How are you adding or attempting to add the external monitors with the default drivers?

Have you done any research on setting up this laptop with external monitors in linux if so what have you found?

What are the tech specs and model/type of the external monitors and cables used?

My laptop display is working. With nouveau or Nvidia driver. But the external monitors are not found and don’t receive a signal.

If I install bumblebee then the whole system crashes at boot.

The displays are LG 25UM58-P.

I tried Ubuntu 18.04.2 on the same setup and then the displays work. Only showing as display driver is the Intel 630 instead of gtx 1060
