Xfce / Xrandr cannot recognize proper resolution and refresh rate
« Last post by GrandGamer on 10. October 2018, 01:47:09 »
I have a 2k 144Hz Samsung FreeSync monitor. When I was using HDMI, I had proper resolution but the Refresh Rate was only 60 Hz. When I switched to DisplayPort (monitor's included cable), xrandr only recognizes up to 1080p60hz.
I use 2 monitors, the second one is a 1080p 60hz monitor. I am on an i7 3930k with AMD RX 460 gpu with AMDGPU driver. Keep in mind that the proper resolution is reported in Xorg logs from the monitor EDID.
Also note that Xubuntu on a live USB sets the proper resolution and refresh rate.

EDIT: I should also add that in HDMI mode, Manjaro not only doesn't recognize 144Hz but it also recognizes 4k resolution which isn't supported by the monitor.

Am happy to report that reading the above wiki resolved the issue. I added the following lines to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-gpudriver.conf as outlined on the wiki under xorg driver :

Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel GMA3600"
    Driver     "modesetting"

On reboot the resolution had changed to 1024x600 and even better the brightness buttons now work. Thanks for the help Eugen-b.
It worked ! Thanks :) (N3050 processor 2018)

The latest patches from Intel are problematic at best:
