To try to set my video settings so that I do not have to repeatedly fix that every time I boot my computer. Unfortunately, it broke my computer! So, what is a safe way to fix the settings to the different monitors I have that will not break my computer?
After reboot, I could not use my computer. I ended up having a very large convo on this with another in another post to get my computer back.
*I skipped a line when typing what was on my image, It does not change what I already have, just changes one snippit of info I gave you. Under Identifier “DVI-I-1-1” I left out the option that was provided to you that states;
Option “LeftOf” “HDMI-1”
Like I said, it does not change what I have, just what I gave to you.
That was from my initial post, I was very clear and concise. I have 2 monitors connected to my laptop, of which can bee seen in the code of my posts. I want to make my largest/middle screen the main primary and position my laptop on one side and the other monitor on the other side. I also want to make sure the resolution and global scale are set either auto or specific based on resolution. However, every time I reboot, I have to fix everything. The problem is, when I reboot, everything is super tiny so I have to stand next to the monitors super close in order to see what I am doing. And I am not exaggerating on the super tiny either. Think tiny print on bills and make it smaller. Plus, I never know which way the monitors are going to show up. I have had the monitors randomly appear above my laptop or layered over each other on the layout when I reboot. I am tired of having to fix this on a daily basis and just want to make a permanent fix.
I did wait 3 hrs before making that post. I had been doing homework for hours before coming back to find nothing. I was hoping for a little light at the end of the tunnel. Sorry, if it seems I was impatient, I am juggling allot here and was trying to stay on task.
Thank-you for those two catches, not sure if it will help though. My desired laptop screen is 1920x1080 res and 150% global. I have not yet figured out which way to set global. And I have made the ‘fixes’ to my grammar. I am used to being on a Windows OS that catches my grammar in almost everything I did. And sometimes, my letters when typing somehow get doubled. I am constantly fixing as I go but sometimes I miss some things. As for global, I am assuming that adding:
Option “Global” “150%”
Option “Global scale” “150%”
would do it. But that is based on the rest of the code following the same pattern.
Either specify an absolute position (0,0) or a relative one (LeftOf), not both.
Absolute positions are x,y coordinates in pixels. 0,0 is the top left corner of the screen (the thing that contains the monitors). That’s where you put the top left corner of HDMI-1, which has a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels.
So the top right corner of HDMI-1 is 3840,0 yet you put DVI-I-1-1 at 1280,0, which of course overlaps. You put your laptop screen at 0,320 which puts the top left corner 320 pixels below the top left corner of HDMI-1, again overlapping.
xrandr combined with a startup script (give the absolute path to the script), or there should be a GUI configuration utility.
# Aligned to the top so moving the mouse
# between monitors is easy
# if it's blocked then move the mouse up and try again
xrandr --output DVI-I-1-1 --pos 0x0 # left
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --pos 1280x0 # mid
xrandr --output eDP-1 --pos 5120x0 # right
Perhaps you should look to your DE configuration for that. According to you (“konsole”), your DE is KDE. Manjaro is a distro.
