As the title suggests, I am experiencing issues with my Display in Ubuntu 18.04. I have seen somewhat related posts (like this one), but those typically suggest they have several detected displays, where one of them is dubbed 'Unknown Display'.
Well, I only have a single display called 'Unknown Display', which means I:
- cannot add a second/third/etc screen,
- cannot adjust the resolution,
- and cannot adjust the brightness
I would very much like to be able to do the above, obviously, and I was hoping somebody over here might be able to help me out. I have tried out several things, like removing the current drivers in favor of older ones, but I seem to be missing something crucial every time..
Here are some specifics about my system:
- I am running Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.
- I have a
GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile]graphic card.
- I have
- It is a dual boot system, where I left the original Windows copy intact.
Some potentially interesting stats:
