Problems with screen controller

Hello.

I installed linux mint with a lot of problems.

When I wanted to start for the first time, linux mint stay at a blackscreen after the login. I solved this installing property controllers for my graphic card. But later, I saw that if I select my integrated graphic card I can use the laptop screen, and if I select the dedicated (nvidia 1050) I can use only and external screen using HDMI port.

I know that the HDMI port is connected to the nvidia graphic card, but I need to use both screens, and I don't know how to solve this.

I can use the two screens in windows, but is not the same in linux.

At this time I'm using the laptop screen because I selected the intel graphic card in Nvidia panel.

Actually I am using linux mint 19.2 xfce. However I had the same problem with linux mint 19.2 MATE.

G'day @rvergel and welcome to linux.org :D

I am moving this Thread to Audio/Video because it is more related to your graphics issues than the Linux Distribution .

However you could tell us which Linux Mint you are using, eg Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon, 19.2 MATE or other.

Good luck

Sorry but that didn't solve my problem.

As you can see in the image attached, I'm using the nvidia graphic card. With this settings I can't use my laptop screen.

If I change to Intel graphic card I can only use the laptop screen.
