Wayland is a significant problem.

I did a re-install (SLED15) and installed GNOME w/o wayland and now I get output to both monitors, but they are duplicates and the system doesn't recognize them individually so that I can get into extended mode. Or set them to a better resolution.

Here are some diagnostics I ran. I do not know if they will mean anything, but I was trying to figure out why I have this situation.

Code:
 lspci -nnk| egrep -A3 "VGA|3D"

What I would like to get to is:

  1. Left monitor as primary, right monitor as secondary with the appropriate resolutions for each.
  2. Primary with a systray/taskbar and the ability to minimize to it
  3. Behavior similar to "Windows 7" for a display so my wife is happy with this


The more stuff I try the more my head hurts. I don't want to do another install.
I tried xrandr, and it was telling me I only had one monitor, so trying to use it to config for better -- I just was spinning my wheels as it were.

I know that SLED15 works and can work quite well as my temporary desktop system -- SLED15 works GREAT once I added another GB of RAM (now at 5GB). 4GB was just not enough. And it is running with dual monitors, one on a KVM Switch so I share it with my employer's laptop.

Anyone know what I am missing from the install that I can get Yast to load and apply, or any config stuff (and where is the doc for it so I can get it right)?
