Login screen does not display on external screen

Asked by Akerbeltz on 2019-01-09

I have an external monitor connected to my Ubuntu laptop via a VGA cable. Before the upgrade to 18.04.1, when I fired up the laptop, the login screen would correctly display on the external monitor (as long as the cable was connected) but since the upgrade, the login screen only displays on the laptop screen. Once I enter the user password, it automatically flips to the external montior but not before.

This is probably a bug but I'll be jigswiggered if i can find a way of reporting a bug of this nature.
