I use a Lenovo Thinkpad 530 and archlabs/Windows 10 in Dualboot. I want to extend the screen to VGA. In Windows this works.
In archlabs I use openbox and lightdm.
I try xrandr and there is no monitor recocgnized: any Idea what I missed?

What is your video hardware & driver?

If you wait a bit somebody with experience of such devices may be able to offer better advice.
Ok thanks, i’ve installed bumblebee but i’m not shure how exactly to use it.
I tried it with following wiki
I followed the steps of creation/edit of 20-intel.conf and xorg.conf.nvidia
That makes two of us
It’s probably best for you to post the exact command(s) you have used rather than just linking to a wiki page, also provide the full content of any configuration files and any errors.
So no it works but i didnt change anything between the trys.
I put in the following command:
/usr/bin/vglrun: Zeile 191: hostname: Kommando nicht gefunden (command not found)
maybe its because i used the dockingstation now; i’m not shure if I tried it before with it.
