quick note for my dual displays - xrandr command worth booking
The problem was the mouse translation from laptop to the monitor, annoyance !
So I changed settings, and I got an error when trying to apply the new position.
Solution is given here:
Which led me to issue locally:
> xrandr --current
and then the proper command for my case:
> xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --left-of HDMI1
and bingo, things are back to normal.
