HDMI connection to TV with Linux Mint


With Windows, connecting a computer to TV with HDMI is plug-and-play, but when I connect my laptop with Linux Mint to TV, only the wallpaper appears on TV screen. No desktop icons, no windows or videos appear. Is it a driver issue? Thanks for any help you might have.

WheelingfeelingEd,

What laptop do you have?

If it has Intel graphics, it may need one of these drivers:

https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads

Make sure that all software is up-to-date.

In Terminal:

Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Check for available drivers:

System Settings ->Administration->Device Drivers

You could also try installing “arandr”:

Code:
sudo apt-get install arandr
In Terminal, what is the output of:

Code:
xrandr

arandr

HDMI Problem

My laptop is an HP 15-d035dx, with Intel Pentium N3520 2.17 GHz processor and with Intel Integrated HD Graphics card. I'll try your suggestions. Thanks, beachboy.
