I have a question regarding setup of xrandr with multiple monitors. I'm trying to get my new external monitor to work with my laptop.
When I type the commands to use the external monitor to the left of my laptop, the external monitor comes up, but only with a static screen shot from the moment the command was run.
I can move the mouse over the second screen but can't change workspace or run applications on the second monitor. I'm running i3 on an installation of Linux Mint 20.3.
I just got the monitor and i'm new to multi monitor setups. If anyone could help, providing they understand this message, that would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
