My Live USB Manjaro runs perfectly with my display setup, but the install does not

New to Arch/Man, coming from Deb. Please show me to the important files and settings to investigate. Thank you.

you must be more precise !
explain what the issue is !
no one is wasting his time for questions like “it does not work”

I figured the quickest way to troubleshoot is to examine the differences between the display settings in both instances. Can you direct me to those?

Have you already :mag: for your problem in the forum ? (Wisdom lies in asking → listening → reading :wink: )

Welcome to the forum! :wave:

Please use actual words and proper pronouns, not invented abbreviations.

We have no idea what you “display setup” is.

Please see the following and edit your first post accordingly:

There is no default - it is determined at boot time by mhwd

Xorg configs are placed same location /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d

If you are using Nvidia - mhwd - if booted with proprietary drivers - may have created a config in /etc/X11/mhwd.d - which is symlinked into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d

As for the display arrangement - multiple displays - any configuration will exist in /home/manjaro/.config

Plasma Wayland doesn’t require any configuration - and stores configuration in /home/manjaro/.config

I don’t know for Gnome - I lost patience in that regard years ago :slight_smile:

Thank you, very useful info

Other info which may be useful

The ISO enables kms - and ISO releases from 2024 enables kms for the final installation.

However - early kms must be enabled manually as described in

Also, very, very useful info, thank you
