Outputs are rendered at wrong position auf X screen #3290
URL to a logfile as per https://i3wm.org/docs/debugging.html:
What I did:
I am using two outputs
What I saw:
i3 and xrandr agree on what monitors are enabled and where they are. An exerpt from
but the workspace "0:tasks" is actually shown (and works) on HDMI2.
The mouse movement works as expect (i.e. the mouse enters HDMI2 from the bottom, when it leaves eDP1 at the top, but to send a mouse event to a window on workspace "0:tasks" if have to click on the corresponding spot on eDP1, where the window is not shown. The mouse movement is restricted to the area of the two monitors as expected.
The workspace "1" is nowhere to be seen, but I can move the focus and windows there and back. It feels like it is rendered on the virtual screen above my external monitor HDMI2. But of course according to xrandr that's outside of the Xscreen.
eDP1 remains to show what ever was visible there before reconfiguring the monitors. It remains frozen that way, with the exception of showing the mouse cursor, when moved there.
What I expected instead:
This problem is very weird, because all debugging seems to indicate everything works as expected, but what I see is completely different and disfunctional.
I would be glad about any hints on how to debug this further.
