I have Ubuntu 19.04 (not relevant, I tried it with ubuntu 18.04 and it didn't help). In windows this setup works fine, so it's not hardware or adapter issue... I have Intel Graphics.

I'm trying to connect 2 screens to my laptop with usb-c adapter (that support dual monitor setup). the external screens are mirrored and appears as only one screen in the settings.

xrandr output:

Also, this is system issue and not the desktop-env (gnome) but there is my ~/.config/monitors.xml file contents

  • Are you sure that two individual outputs are supported in your configuration? I ask this because I own a USB C docking station with 3 display connectors (DP,HDMI,D-SUB), but the latter two share the same internal DP connection so I can only have individual outputs when one monitor is connected to DP. – danzel Sep 17 '19 at 10:24
  • Extending the screens is working in Windows with the same setup. I have docking station with three inputs (2xHDMI, 1xVGA), and all the combinations works in Windows but not in my Ubuntu... – Nadav Shabtai Sep 17 '19 at 10:36
