I have a laptop with two monitors: one connected through to VGA the second one connected through HDMI using an adapter from Display Port to HDMI. Because I don't work with the laptop at all and I keep it closed then I have setup them as follow:

  • Monitor 3 (identified by Fedora as 3rd): it's my main screen and it goes to my left
  • Monitor 2 (identified by Fedora as 2nd): is joined with the 3rd monitor and it goes to my right

Sometimes when I disconnect the VGA or the Display Port this configuration is lost and I need to take care of it again and again.

Is there any way to have this setup permanently? I believe that Fedora 25 get rid of XOrg in favor of Wayland.

Any advise?

You can revert back to xorg if really needed.

I'm currently on Korora (a spinoff of Fedora25) and succesfully running on xorg, mainly because of compatibilty with synergy-gtk)

For reverting to xorg on fedora25 read this: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/96134/how-can-i-set-xorg-as-a-default-on-fedora-25/

I'm interested in this topic, since I'm trying a third screen in Korora, which works, however I suspect something of Korara is in the way of displaying my (rotated) monitor windows correctly.
