It basically asks for a user name and password, perform the installation ...

I ran: xrandr --verbose I was not able to change the mode to 1080p using xrandr "--mode 1920x1080 --rate 60" because it has two flavors, 1080p and 1080i, and 1080i is by default stupidly preferred. DFP5 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0xa1) normal (normal left ...
