      Hi, Rex! You’ve had issues with your video, right? Well, I got the same problem when I connect my 2nd monitor sometimes does not detect it or I have to wait a time and afterward, I can use the combination super+p, do you know how to fix it?

      • rex everett tibus

        Do you mean your using two monitors at the same time? If so, I am sorry I can’t help you because I have never used two monitors simultaneously on Linux. I did use a projector and a monitor but I was using Microsoft Windows and Windows detected both projector and monitor so it went well. But in Linux? Sorry man.
