Hello, I recently migrated from windows and started using Linux/Ubuntu.
Everything was going fine until I connected my notebook to a monitor/display.
Here is the config I am running:
Hardware model: SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD. 550XDA
Memory: 8 GB
Processor: 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7 @ 2.80GHz × 8
Graphics: Mesa Intel® Xe Graphics (TGL GT2)
OS: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS
OS Type: 64-bit
GNOME Version: 42.4
Windowing System: Wayland
As you can see the display was detected by the system:
Despite this my second screen is all black. I already tried it on another computer and it works just fine. The problem is something with this config. Maybe the graphics card? Mesa Intel® Xe Graphics (TGL GT2).
Can someone please help? I really need this setup working for my studies.
Thank you very much.
Have you tried going back to X11?
Is Ubuntu fully updated?
You may get better drivers for the video card if you enable non-free software repository
Check your cables
Other than that, I do not know. I am not a video expert.
Sorry but what do you mean by x11?
The X Server is the user-side part of the X Window System. The X Window System (also: just “X” or “X11” or “X Version 11” - but not: X-Windows) is a collection of protocol standards and computer programs for creating a graphical user interface
XServer › Wiki › ubuntuusers.de ; translated from German)
Hope it helps.
I guess what Neviile meant with
is that you should try an x11 session instead of a wayland session.
I do hate Wayland and I would like to know, can I start an X11-session in Ubuntu 22.04 - and how?
On the login page, there used to be an option to start an X11-session - which is now gone. What should I do?
Thank you in advance!...
if I log out, and then click on my name to log in, and it opens the password field - then there, on the lower right, a toothed wheel appears and there I can select another session.
It should work, I think.
Thank you very much for the explanation, but unfortunately changing to Xorg (X11) didn’t solved the problem. is there anything else I can do?
This may help
Also do a search with google. There may be others with the same problem
