I have a Dell Latitude e6420 laptop with a discrete Nvidia NVS 4200m graphics card in addition to an Intel HD 3000.

When at home, I use a docking station which is connected to another monitor. I used to have my monitor connected to the docking station via DVI which worked perfectly fine. But as I recently got a new monitor (Dell P2418D) with a resolution which is too high for DVI, I attempted to connect it to the docking station via Displayport.

When using the new monitor (connected to the docking station via Displayport) under Windows 10 (I have a Manjaro/Windows dual-boot system), it works fine. However, if I try to use it under Linux, it is recognized by xrandr, but the monitor doesn't recognize any input signal:

(The external monitor is DP-1-1.)

As I suspected the graphics driver to be the problem, I used mhwd to switch from "video-linux" (which is basically nouveau) to the proprietary driver "video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-390xx-bumblebee".

However, using this driver, the external monitor (along with several other outputs) was no longer shown. The output of xrandr:

Using another driver (video-nvidia-390xx), the external monitor worked fine, but the laptop's own monitor (which was LVDS-1/LVDS1 in the previous xrandr outputs) was no longer shown:

DP-3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

(The external monitor is DP-2)

This confirmed my assumption that I was dealing with a diver-issue but didn't solve my problem (as I need to use the monitor of the laptop for obvious reasons).

Furthermore, this solution using intel-virtual-output (w/ the "video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-390xx-bumblebee" driver) didn't work either.

Another solution I tried was using bbswitch (w/ the "video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-390xx-bumblebee" driver) to turn the discrete graphics card on and then running sudo systemctl restart display-manager but the external monitor still didn't show up in xrandr.

How can I get both monitors (external and laptop monitor) to work at the same time?
Why is the monitor recognized using the "video-linux" driver but I can't get it to receive any input?
Why does the monitor work with the proprietary "video-nvidia-390xx" driver but not with the (also proprietary) "video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-390xx-bumblebee" driver?

The output of inxi -Fxxxz with the "video-linux" driver
inxi -G w/ "video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-390xx-bumblebee"
inxi -G w/ "video-nvidia-390xx"

  • GreenSmurf, it's OK to post a link to mountains of text, say at Google Drive, when it overwhelms what can easily be read in a question. Excellent detail, though! – K7AAY Dec 26 '18 at 21:13

    @K7AAY I moved the output of the inxi commands to pastebin, thanks for the suggestion – GreenSmurf Dec 26 '18 at 21:42

I just tried this solution again. However, I changed /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia before running optirun intel-virtual-output and it worked this time. The Archwiki didn't mention that this must be done beforehand so I had only changed the configuration files afterwards and re-running optirun intel-virtual-output probably didn't work as there was already an instance of it running.
