I have a thinkpad hooked to an external monitor and I want to be able to close the laptop lid and still use my monitor as an external display. Unfortunately, this is not a feature supported by xfce, so I’ve manually changed the settings in etc/systemd/logind.conf and uncommented the following lines
The cable is almost brand new. Highly doubt it would be the cable.
Setting the external monitor as a primarily display, made a slight slight difference. Prior to that, the external monitor would immediate go black. So there’s progress in that sense. Anyway, thanks for your help.
I’m afraid it’s not that easy.
This problem has been with Manjaro XFCE for several years now and all suggested solutions are not suitable for my Lenovos and Dells. Take a Manjaro Gnome Live-Stick and be amazed how well it works there. It’s a damn and so far unsolved XFCE problem that has been around since the Manjaro XFCE was born. Very annoying that this problem has already been discussed hundreds of times, but nothing has ever changed.
