A few days ago I decided I wanted to install Antergos on my laptop. I downloaded the latest ISO file and installed it. I installed the nvidia drivers and got it to work. I used the following command:
pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-settings
I plugged in a HDMI cable and it worked great. I was able to detect the display by using:
And the command
showed me that the nvidia drivers where installed for my graphics card (gtx1050).
However, when I lock or reboot my computer, the lightdm greeter shows up on my external monitor. This even occurs when I haven't connected an external monitor. I'll get a black screen and even the backlight is turned off. If I switch to the terminal by using
Ctrl + Alt + F1-F6
I'm able to use commands as usual. When I switch back by using
Ctrl + Alt + F7
the greeter won't show up and my internal display is turned off again.
I tried adding the following to the /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf file:
Does anyone know how I could fix this?
Please let me know if you need more information.
EDIT: changed 'Ctrl +' to 'Ctrl + Alt + '.
