Have you connected your laptop to large size monitor ?
Manjaro drivers does not work , I have spent weeks on getting it to work. But with no success

I am using Manjaro 20 XFCE with a dual monitor setup, Lenovo T470 laptop and Dell 24" monitor. It worked out of the box although I had a slight challenge with closing the laptop lid. Solved it by editing a conf file. Manjaro KDE edition was flawless. I have not tested Gnome yet.
