Setup dual monitors VGA & DP with GPU and Motherboard

Hey there. I’m new to linux and I am having issues connecting dual monitors.
Unfortunately I do not have a VGA port on my GPU.
I currently have 1 monitor (DP) connected to my GPU
and I have the second monitor (VGA) connected to my motherboard, however the second monitor is not displaying anything. If somebody could help me out here and maybe figure out a solution, it would be appreciated. Please remember I am new to linux so try not to use complicated terms with me.

I would also like to mention that this is a linux issue and not a computer issue. Running dual monitors on windows 10 worked like a piece of cake.
If anybody could help me out here, that would be great. Thanks.


What do you see in System Settings->Display and Monitor? Paste the screenshot

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

Manjaro Linux is not Windows - if you expect it to function similarly - you should really consider if Linux is up your alley.

Go over your settings - it is quite possible the output is disabled.

Please use the search function - you are not the first … upper right corner :mag:
