I would like see the laptop screen in my Samsung TV with HDMI cable. The FN+F8 button is not working and the settings I don't see the TV, when cable is on-on.

How to?

Please help me. Thanks!

How are you checking?

I would use
Code: Select all
xrandr

Or
Code: Select all
arandr

^ That offers a nice GUI (install the arandr package).

You would need to install arandr, as noted, via apt. Each desktop environment (gnome, mate, cinnamon, xfce, etc) has a display applet where this can be configured. Look for display settings. WIthout knowing your desktop environment I can't be more specific.
Take my advice, I'm not using it.

I think that's GNOME so try the display section of the settings panel.

I don't use Gnome, and I can't read the language in use by the computer, so I/m afraid I won't be of much more help.
