How to use two displays?

Post by eleutherius » Mon Oct 08, 2018 10:44 am

Hello, I have laptop with GhostBSD 18, and I want to use HDMI output for another display.
HDMI is works, but I have the same image on two displays.

Xrandr output :

Code: Select all

> # xrandr                                                                   
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 1920 x 1080, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080
default connected 1920x1080+0+0 0mm x 0mm
   1920x1080      0.00*

Did you try Mate Display in System>Preferences>Hardware>Displays?
