I am a Blender3D student and really need my second monitor to function for tutorials and additional workspace
I have an AMD RX 560 and finally got running amdgpu-pro drivers working correctly.
I’m trying to utilize my main workstations GPU HDMI port to a second DVI monitor. No display at all in the OS, but it does display in BIOS and Ubuntu boot screen.
some info on my system:
X Server 1.19.6 modinfo amdgpu | grep version version: 126.96.36.1998 srcversion: 533BB7E5866E52F63B9ACCB OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: Radeon RX 560 Series OpenGL core profile version string: 4.6.13542 Core Profile Context 188.8.131.528 Vulkan version 1.1.73
My main display is an Acer DVI monitor. I have confirmed that dual display works fine in my DE with a small KUMAN 7" HDMI touch display I use for my Raspberry Pi project but I cannot get a second monitor to display using an HDMI to DVI cable. I know the cable is good because it works with my Pi’s and my kid’s Linux Mint machine (it has an Nvidia GPU with only HDMI output).
Is this a known issue? Is there a work around?
Thanks for your time.
