Dual booting on a MacBook Pro late 2015 model (11,4) works great with arch linux using the Antergos distribution. Though I have two basic issues related to the display resolutions:
- xrandr settings to not persist after a logout/reboot
- External monitors break xrandr settings almost every time and sometimes completely lockup and crash my screen making me have to restart
To start, I set the scaling factor for the displays to
1 which seem to be the way to add support for HiDPI screens. Note I have tried with
2 but have similar issues.
I have managed to get the proper xrandr settings with no external monitors by changing the scaling to
1.25 and updating the panning as well. Typically when connecting one external display, it also shows part of my primary screen. I have not yet tried adding my second display (both via the 2 display ports).
Ideally i have one monitor above my laptop screen, and the second is to the right of the first external monitor. I want to try and make a script that runs whenever monitors are unplugged or plugged in to properly set their state, as well as on login. But havent been able to get one to work properly.
I was hoping to see what setups others have accomplished to do this.
