    Command to find maker of monitor

    Hi all,

    I have a Samsung monitor attached to this PC. How can I find the maker with command on Terminal?

    $ sudo lshw
    didn't find it

    ⟫ xrandr
    Code:

    Re: Command to find maker of monitor

    Hi 1fallen's

    Something strange found on my daily working PC. A Dell 25" monitor is connected to this PC via HDMI

    ⟫ hwinfo --monitor
    No printout

    ⟫ hwinfo --monitor --short
    no printout

    ⟫ hwinfo --monitor -short
    Code:
    Usage: hwinfo [OPTIONS]
    Probe for hardware.
    Options:
        --<HARDWARE_ITEM>
            This option can be given more than once. Probe for a particular
            HARDWARE_ITEM. Available hardware items are:
            all, arch, bios, block, bluetooth, braille, bridge, camera,
            cdrom, chipcard, cpu, disk, dsl, dvb, fingerprint, floppy,
            framebuffer, gfxcard, hub, ide, isapnp, isdn, joystick, keyboard,
            memory, modem, monitor, mouse, netcard, network, partition,
            pci, pcmcia, pcmcia-ctrl, pppoe, printer, redasd,
            reallyall, scanner, scsi, smp, sound, storage-ctrl, sys, tape,
            tv, uml, usb, usb-ctrl, vbe, wlan, xen, zip
        --short
            Show only a summary. Use this option in addition to a hardware
            probing option.
        --listmd
            Normally hwinfo does not report RAID devices. Add this option to
            see them.
        --only DEVNAME
            This option can be given more than once. If you add this option,
            only data about devices with DEVNAME will be shown.
        --save-config SPEC
            Store config  for a particular device below /var/lib/hardware.
            SPEC can be a device name, an UDI, or 'all'. This option must be
            given in addition to a hardware probing option.
        --show-config UDI
            Show saved config data for a particular device.
        --map
            If disk names have  changed (e.g. after a kernel update) this
            prints a list of disk name mappings. Note  that  you must have
            used --save-config at some point before for this can work.
        --debug N
            Set debug level to N. The debug info is shown only in the log
            file. If you specify a log file, the debug level is implicitly
            set to a reasonable value.
        --verbose
            Increase verbosity. Only together with --map.
        --log FILE
            Write log info to FILE.
        --dump-db N
            Dump hardware data base. N is either 0 for the external data
            base in /var/lib/hardware, or 1 for the internal data base.
        --version
            Print libhd version.
        --help
            Print usage.
    ⟫ hwinfo --cpu --short
    Code:
    cpu:

    Re: Command to find maker of monitor

    I have not seen this myself so not a lot of help from me I'm afraid:
    About the only suggestion I have is try different cables, and make sure there no bent pins in the connectors. And all connections are tight.
    This is not the same computer as the first post you list here, is it? (With the SAMSUNG SyncMaster)

    This is not the same computer as the first post you list here, is it? (With the SAMSUNG SyncMaster)

    I have to plead ignorance here believe it or not I have never used Dell Products, so this may be a big guessing game for me here.
    But I don't quit.
    This will give you a long list for all video related questions:

    Code:
    xrandr -q --verbose | less
    Look for EDID string for the monitor you want, and copy/paste it to a file I named mine "monitor.txt" and just saved it to my home (maybe there is a better way but this is all I know.)
    You will need edid-decode installed.

    Code:
    sudo apt install edid-decode
    Then use:

    Code:
    edid-decode monitor.txt
    to get all the info about your monitor from EDID string.
    Mine for just the second Monitor.
    Code:
    EDID version: 1.3
    Manufacturer: VIZ Model 67 Serial Number 1XXXXXX(Removed by OP)
    Made in year 2011
    Digital display
    Maximum image size: 58 cm x 32 cm
    Gamma: 2.20
    DPMS levels: Off
    RGB color display
    First detailed timing is preferred timing
    I'm sure you know this already but all monitors must be "ON" and connected first.
    Now if this don't work then there is something different about Dell Monitors.

    Running Xubuntu 17.10, hwinfo --monitor
    shows me nothing, but NVIDIA X Server Settings, under the X Server Display Configuration, correctly identifies my Dell U2412M.
