xrandr no HDMI port detected

Postby synthase » 2017-10-16 12:49

Hello everyone,

First sorry if I'm having typing issue, english is not my first language.

I just got an Acer Aspire 7 with I7-7700HQ and NVIDIA GTX 1050. Everything works fine excepted that I can't use a second, HDMI monitor. There's no VGA port in the computer.

Bumblebee and nvidia drivers are installed and I can run optirun glxgears without problemes with more than a thousand FPS, indicating that the discrete card works ok with bumblebee/optirun.

When nvidia-settings it tells me that I'm not running X nvidia server and I should run nvidia-xconfig.

Then I can't start gdm3 after reboot cause of the following Xorg error:
