    Newbie issue - HDMI is not working on 19.10 server/ rpi 4 install

    Hi,

    Long time lurker, first time poster...

    I'm trying to install 19.10 server on a rpi 4 with 4gb ram.

    I downloaded the ISO and flashed it to an SD Card using Rufus (partition FreeDOS and rest default settings).

    Once RUFUS was done, I put the SD Card into the rpi 4 and plugged ethernet, usb keyboard, monitor in first before plugging in power.

    Lights come on including ethernet but the monitor I have hooked up is not showing any activity.

    I've tried two different SD Cards.

    I feel like I'm missing something small but not sure as I'm fairly new to raspberry pi, especially rpi 4.

    Any suggestions?

    Many thanks!

    Try reintalling lightdm

    sudo apt-get install --reinstall lightdm ubuntu-desktop

    Which video card you have? post the ouput of:

    lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i "VGA"
    Best, Gnusci

    The server release does not even have X, so you are expecting a console to appear on hdmi? Can you ssh into the server? Maybe you really want a desktop release -- you can add anything the server has like a web server.
