for some unknown reason i cannot use the system settings to keep just one screen on in my linux desktop. to achieve this i run
xrandr --output LVDS1 --off. It works fine. However when i run xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto to turn the screen back on it mirrors both displays. As they are different resolutions i would rather this not occur. I am new to linux and while experimenting with xrandr i already messed up a few settings. Instead troubleshooting myself i would appreciate if someone could supply me the command line that will return the LVDS monitor to its previous position (as a distinct monitor and not mirrored). Thanks in advance.
