Tip: How to detect the used monitor connectors thru the IGEL Linux

Hi Folks,

you need to figure out the names of the used Monitor connectors (DVI, Displayport, HDMI or VGA) and/or you run into issues if you want to configure the display setup by your own and never got it to work?

Open the IGEL Setup and create a Terminal Session in Accessories, make sure that the Display Setup is fully set to Auto in the User interface configuration.

Now start the Terminal Session and login as root, enter the command: “xrandr -q”; this will give you a list which Monitor connectors are used and the supported resolutions. Now you can configure your display setup as required.

Cheers

Michael
