I am here with a new Notebook (XMG P507) with Kaby-Lake CPU and a Nvidia 1060 graphics card.
Using various Ubuntu systems (16.06/17.04) and installing the nvidia-381 driver leads to the following problem:
Selecting “nvidia” in the PRIME profile leads to a perfectly working system :)
Selecting “intel” in the PRIME profile makes it impossible to use external monitors, the output of “xrandr -q” is just
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
eDP-1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm
1920x1080 60.02*+ 59.93 47.99
1680x1050 59.95 59.88
[ … ]
400x300 60.32 56.34
In the nvidia profile, there are 4 additional DP ports and a HDMI port listed. Seems like the outputs are wired to the Nvidia card. On my previous system (Nvidia 750M GT) all ports were visible in both modes.
With Windows, there is also no problem with using external monitors via Intel card.
so my Question is:
Is there any possibility to connect external monitors in the intel profile? Will it be worth waiting for a new driver release?
