Re: HDMI port on Y530 not available

It's working that's amazing. 

 

Doing 

intel-virtual-output -f

 

 

 

enables the external monitor.

Unfortunately, intel-virtual-output is very inefficient solution of external display problem.
To make external display more or less usable I use lightweight desktop environment (MATE) with compositing disabled. With i3 windows manager external display works almost flawlessly.

Alright I see, so basically with this laptop, there is no perfect solution to make external display work really well with another OS than windows ?

If you really need smooth display and don't want to use Nvidia PRIME (where everything is rendered with Nvidia GPU), you can run games, video players or other applications with DISPLAY=:8 environment variable.
In this case you also need to use xinput command to disable keyboard and mouse on laptop display (DISPLAY=:0), because all movements are registered by both displays.
I am not aware about better solutions of this problem.

Alright I see. That's really unfortunate I do need a really smooth extra monitor to be able to work properly on Linux. I guess I will have to return this laptop and buy one that suits my need. It's a pity because I really like it, it's just not good on Linux for my needs. 

 

Anyway Thanks a lot for your help ! That was really appreciated :)

Bonjour,

 

J'ai également ce problème, et ne comprend pas la façon de le résoudre.

 

port HDMI indisponible.

 

Legion-Y530, Ubuntu 18.10, GeForce GTX 1050, driver 418.56.

 

Essayé avec les drivers 390, 418.

 

Cela fait plusieurs jours que j'essaye et je commence à désespérer. Pouvez-vous m'expliquer concrètement comment le résoudre svp?
