Fusion & ARM Linux - multi-display not possible

hi! 🙂

i am very glad that ubuntu 22.04 ARM now works on M1 within vmware Fusion TP!

the main problem I still have, is, that I can not use two (or more) displays/monitors

both displays show the same

and xrandr shows this:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2560 x 1440, maximum 16384 x 16384
Virtual-1 connected primary 2560x1440+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 60.00 + 60.00
3840x2400 59.97
3840x2160 59.97
2880x1800 59.95
2560x1600 59.99
2560x1440 59.95*
1920x1440 60.00
1856x1392 60.00
1792x1344 60.00
1920x1200 59.88

1400x1050 59.98
1280x1024 60.02
1440x900 59.89

1280x800 59.81
1152x864 75.00
1280x768 59.87
1280x720 59.86
800x600 60.32
640x480 59.94
Virtual-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Virtual-3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Virtual-4 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Virtual-5 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Virtual-6 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Virtual-7 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Virtual-8 disconnected

 

i think i've read somewhere else about this problem - i guess it is a bug in vmware fusion

 

thank you for your attention 🙂

Is this something that works on an Intel Mac?

(IIRC, we deprecated in-guest multi-mon support years ago when Apple changed how 'spaces' and 'desktops' work...)
