Dual monitor problem

Hello everyone, yesterday i decided to try garuda linux ultimate on my laptop, but my hp monitor wasn`t detected at all. what am i missing?PS. i installed now garuda Dr460nized and the same problem

What is your graphics, and which driver did you select to install?

This second monitor, what type of connection are you using?

Is your laptop's display screen working properly?

i have two graphics Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 630 (Mobile) and NVIDIA Corporation TU117M [GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile / Max-Q] (rev a1)

i am using HDMI. and laptop display works fine,

Please post the output of:

inxi -Fxxxza

Please do not post outputs or log excerpts as pictures. Always post terminal outputs as text.

I will likely hand you off to someone else who is better at troubleshooting these type of issues. If @petsam is around he is pretty good with graphics display issues.

I think KDE has been known to be having issues with a second monitor of late. I would search the forum with the terms "KDE dual monitor" and see what advice you turn up.

Welcome to Garuda, hopefully this issue can be rectified without too much of a lwait.

i tried this and it didn`t solve the problem.

and also searched and found this solution


and still same problem.

and below is the output of

optimus-manager --status

Are you in a wayland session by any chance, because it's been causing a lot strange issues for people?

indeed it was the wayland, it is working now,

but i have to do both command every time i boot my system

sudo modprobe nvidia
optimus-manager --switch nvidia

can you help me how to solve this

I think you'll have to wait for someone more experienced with dealing with graphics problems than myself. Perhaps you may have a better chance of getting this resolved by opening a separate thread for your driver issue.

Good luck.

i will try this and let you know

Hi ihad same issue! But when you launch Optimus-manager, just right click on optimus tray icon-->setting-->launch att startup. It worked for me. If not make sure Optimus-manager ticked on Desktop session Settings! And edit .conf "
sudo vim /etc/optimus-manager/optimus-manager.conf
" and make sure "startup_mode=nvidia " !
