[Bug 1292036] Re: Displayport on Thinkpad T420s is not usable


I was able to test with the latest 4.3 rc3 kernel. The output of xrandr
is no different to that above and neither lxrandr nor arandr was able to
detect an external screen as they usually are when I plug them in on the
VGA port.

  Displayport on Thinkpad T420s is not usable

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm trying to connect an external screen to my thinkpad T420s. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and here is the output of xrandr:

  $ xrandr
  Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1600 x 900, maximum 32767 x 32767
  LVDS1 connected primary 1600x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 309mm x 174mm
     1600x900       60.0*+   40.0  
     1440x900       59.9  
     1360x768       59.8     60.0  
     1152x864       60.0  
     1024x768       60.0  
     800x600        60.3     56.2  
     640x480        59.9  
  VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
  VIRTUAL1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

  LVDS1 is the LCD-display on the laptop. This is the output of lspci:

  $ lspci | grep VGA
  00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
  01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF119M [NVS 4200M] (rev ff)

  The screen recognises that something is plugged into the DisplayPort
  but Ubuntu is unable to send output to it. It's probably related to
  the whole dual graphics card thing.

  Thank you for reading this bug!
