System errors with lightdm: wrong startup screen resolution on Intel HD 620

Hello everyone!!

Since kernel update (to 5.7) in August 12th, I’ve been having this problem: when my machine boots up sometimes it renders 1024x768, but the correct resolution is 1366x768. In order to know what is the problem I typed sudo journalctl -p 3 -xb in the terminal and got:

I’m relatively new to Linux and I’ve been reading the arch wiki but I still don’t know how to fix the problem.

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

  1. You posted in English in the Spanish category. No wonder no one looked at your issue. (fixed that for you already)

Please read this:


and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…

An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)

:innocent:

Thanks!!

As for the command inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width I got the following:

I searched for it in the arch wiki, but I’m still not sure what this means.

Does this also happen when you create a new user and log in there?

Hi!
I tried doing something different. I enabled auto login and aparently the problem with lightdm and qtile disappeared. My system booted up with correct screen resolution. Here I provide the result of the command sudo journalctl -p 3 -xb:

-- Logs begin at Tue 2020-07-28 08:02:21 -05, end at Fri 2020-10-09 19:04:14 -05. --

Though, I still don’t know if the “solution” is going to be permanent, and also I don’t know what these other problems are about.
