Manjaro Netbook Edition Monitor Issue
« on: 22. April 2016, 16:42:44 »
Hey, I have been using netbook edition of manjaro on my netbook for a while now however just recently have tried to hook my netbook up to my monitors using VGA and HDMI cables. They are not picked up by my netbook and can not be found in "Display" settings. Also if I start the OS with the monitors already connected the backlight on the netbook turns off and I cannot see anything at all.  Is this a bug that I am able to fix or is this part of the distro? Thanks in advance for any help or information.

Do you have xrandr installed?

It should work.

Can you post the output of:
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
If you have one of those horrible PowerVR-rebadged GPU's, that could be the issue. :\
