Notebook Secondary VGA port

Mohammad BadieZadegan
Hi everybody,
I tried dual monitor setup with this page:
https://www.maketecheasier.com/how-to-setup-dual-monitors-with-xrandr/
But still I can not active my Notebook Secondary VGA port with xrandr.
How can I enable the left side notebook VGA port?
Thanks in advance.

Hi
first use xrandr(1) to find out the "mode" and the output
then:
xrandr --auto --output VGA1 --mode mode --left-of output

Anyway the man(1) xrandr(1) is your friend.

So you understand that instead of "VGA1" and "mode" you should have put
the name of output that corresponds to your secondary VGA port and the
mode of your monitor, right?

But you have only one output detected, so no luck anyway.  Either
something is wrong with your setup or your hardware is not supported.

Your device is an NVIDIA - they are poorly supported due to the
manufacturer not providing good documentation to the developers.

While you have "unknown product" in dmesg output vga1 is unlikely to
work in X.

Sorry that's not much help...

Thanks For Hints,
I tried 3 month ago FreeBSD on my notebook and it supported by it, Does it
possible to copy its driver to OpenBSD from FreeBSD?

No - in a fashion similar to the Linux proprietary binary-only driver,
NVIDIA provides one for FreeBSD, too.
