Extended Desktop DVI + HDMI Device

Postby rze » 2018-07-23 17:36

Hi,
I want two use two monitors as an extended desktop.
I am using the intel graphic of the processor.

When I attach both monitors the desktop is mirrored on the second monitor.

Code: Select all
root@sdfdsf:/etc# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:   Debian
Description:   Debian GNU/Linux 9.5 (stretch)


Code: Select all
root@sdfsdfdsf:/etc# xrandr -q
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 1920 x 1080, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080
default connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 0mm x 0mm
   1920x1080     77.00*

I tried the testing branch using a live image at https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/week ... so-hybrid/.
debian-live-testing-amd64-gnome.iso 2018-07-23 20:22 2.1G

Within the live image extended desktop mode worked fine. Will install Buster Alpha 3.

Instead of a new installation I switched my debian 9 installation to testing/buster according the instructions at https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-upgrade- ... -10-buster.

summary.
Code: Select all
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
# apt-get dist-upgrade
# sed -i 's/stretch/buster/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
# apt-get dist-upgrade


This worked.
