• Can't detect second monitor


    I’m having a problem connecting to a second monitor. I can connect to another monitor from a different make/manufacturer so I can’t really see what the problem is ?

    It’s a ‘LOGIK’ branded monitor, are these known to have problems with arch based systems?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    • what is your installed DE (Desktop Environment) ?
    • how is the monitor connected (cable type)?

  • Gnome (With GDM) so running wayland.

    And it’s HDMI.

  • the other monitor is also hdmi? and the LOGIK-Monitor is a PC Display or a TV-Display?

  • Also say what you already try to do, and which tools you are using for this.

  • Yes the other monitor is also hdmi. The LOGIK monitor is a TV display. I’m using the arandr tool to manage my displays.
