  • Did you try configure it with arandr? – bistoco May 5 at 2:23
  • I just downloaded this and it still is not picking up my HDMI-1 i read that it could have been the adapter that i got that is an HDMI to DP plug. ordered a HDMI to dvi to see if that works. still very new to Linux so i'm probably doing something wrong. – Bradbed May 5 at 3:00
  • If you're using arandr, which abstracts mosts of the complexities of command line and still doesn't work, it's probably the adapter. The other test that you can do is test the monitor that doesn't work for you, on another setup with vga, dp or vgi to check the ports work. – bistoco May 5 at 18:30
