Multi Display on Manjaro KDE
#1
Has anyone experienced problems connecting an external displays to their PBP in KDE?  Mine just mirrors the desktop and I don't see any options to extend it or change the resolution.  Is there any applications I can install on Manjaro to make configuration of the second (or third) display easy?

Thanks,
Karl

I guess it's safe to say that you are using XFCE spin with fbturbo? (fbturbo for this effect / xfce because it's more prominent to keep fbturbo on it compared to KDE spin).

For whatever reason, when using fbturbo the external display setup should prepared in `xorg.conf` . I've managed to find only scant and half-working solutions from Raspberry Pi threads which use fbturbo to little success.

Multi-screen setup should work as usual (or as usual as it can with some resolution weirdness) if go the Panfrost route.

For multi-screen setup, I moved from xfce fbturbo to xfce panfrost. Now, I have working multi-screen, but my kernel does not seem to like it too much. It constantly logs:

I'm just looking to setup an external display with ease. Cloning the desktop is not what I need. I seems like this is not an ideal laptop for presentations, unless you use a cloned screen.

I got it to work now, but one of my usb-c dongles is not very reliable. Sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn't. Can the usb-c video output drive 2 1080p external screens since it supports 4k?

I switched to the mesa-git (panfrost) from fbturbo.

Thanks

Cannot drive 2 1080p external screen even supports 4K

you might consider: the 5.6 git branch has some significant dts changes which have improved hdmi handling for me on debian. also not sure if rockchip/dptx.bin is built into the kernel for manjaro.
