I’ve had the problem, i can’t configure the monitor-setup in Linux-Mint with a closed Display. The Main-Settings are only available at the main-screen .. and that is closed.

But no problem, right click at the background and select “open terminal”. In the terminal enter:


then scroll down till the settings-entry (screenshot in german)

Then click “Start” (or “Starten” in my case 😉 )

The settings are now available on that screen .. feel free to adjust.

Have a nice day
