First post, Hey!, hope I’m doing this right.
I use i3 on Qubes 4.1
When I plug in a second Monitor through HDMI to my Laptop the main screen gets mirrored on the second monitor.
A refresh seems to happen when I type in the command
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --auto --right-of eDP-1 but nothing changes, the second Monitor still mirrors.
Another issue I have is that as soon as I plug in the HDMI cable the Network Symbol in the Task bar bottom right disappears. sys-net is still running and connection is still working though.
What’s the full output of
Not the full output, had to type by hand. Did a quick google but am struggling with how to copy out of the dom0 xterm terminal.
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384x16384
eDP-1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 309mm x 174mm
1920x1080 60.01*+ 60.01 59.97 59.96 59.93 40.01
HDMI-1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 16mm x 9 mm
1920x1080 60.00 50.00 59.94 59.93 24.00 23.98*
To copy out of dom0, select the text then use “CTRL+Shift+C”, go in the clipboard widget and click on “Copy dom0 clipboard”. When done, you can paste everywhere you want with “CTRL+Shift+V”.
Can you try this command:
xrandr --output eDP-1 --primary --output HDMI-1 --left-of eDP-1
Used your command and replaced “–left-of” with “–right-of” and it does properly extends now. Thanks. I’ll look into what exactly I did wrong.
Status bar is on the second screen now and the network symbol still missing.
I’m guessing I have to change the position of the “–primary” option to get the status bar on the correct display?
I use the following in my i3 config in “bar”:
It should work like that. If not, then you can switch the primary flag and see if it changes the bar placement.
For the widget, this is a known bug on Qubes i3 unfortunately. If you restart sys-net, it should appear again.
