Currently I am learning how to use Ubuntu, and while I am using Ubuntu 17.10. My HDMI connection to the Acer Monitor works perfectly fine. However, Ubuntu 17.10 has some problems about apt-get updates on my machine.

So I have to switch to Ubuntu 16.04. Unfortunately, in Ubuntu 16.04, it can not recognize my HDMI-connection to the Monitor.

I don't know why. Although, I tried different solutions already, but It did not change much. solution: https://askubuntu.com/questions/966883/vga-not-listed-in-xrandr-output-projector-not-working-intel-kabylake-graphics/968522#968522

And I hate to admit, but I don't want to mess around with xconfig, that gave me a headache with a log-in loop.

If anyone can help - I really appreciate.

  • Ubuntu 17.10 is like a transition Version, which is very short lived. 18.04 would be a better consideration over 17.10. You should get at least what you can with 17.10, plus other enhancements and bug fixes. You'll also get Long Term Support to boot. Version 16.04 wouldn't be a bad idea, I'm just curious why you are choosing to downgrade over upgrading... especially when you've already had problems with the 16.04 version. – L. D.

  • @L.D.James Sorry, I haven't got back to this forum for awhile. In Ubuntu 17.10, there are some problems about apt-get updates on my machine, and I don't know if It is fixed yet. And fortunately, I fixed the HDMI connection problem by itself. – anhbeo Aug 27 '18 at 17:41
