A few days ago I have updated my distribution(OpenSuse Tumbleweed with Gnome) to the latest version and I am no longer able to get my external HDMI monitor working.
The error I get when I run** intel-virtual-output** is No VIRTUAL outputs on “:0”.
I am also unable to see the HDMI port anymore in xrandr:
gardax@linux-oyrd:~> xrandr -q Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192 XWAYLAND0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 340mm x 190mm 1920x1080 59.96*+
Does anybody have some ideas on what may be the problem?
Some information that I think may be useful:
I have an Optimus HP laptop. My kernel version is 4.18.9. I have installed my drivers and bumblebee following this guide.
My /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf file looks like:
# Configuration file for Bumblebee. Values should **not** be put between quotes ## Server options. Any change made in this section will need a server restart # to take effect.

My /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia config is like that:
Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Layout0" Option "AutoAddDevices" "true" Option "AutoAddGPU" "false" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "DiscreteNvidia" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" Option "ProbeAllGpus" "false" Option "NoLogo" "true" Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "DiscreteNVidia" EndSection
I have a /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf file with:
Section "Device" Identifier "intelgpu0" Driver "intel" Option "VirtualHeads" "2" EndSection
