Two Monitor set-up issue with garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-221019.iso

Hello everybody,

I start using Garuda Linux in may 2022 and enjoy it a lot.

I have a 2 monitors setup: HDMI: 1920x1200_60Hz + DP: 3440x1440_75 Hz

ISSUE:

I would appreciate some advice with this issue, I start having with the upgrade to Plasma 5.26 and Nvidia driver 520 ( garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-221019.iso ):

When I booth the system or wake it up from sleep,

  1. Only the 1900x1200 display light up. The 3440x1440 stay dark
  2. The system tray display configuration icon, slowly flash
  3. The 3440x1440 display appear and disappear in the System Settings/Display and Monitor

Temporary Fix :

Open the system tray/display configuration, an repeatedly click like crazy the 2 displays right icon, till the 3440x1440 display wake-up from the dead.

Note: When in the grub, I choose “Advance options” and pick the first choice, it sometime work, but after a few boot, it may be the reverse and it's the “Garuda Linux” option that start working!…..

What I've tried:

1 - Booting in Windows 11 or Garuda Gnome on other SSD - No display issue, it work's fine!

2 - Changing the DP connection port on the graphic card - No success;

3 - Fresh install of garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-221019.iso - No success;

4 - After sudo nvidia-settings in the terminal and setting the Xserver Display Configuration correctly, I save to /etc/X11/xorg.conf - No success.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf FIle:

Thank's for your help,

JL

P.S. Please forgive my English

My xorg.conf from Nvidia Settings is located in; /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf

Not sure if that makes a difference.

Thank's RodneyCK for your suggestion, unfortunately changing the file location have no effect.

Because it's happening quite more often then powering on the system, the most annoying thing about this new behavior, is when I wake up the system from sleep,

I just find though, that if I unchecked “Screen Energy Saving” in the "Power Management/Energy Saving" Settings, the shutting of the 3440x1440 monitor doesn't seem to happen. The 2 monitors stay always open…

yeah, that was going to be my next suggest, play around with the Nvidia Settings. I have a similar setup, same connections, with dual monitors, each with different resolutions and one is even left oriented and I have no issue.

Thank You RodneyCK :vulcan_salute:

This could be related to this KDE bug.
The scenario is different, but many other bug reports are marked as duplicate, and some are more similar to this issue.
