I just installed openSUSE 13.1 (with KDE) and on Windows I run three monitors, two on my Geforce 560 and one on the onboard Intel 4600 (on my i5-4570) I’ve been googling for a while but I can’t seem to get that third monitor to work in openSUSE. Do anyone have any suggestions?
Hmmph, wasn’t expecting that grepping the lspci output to be missing “VGA” for the Intel adapter … perhaps they’ve switched to calling them simply “Display controller” now. (Time to adjust troubleshooting 101 to: /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -e “VGA” -e “Display” -A2 )
Anyway, the hwinfo output appears to show that the intel adapter is configed just fine.
You should be able to achieve what you want simply with xrandr now.
If you want to check the basic requirement is met (i.e. see the relevant section of “man xrandr”):
if so, then issue
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0
After that you should be able to turn the additional monitor on via xrandr itself or through a frontend to it … try using kscreen (if you’re running KDE), as it should be self evident.
And then after that, setup the above in a startup script so that its all evoked automagically each time you boot.
What kernel are you using? (run “uname -r”) … you might want to update to a newer kernel to get the benefits of dynamic runtime power management (don’t remember which kernel it was added to the nouveau or intel kernel drivers) … it will save you battery life
If you want to switch to the nvidia prop. drivers, consult the nvidia release documentation, as it outlines the steps you need to take.
