Can you boot garuda with connecting the second monitor before turning the pc on?

Looks like KDE bug. Similar issue



Are you hotpluging?


The same thing happens to me when the hdmi is already connected when I boot the computer. I'll try a system rollback as suggested on my thread

I wonder what would happen if you removed xf86-video-intel. It only needs to be there for computers much older than yours and has caused an infinite number of strange behaviors in the past.

Just guessing. It sounds very much like a conflict between video or audio drivers and your hardware.



Well After a system rollback I worked fine as was working before

Could you indicate how to remove xf86-video-intel safely ? Because right now I'm kinda hesitant on messing with anything, I just probably reinstall the OS with a more barebones install I already messed with a lot of things

sudo pacman -Rns xf86-video-intel.

I'll try that soon.
