    Post Problem with connection of external monitor - frozen screen, laptop


    I have a problem with using an external monitor with laptop on LEAP 15.4., KDE:

    Operating System: openSUSE Leap 15.4                 
         CPE OS Name: cpe:/o:opensuse:leap:15.4
              Kernel: Linux 5.14.21-150400.24.18-default
        Architecture: x86-64
     Hardware Vendor: Acer
      Hardware Model: Predator PT314-51s
    Qt: 5.15.2
    KDE Frameworks: 5.90.0
    kf5-config: 1.0
    The second monitor seems to be connected

    xrandr --listproviders --listmonitors returns

    Providers: number : 2
    Provider 0: id: 0x6a; cap: 0xf (Source Output, Sink Output, Source Offload, Sink Offload); crtcs: 4; outputs: 2; associated providers
    : 1; name: modesetting
       output eDP-1
       output DP-1
    Provider 1: id: 0x44; cap: 0x2 (Sink Output); crtcs: 4; outputs: 1; associated providers: 1; name: modesetting
       output HDMI-1-1
    Monitors: 1
    nonetheless after "enabling" through display manager, nothing happens and the laptop screen completely freezes.

    inxi -Ga returns

    I saw a lot of similar problems connected to the KDE and drivers, however I'm still not able to find any soluton. I would appreciate any hints.
    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Have you installed and used suse-prime?

    Your inxi -Ga output looks wrong. Please, whenever you post command output, include the command, so we can be sure what happened and what we see match. Leap 15.4 provides a broken old inxi version. Try sudo inxi -U first to upgrade to latest version from upstream, then try inxi -Ga again.
