing a 'redundant' file seemed 'storage', and all the files had gone. as in usb mode, interstorage didn't appear, so I usually choose mtp. I did my best to recover, but the apps can't detect in mtp mode, as usb mode, interstorage can't be shown. Moreover, the files' original structure would be recoverd,  which some apps can't do, otherwise what a messy I saw. help......

Hi Pavroo.

I eventually fixed it by doing the following:

To fix broken packages on Debian-based distributions using APT:
1. Open the terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard and enter:
sudo apt --fix-missing update
2. Update your system's package list from the available sources:
sudo apt update
3. Now, force the installation of the broken packages using the -f flag. APT will
automatically search for broken packages on your system and reinstall them from the
official repository.
sudo apt install -f


That did the trick, and it went on from where it stopped.

Investigating, I found there is no

Hey yall... Looking to remaster Sparky as well...?

Recently I've made about 10 remasters... XFCE-Sparks-4G Trinity-Sparks-4G and a beta Lumina desktop...

Eggs?.... Remastered Bodhi Linux with the Enlightenment Desktop all went well with Eggs on my latest Ubuntu22-Enlightenment-4G... Yet today, I am working on a Sparky-7-LXQT version, with Eggs failing... Thus all Sparky remastering so far is done with Systemback as the preferred tools for the job anyhow...

If there's interest in my Remastering efforts this far... There's new systems ready to go... Uploads and links will be made available on request...  Dark themes on all... Full featured, with all the latest updates... Any questions, feel free to ask anything... Lets get this inferno re-fired up... ;)
