    [SOLVED] xrandr overrides --panning setting for HDMI display

    I found out that I have to disable hybrid graphics in BIOS in order for nvidia to pick up my internal display, because otherwise it's governed by the Intel UHD display device which elides nvidia's detection. According to the sacred texts (archwiki), I could have tried adding an undetected...

    [SOLVED] xrandr overrides --panning setting for HDMI display

    ok so now i see X Server and X Screen 0 information, so it was a problem having no xorg.conf. Maybe the solution lies in how i configure that, because now with my HDMI-1-0 plugged in i have no use of my built-in display; xrandr -q doesn't even see eDP-1 anymore: $ xrandr -q Screen 0: minimum 8 x...

    [SOLVED] xrandr overrides --panning setting for HDMI display

    i have tried the above command exactly with no luck; somehow HDMI-1-0 sees that with eDP-1 at 1920x0, the screen size becomes 3840x1080, and thus sets its panning parameter accordingly... however, i didn't realize i could control the displays through my nvidia driver... lol (edit: although in...

    [SOLVED] xrandr overrides --panning setting for HDMI display

    @f33dm3bits i tried arandr once, and not only did it fail to resolve the issue, but also after running it nothing i did with xrandr would do anything until after a reboot so i just uninstalled it. it's nothing more than a front-end to xrandr anyway so i really don't think it's necessary here, i...

    [SOLVED] xrandr overrides --panning setting for HDMI display

    I've hooked up a HDMI display to my laptop, and it almost works, except that my HDMI display seems to overlap with my primary display such that it ignores my --panning option. Both my internal eDP-1 display and my HDMI-1-0 display are 1920x1080 and i'm trying to place my HDMI display on the...

    [solved] picom blurs maim!

    I just recently discovered maim, a more updated and better-looking replacement for scrot. The problem I'm having is that maim overlays my entire screen in order to do its thing, which gets caught by picom, my compositor, and I have background-blur enabled for transparent windows, so maim...

    [SOLVED] I broke my bootloader?

    [SOLVED] I broke my bootloader?

    I'm using a ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen2 with Artix Linux. It's been going good for several months. I recently tried updating my firmware with "fwupdmgr install" on the official Lenovo cab file and it told me there were no compatible devices. I eventually gave up on using fwupd and created a usb...

    make: gcc: Permission denied -- what?

    I rebooted and now it works. ¯\_༼ ಥ ‿ ಥ ༽_/¯ No idea why or what's actually different, because I had rebooted before. The only thing I know for sure is different is that I removed /usr/sbin from my PATH but only in ~/.profile (it's still in my PATH because of something else [and `which gcc`...

    make: gcc: Permission denied -- what?

    I'm clean out of ideas and I think I will just either reinstall my os on the X1 or just use the t420 until some updates come out, and hope that the process of installing the new version of make or gcc or kernel will magically fix it. :c

    make: gcc: Permission denied -- what?

    @Alexzee I don't think rbenv is the issue... I actually have another computer with the same exact OS (Artix), WM, rbenv, Ruby, gcc, and make, all installed the same way, but on the other machine it works just fine. This is also an issue I've had with trying to compile C programs (in this case...

    make: gcc: Permission denied -- what?

    henlo all I am having a bit of trouble getting gcc to run via make. I discovered this problem while trying to install a ruby gem, which invokes make to build the extensions, and got the "make: gcc: Permission denied" error. I have since experimented with a C++ hello world project and then a C...
