Re: Dell XPS 15 9560 and MX 18

Yes, as described in the first post, I found fixes or workarounds for most issues. It is not ideal, but it works. And you only have to set it up once, unless you plan to reinstall frequently.

Re: Monitor configuration not remembered

The names of the output of the Dell in my script were wrong, so I edited my post. Maybe the Wiki could be updated to.

For example, the following script will check if a second monitor is connected on the output "DP1-2" (which is a monitor connected to a docking station on a Dell...
