Screen selection pop up

Hi, new to Garuda but I’ve used other linux ditros periodically. I keep getting screen selection pop up and despite selecting one or all of the options the pop up continues to ¨pop up"regularly. Because I’m a new user I can´t upload a screenshot but it gives the options: Switch to Extrnal Screen/Switch to Laptop Screen/Unify Outputs/Extend to Left/Extend to Right/Leave Unchanged. As previously stated, no matter what I select the pop up returns on a regularly annoying basis. I’ve tried display settings without any success? Any advice appreciated.

Welcome :slight_smile:

First, reboot.

Second, try X11 from login screen, bottom left, click wayland.

Which apps are in use at this moment?
Did you use keyboard shortcuts?
Popups without keys press?
Are they upper right?
No app name inside?

If you can post pictures, please, only the message.

Reboot…no change. Trying X11 at the moment. No apps in use apart from Firedragon, but it still pops up if thatś closed. Don´t use keyboard shortcuts. Yes it pops up without any key press. Popup is in the middle. No app name inside. Can´t post a picture as I’m new and it’s not allowed.

Perhaps it could be a malfunction of the Fx Key used to open that screen (to choose whether to extend, duplicate, etc. across multiple monitors)?
Try pressing it several times, just in case.
Also see if everything is OK as display info in system settings.

Thanks, changing to x11 seems to have done the trick so far.
