Hi! I’ve been struggling with connecting an extra screen to my Acer Nitro 5 laptop for a while now… I have tried several tutorials and none have worked for me. I can leave the output to some commands that might be useful.
Graphics: Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 630 driver: i915 v: kernel
Device-2: NVIDIA GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] driver: nvidia v: 440.100
Device-3: Quanta HD User Facing type: USB driver: uvcvideo
Display: x11 server: XOrg 1.20.8 driver: modesetting,nvidia resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GTX 1050/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 440.100
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
eDP-1-1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
Here says HDMI-0 disconnected but I have a monitor connected (which I tested on windows and worked fine)
I also installed
optimus-manager and switched to my Nvidia Gtx 1050 gpu, and it still doesnt work.
