Very new linux user here (3 days experience).

I have 2 screens, that i have setup properly, not without having to fiddle with the little visual tool provided by default with elementary OS (screen positioning can have a tendency to go all over the place). They have 2 different resolutions.

On startup, my secondary screen won't start, as if with bad resolution. I then have to go into the tool (which displays the right resolution - super weird), then take a lower one, apply, and go back to the right resolution, which works (and still, i have to fiddle a bit with the positioning of the screen for some reason).

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GK104 [GeForce GTX 760 OEM] Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.19.6 ) drivers: nouveau (unloaded: modesetting,fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz, 2560x1440@59.95hz OpenGL: renderer: NVE4 version: 4.3 Mesa 19.0.8

Hope that it will be a good enough description, i am really just getting started ^^.

  • What hardware do you have, and what drivers? – rasmus91 Oct 13 '19 at 10:25

  • I'd try installing some of the recent Nvidia proprietary driver: sudo apt install nvidia-driver-430 – rasmus91 Oct 13 '19 at 10:44
  • This caused complete mayhem :P. Basically, my screens are no longer recognized :(. It's actually impossible to pick another driver in the manager. As soon as i try to apply one, it reverts to another.. so freaky.. – Gynko Oct 13 '19 at 13:51
