this is my first Linux OS, installed alongside windows 10 on my SSD and its fine, though whenever i try to go to displays to edit my resolution and my other monitors ( it just duplicates them at the moment) the app closes and i get a system settings has closed unexpectedly?

I apologize if my info provided is not very detailed if anything else is needed please feel free to say, thank you in advance guys ( this is probably a really basic error aha )

  • It would help if you could open up the terminal and type in switchboard. Once you do that, you'll see the System Settings. After that, click on the Displays. If it crashes, you'll see the error log in your terminal. After that, edit your question and paste the errors you got.
