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.

Newbie Corner / Re: Screen Resolution Problem (800x600 only)

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)

Thanks in advance
Kernel & Hardware / Re: external Harddrive eSATA doe not spin up

My setup started to work again after getting some sleep... without any evident changes made. And I tried a lot... no idea what happened. I'd guess some loose connection or so? :/
Kernel & Hardware / Re: external Harddrive eSATA doe not spin up
« Last post by throwaway675 on 13. May 2018, 04:27:12 »

did you figure it out eventually? I have a very similar problem with my external (esata/usb) enclosure that has worked fine before. When esata is connected the drive wont spin up. USB works fine. I have tested several HDDs, two different cables and two different hosts. I am using Ubuntu but two very different kernels so it shouldn't matter that much anyway.

Package Management / Wine Staging 3.6 package missing
