Just installed latest Debian (8.9.0?) on my Desktop but it cannot find correct ‘display-settings’, it seems to think my dual-monitors are a single ‘laptop’ screen…how do I correct this?
What desktop environment are you using?
It defaults to Cinnamon but I also have installed Gnome and KDE
Well, I use KDE and I saw the display settings within the Hardware category of all system settings. There you can choose the primary monitor, as well as if the monitors are extending or duplicating the view, etc.
Thanks Akito, it says this on the Debian website:
This is an official Debian image build and so only includes Free Software.
For convenience for some users, there is an alternative unofficial netinst CD build which includes non-free firmware for extra support for some awkward hardware. Look under /cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/ if you need that CD image instead.
So will I need this?
You don’t necessarily need to install the system again, you just might want to enable non-free software. There are enough tutorials on how to do that.
Thanks! Very helpful
