I’m trying to get looking glass to capture the non-main monitor in my guest Windows 10 VM. I have a dummy plug for it, but if it’s set to be the main, I cant see security pop up and the stuff Windows does during restarts and shutdowns with updates. So, I have a second monitor plugged into the passthrough gpu that I would like to make the main while LG grabs the secondary screen.
I have seen on the git and on reddit to use the input:
looking-glass-host.exe dxgi:adapter=XXX dxgi:output=YYY but having tried many different combinations of numbers I am not getting any changes to LG, it just continues to show only the main monitor from the guest.
I have also seen to do
looking-glass-host.exe -k to get a display with available options, but after running it nothing happens, just like with the other line. I get the request for acceptance from windows security, then I say yes and nothing happens.
Should I be making an ini or something like the readme says I can do with the linux side? I just don’t seem to get results and I would love to have looking glass as a second monitor to my main, not just a duplicate.
I don’t even see anything running in task manager for looking glass after I stop the auto-start instance, even though LG continues to work. Even if I just run the command normally, like how I used to start it.
Don’t know if it affects anything, but I still have the QXL virt window going while I try to get the second display set up correctly.
