Bounty: 50

For a couple of years now I haven’t been able to get my LG Flatron W2261VP to work as an external monitor for my ThinkPad T460s running Kubuntu (currently 18.04.3 with Kernel 4.15.0). It’s connected through HDMI since the T460S doesn’t have a VGA slot.

In the beginning, I plugged in the HDMI cable and the monitor was recognized in the system settings, but I couldn’t turn it on. Every once in a while I tried again and sometimes the monitor didn’t even appear in the system settings. Currently it does. But as soon as I plug in the cable, the system partly freezes/slows down and it’s impossible to work, because the laptop monitor turns black every couple of seconds. The external monitor remains black and sometimes displays a messages about HDMI power saving mode.

I have been able to connect other external monitors through HDMI though. I also checked the cable with another machine. For a short time, when Kernel 4.10 was installed, the problem disappeared (see Can't get external monitor to work through HDMI (Thinkpad T460s, Kubuntu)).

I have also tried using the monitor with Live USB (both Ubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 18.04), but the problem is the same.

Any ideas for a solution? I attach some command results.

Bounty: 50

For a couple of years now I haven’t been able to get my LG Flatron W2261VP to work as an external monitor for my ThinkPad T460s running Kubuntu (currently 18.04.3 with Kernel 4.15.0). It’s connected through HDMI since the T460S doesn’t have a VGA slot.

Every once in a while I tried again and sometimes the monitor didn’t even appear in the system settings. Currently it does. But as soon as I plug in the cable, the system partly freezes/slows down and it’s impossible to work, because the laptop monitor turns black every couple of seconds. The external monitor remains black and sometimes displays a messages about HDMI power saving mode.

I have been able to connect other external monitors through HDMI though. I also checked the cable with another machine. For a short time, when Kernel 4.10 was installed, the problem disappeared (see Can't get external monitor to work through HDMI (Thinkpad T460s, Kubuntu)).

I have also tried using the monitor with Live USB (both Ubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 18.04), but the problem is the same.

Any ideas for a solution? I attach some command results.

#StackBounty: #kubuntu #multiple-monitors #hdmi #thinkpad Why can't I (still) get my external monitor to work through HDMI? (Thinkp…

Bounty: 50

For a couple of years now I haven’t been able to get my LG Flatron W2261VP to work as an external monitor for my ThinkPad T460s running Kubuntu (currently 18.04.3 with Kernel 4.15.0). It’s connected through HDMI since the T460S doesn’t have a VGA slot.

In the beginning, I plugged in the HDMI cable and the monitor was recognized in the system settings, but I couldn’t turn it on. Every once in a while I tried again and sometimes the monitor didn’t even appear in the system settings. Currently it does. But as soon as I plug in the cable, the system partly freezes/slows down and it’s impossible to work, because the laptop monitor turns black every couple of seconds. The external monitor remains black and sometimes displays a messages about HDMI power saving mode.

I have been able to connect other external monitors through HDMI though. I also checked the cable with another machine. For a short time, when Kernel 4.10 was installed, the problem disappeared (see Can't get external monitor to work through HDMI (Thinkpad T460s, Kubuntu)).

I have also tried using the monitor with Live USB (both Ubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 18.04), but the problem is the same.

Any ideas for a solution? I attach some command results.

Bounty: 50

For a couple of years now I haven’t been able to get my LG Flatron W2261VP to work as an external monitor for my ThinkPad T460s running Kubuntu (currently 18.04.3 with Kernel 4.15.0). It’s connected through HDMI since the T460S doesn’t have a VGA slot.

In the beginning, I plugged in the HDMI cable and the monitor was recognized in the system settings, but I couldn’t turn it on. Every once in a while I tried again and sometimes the monitor didn’t even appear in the system settings. Currently it does. But as soon as I plug in the cable, the system partly freezes/slows down and it’s impossible to work, because the laptop monitor turns black every couple of seconds. The external monitor remains black and sometimes displays a messages about HDMI power saving mode.

I have been able to connect other external monitors through HDMI though. I also checked the cable with another machine. For a short time, when Kernel 4.10 was installed, the problem disappeared (see Can't get external monitor to work through HDMI (Thinkpad T460s, Kubuntu)).

I have also tried using the monitor with Live USB (both Ubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 18.04), but the problem is the same.

Any ideas for a solution? I attach some command results.

For a couple of years now I haven’t been able to get my LG Flatron W2261VP to work as an external monitor for my ThinkPad T460s running Kubuntu (currently 18.04.3 with Kernel 4.15.0). It’s connected through HDMI since the T460S doesn’t have a VGA slot.

Every once in a while I tried again and sometimes the monitor didn’t even appear in the system settings. Currently it does. But as soon as I plug in the cable, the system partly freezes/slows down and it’s impossible to work, because the laptop monitor turns black every couple of seconds. The external monitor remains black and sometimes displays a messages about HDMI power saving mode.

I have been able to connect other external monitors through HDMI though. I also checked the cable with another machine. For a short time, when Kernel 4.10 was installed, the problem disappeared (see Can't get external monitor to work through HDMI (Thinkpad T460s, Kubuntu)).

I have also tried using the monitor with Live USB (both Ubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 18.04), but the problem is the same.

Any ideas for a solution? I attach some command results.

#StackBounty: #kubuntu #multiple-monitors #hdmi #thinkpad Why can't I (still) get my external monitor to work through HDMI? (Thinkp…

Bounty: 50

For a couple of years now I haven’t been able to get my LG Flatron W2261VP to work as an external monitor for my ThinkPad T460s running Kubuntu (currently 18.04.3 with Kernel 4.15.0). It’s connected through HDMI since the T460S doesn’t have a VGA slot.

In the beginning, I plugged in the HDMI cable and the monitor was recognized in the system settings, but I couldn’t turn it on. Every once in a while I tried again and sometimes the monitor didn’t even appear in the system settings. Currently it does. But as soon as I plug in the cable, the system partly freezes/slows down and it’s impossible to work, because the laptop monitor turns black every couple of seconds. The external monitor remains black and sometimes displays a messages about HDMI power saving mode.

I have been able to connect other external monitors through HDMI though. I also checked the cable with another machine. For a short time, when Kernel 4.10 was installed, the problem disappeared (see Can't get external monitor to work through HDMI (Thinkpad T460s, Kubuntu)).

I have also tried using the monitor with Live USB (both Ubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 18.04), but the problem is the same.

Any ideas for a solution? I attach some command results.
