Thread: Dual Monitor Minssing with Nouveau

  1. #1

    Default Dual Monitor Minssing with Nouveau

    I've made a bit of a mess.

    My Tumbleweed machine was running just fine with Nouveau and giving me a dual monitor display - laptop and external monitor.

    I wanted to try out the Nvidia drivers, but initially made a mess, and got it up and running.

    But I went back to nouveau.

    However now, the external monitor is non-existent as far as the system is concerned.

    xrandr is not reporting the attached monitor.

    xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
    Screen 0: minimum 1920 x 1080, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080
    default connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 0mm x 0mm
    1920x1080 77.00*

    hwinfo reports:

    Help greatly appreciated.

    OK, I worked out the solution.

    • Uninstall all Nvidia packages
    • rmmod any Nvidia kernal modules
    • delete any Nvidia .conf files in /etc/modprobe.d/
    • reboot

    I now have my dual monitor configuration back!

    Be aware that you may run into a "double cursor" if you use xrender compositor (which worked the best for me with lenovo laptops with dGPU).
