I have Qubes 4.0.4 installed on my laptop and I’m trying to connect a basic 1920x1080 external monitor.
When I use the HDMI port on my laptop nothing happens. The monitor doesn’t receive a signal and there is no indication in Qubes that a cable has been plugged in.
I also have a USB-C port which I use to connect to ethernet through a dongle. When I connect the usb-c to ethernet dongle it shows up in my ‘Quebs Devices’ and I don’t have to attach it to anything it starts working immediately and I have wired internet. I assume this is because during installation I checked the box to use sys-net for both networking and usb devices.
I purchased a usb-c to hdmi dongle and while the dongle is detected I still don’t get an image on my external monitor.
Does anyone know how to get my external monitor working? If necessary I can stop using sys-net for usb devices and created a dedicated usb qube (I couldn’t before because wifi wasn’t working and needed usb-c to ethernet but wifi is working now)
