Second display not detected
Last modified: 2016-12-20 12:42:44 EST
Description of problem: Second display not detected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 23
Linux dhcp-172-29-60-183 4.2.8-300.fc23.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Dec 15 16:49:06 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Hardware: HP Envy, dual boot Win10, intel i7 quad core, intel graphics
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up and plug in hdmi cable *or* plug in hdmi cable and power up
2. In KDE, go to System Settings -> Monitor and Display *or* in GNOME go to "Display Settings"
3. Notice that only the on-board display is noted.
External display is not detected.
A second display.
There's nothing in /var/log/messages that indicates it's detected (I don't know where else to look). The display does not detect the computer (e.g. it says "In Power Save mode. Press on any key or move mouse.")
The external display is detected and works fine in Win 10 and the live version of Linux Mint 17.3 (KDE 4.3) on the same box.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
