Dual Monitor Support

Nothing. No error nothing. Just executed the command

Ok, this means that lightdm is not the cause.

I am sorry but my memory fails me: What Graphics card are you using?

Thanks, ok can you try in terminal

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

Then reboot and test.

If no luck after that, I can only suggest changing the kernel to an earlier version or a much later one- and then I have run out of ideas.

:joy: :joy:
it says mesa-utils is already the newest version (8.4.0-1).

Ok, in that case, take the second VGA monitor and grab a hammer…

:joy: :joy:
Any ways Thanks for all your efforts… :v:

Aside from Possibly the Kernel being updated to 5.6 or to 5.0
I do not know what else to suggest. I am at a loss.
You can use the earlier Free Versionof Ukuu to change the kernel

Okhayy…maybe I will do it later

I resisted posting any flippant remarks whilst you two were seriously in middle of that investigation. But that was my exact question the first time I drove a car in USA. :rofl:

I am really sorry to have raised your hopes. I’m not that good.

Edit:
I now feel guilty keeping you both in suspense before, so have started doing some searches.
This refers to dell and nvidia graphics, but just looking for something that may trigger a spark that may lead towards an ultimate solution.
I have gone back through this thread and can see no reference to “secure boot” question. That seems to be a solution turned up here:

I don’t expect anyone on Zorin to have “secure boot” set, so probably a dead end.
Don’t know if anything elese in that dell thread may trigger any urika! result.

More:
But refers to Ubuntu MATE 18.04.
