Fedora :: Unable To Setup 11 Dual Monitors KDE?

Jun 13, 2009

I have a dual-monitor setup with a 1920x1200 lcd on the left and a 1280x1024 lcd on the right. In Fedora 11 on GNOME, using display settings, I can configure them properly.

KDE, however, is refusing to let me configure them as separate monitors. They are stuck permanently in mirrored mode, and I can't adjust positioning or anything. Here is a screenshot of the desktop with krandr running.

Fedora Hardware :: Unable To Use Dual Monitors On F12 Live

Feb 8, 2010

Using the Live F12 disc it runs fine, but my dual monitors are backwards, in other words I have to go off screen to the right to get to the left monitor. I couldn't find anywhere to switch them, only identify them, and change res, and such. Before I commit to installing on a HDD I need to get all the kinks worked out first.

Ubuntu :: Set Wallpapers On Both Monitors In Dual Setup?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a dual setup and just switched from Xubuntus Xfce? to Fluxbox... But now I can't set wallpapers on both my screens anymore. How do I do that? I had to change the Fluxbox menu from Head 1 to Head 2 to get it on my bigger, primary screen. Which is the one getting a wallpaper when I'm setting one.

Here's my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen "Screen0"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"

General :: Switching Between Monitors In Dual-head Setup

Feb 16, 2011

I'm using gnome in a dual-head setup with individual desktops. Is there any way to "jump" to another monitor using the keyboard only? Now the only method I know is to move the mouse pointer to the another screen and click on something there. Can I do something like that without using the mouse?

Ubuntu Installation :: Two Monitors - Dual Video Card Setup?

Jan 9, 2010

I just got another video card from a friend and I wanted to see if I could get it to display a second screen. I have two monitors, both VGA CRT monitors. The first video card is a Geforce 8400gs pci-e and the card given to me is a Geforce FX 5500 pci. I could get them both to work separately under low graphics mode when I go into the bios and switch the video adapter from pci-e to pci, but not together. What to do to make both cards work in harmony?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Dual Monitors With Individual (non-mirrored) Desktops

Dec 17, 2010

I am trying to setup Dual monitors with individual (non-mirrored) desktops. AMDCCCLE will only identify the monitor I want to use as primary as number 2 and the monitor I want to use as secondary as number 1 - I have tasksbars, awm, desktop items configured to use the first screen and the second screen is clear for media use. The choice seems to be determined by what output port on my graphic card.. whatever monitor is attached to the HDMI port is called 1. xrandr can only identify the 2nd monitor - the first monitor is unknown I've attached my xorg.conf

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Supported Graphics Card For Dual Monitors Setup

Jan 31, 2011

I'm busy building a machine now and I'm looking to set up dual monitors because it's something I've always fancied but never had the resources to do. I'm basically looking for advice on choosing a graphics card that will support dual monitors with good driver support under Ubuntu. After a few hours of browsing the forums I determined nVidia were the way to go but I'm honestly not bothered if people want to suggest ATI. I'm not a gamer so really only need the card to support dual monitors. I'll also need to know how to set up the card under Ubuntu and then subsequently how to edit xorg.conf in order to get the dual monitors working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: New Install Killed Dual Monitors - Nvidia Setup Not Working ?

Sep 14, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 on an old system.

Hardware is:

- NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT video card
- Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R motherboard with 3 gig ram, few TB of hard-drive
- dual monitors, both viewsonic vx2235wm, primary on analog, secondary on digital (but whatever, happy to reverse the order)

On the old setup (8.04) the monitors were set up as twinview, 1680x1050 each, no problems. On the new setup (10.04) my old xorg.conf (see below) doesn't work and nvidia xserver settings refuses to detect my second (digital) monitor at any resolution greater than 640x480.

I've tried messing with xorg.conf to no avail and google doesn't appear to be my friend.

Here's the old xorg.conf file that worked in 8.04 but refuses to even boot under 10.04:

Ubuntu :: Unable To Use Dual Monitors After Upgrading To 11.04?

May 3, 2011

I just upgraded to 11.04 from 10.10 (which I had to reinstall after upgrading to 11.04 beta and attempting to install gnome 3 but I digress) and now my monitors are permanantly stuck on clone.When I go into monitor preferences and uncheck same image in all monitors I get a popup error

"The selected configuration for displays could not be appliedrequested position/size for CTRC 148 is outside the allowed limit : position=(1680,0), size=(1680,1050) maximum=(1920,1920)"

What I want to do is set one monitor to 1680x1050 and the other to 1920x1080 but basically it is telling me it needs a resolution higher than this seemingly arbitrary number...in my past adventures with this I was able to change some Xorg.conf file to increase this maximum but I think that was 10.10 and now I cannot find a file that has that setting in it.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Use Separate X Servers Mode For Dual Monitors

May 2, 2011

Prior to upgrading to 11.04 from 10.10, I was using the Seperate X Servers option in nvidia-settings for handling my dual-monitor setup. This mode enabled both monitors to be fully independent, running their own WM and having their own virtual desktops. This was convenient for me as I could keep my web browser on one virtual desktop on one screen, and switch to other virtual desktops without losing it. However, since upgrading to 11.04, this mode no longer functions properly.

The issues I have ran into with it are various:
1: The window manager no longer starts on the second monitor.
2: Any panel applets that were present on the second monitor immediately crashed upon switching over to Ubuntu Classic from Unity, and were unable to be added back to the panel (they would just crash again as soon as they were added)
3: Any application I started on that second monitor from the menus or launcher shortcuts would start without having focus, and could not gain focus through any means (focus remained on the primary monitor, the second monitor's interface would not respond to keystrokes of any sort, mouse-clicking in windows would not give them focus either).
This has essentially completely broken the usability of my system for my work.

Fedora :: Cannot Get Dual Monitors Working

Nov 19, 2009

My Dual G5's psu blew up this weekend, and i refuse to go back to windows, so until i can come up with the $$$ for a new PSU i installed Fedora 10 on an old Dell GX270.

Now, ive got 3 video cards to play with. An Nvidia Geforce4MX, an ancient matrox PCI, and the onboard intel VGA out.

Mind you, ALL of these cards work just fine on their own. All of these will work dual and even tripple monitors in XP. But i hate XP.

Now when following th xinerama tutorial, i took bits and peices from the XORG.conf files of each card to make my own..and ALL I GET on boot is "No Screens Found" so i have to remove matrox card (If plugged in) and reconfigure the X server. otherwise if i dont remove the card i get a blank screen.

Now heres the config Fedora gave me for the working NVidia card (singlehead mind you)

Code:

Now heres the one i came up with for the AGP and Matrox PCI Card:

Code:

Whats interesting is, is when i run the grep command to get the PCI id, it only shows the one card. Same when i run system-config-display, it will only detect one card/one monitor. So that leads me to beleive i have to force Fedora SOMEWHERE before it reads Xorg to detect more than one VGA card.

So right now as i type, i'm running the Nvidia, and the Intel...but the intel is just blank. i checked the log file on Xorg, but see NO intel/Matrox anywhere in the file, which makes me wonder if the system is even seeing it.

I do NOT want to go back to windows...and actually when i get my mac back, i think i'll keep this linux machien chugging on the 2nd LCD channels, just because its been so pleasant to deal with.

Fedora :: F13: Nvidia Wallpaper Spanning With Dual Monitors?

Sep 23, 2010

Ever since upgrading from F11 to F13, wallpaper spanning has been driving me nuts. No matter what the size of the wallpaper, I cannot get it to span two desktops correctly anymore. Most styles (zoom, scale, etc...) cause the image to be duplicated on both screens and the "span" style centers the image between the screens and appears to scale down the image leaving large gaps on either side. It's like the background program doesn't recognize the "virtual resolution".

Fedora Hardware :: Dual Monitors With Open Radeon And F15?

May 31, 2011

The default install of F15 is not detecting my multiple monitor setup properly.I have two dell 17" monitors running on an ATI hd4650. In system settings the display tool does not detect the second monitor. The monitor is working and on but just shows a mirror of the main display.I didn't see an xorg.conf anywhere to try to fiddle with that... so I don't know what to do. Hitting the Detect Displays button does nothing but cause the 2nd display to flicker for a minute.

Fedora :: Firepro 2660 Won't Work With Dual Monitors

I've tried using gnome's configuration util which does detect second monitor and configures it. But when I click apply the second screen goes blank even though I'm able to move mouse to and from it.

Fedora Hardware :: F12 Upgrade - NVidia Card - Dual Monitors - Only One Monitor

Nov 26, 2009

I used preupgrade to upgrade from F11 to F12. In F11, I used the proprietary nVidia drivers from rpmfusion, and they worked well. I have refrained from installing the nVidia drivers in F12, because of the problems reported for users of KDE. I removed my old xorg.conf, which has references to the nVidia driver and to "TwinView," the proprietary method of managing two screens, so as to let X discover both monitors.

Now, however, my second monitor stays black, even though xrandr and KDE RandR show both monitors correctly. Xorg.0.log shows the nouveau driver is loaded. (I also tried to create a new xorg.conf following guidelines from the web, but many of the guidelines are from before xrandr, and I'm not confident I have it right yet.) It seems that X believes I have two monitors, because I can drag a window off into the blackness (and it's never heard from again!) I know that the hardware is working, because I just booted into Windows 7, and I could see the desktop on both windows.

How do I convince X and KDE to display on both monitors?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Dual Boot In 3 SATA Drives Setup

Jun 4, 2010

I have the following PC set up:
Dell 8400 with 3 GB of RAM with 3 160 GB SATA drives:
The first one has Windows XP installed on it.
The second one has been newly formatted and Ubuntu 10.04 has just been installed on it (20 GB / and 6 GB swap) with grub being installed on the first partition and not the master boot record. The remainder will be for storage for Windows.
The third drive is simply storage for Windows.

At this point I am able to boot XP just fine, but I'm not able to boot Linux. I just getting a blinking cursor or the PC just reboots when I choose Linux. I believe I have set up my boot.ini properly using:
C:Bootsectc.lnx="Linux Ubuntu"
After running dd if=/dev/sdc1 of=bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1 and putting that file in place.

For reference, I don't believe this is a Linux problem, as much as I am simply trying to guide the ntldr to be properly pointed to a place where it can boot Linux. When I go into the bios and disable the first and the third hard drives, grub pops right up and I'm able to boot Linux with no problem, so that piece is fine. I think it's just now trying to get the correct syntax so I can boot Linux without having to disable drives and reenable them.

For kicks I even tried these syntax types in boot.ini:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)="Linux11"
(i.e. 2nd disk, 1st partition ...etc...)

I read many troubleshooting documents on dual booting and so forth but I just can't get this right. For reference, I stated the way XP views my Hard Drives in the intro, which seem to be a different order than Linux sees them, yet I believe I've tried all the combos of settings for this to work (yet clearly have not). I have attached the output of boot_info_script*.sh here: [URL]. Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 ..... Devices which don't seem to have a corresponding hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Set Up Dual Monitors?

May 28, 2010

I have a Dell inspiron 1525 laptop with a 1280x800 display and an external 1280x1024 monitor. I'm using 9.04 with openbox. I've done a loooot of online reading about how to get a dual monitor setup using xrandr, and I really don't know what I'm missing here. So here's the deal: I want to have my external monitor on the left of the laptop's display, and of course I want each of them to display different parts of the desktop.

First I set up the right resolution to each one of them (I do it using lxrandr). Typing xrandr -q in a terminal, I get the following:

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Dual Monitors

Apr 21, 2011

I have an asus p5kpl-cm MB. I plugged in a radeon 9200 pci card. In the bios, I can set up:

pci/igd
igd/pci
igd

etc.

This determines which of the 2 displays (pci card or internal graphics on the MB) is the boot display. That determines which comes up with the bios screen and then once booted into ubuntu (10.04), this is the only adapter/monitor seen. The button detect monitors doesn't do anything.

lspci sees both my internal and pci card graphics. So, I can get either to work just fine (auto detected etc.) just not both at the same time.

I've tried all of the 3 above settings, and even when I set it to just igd, lspci still sees both my adapters. It identifies them correctly, and it works perfectly, detecting the monitor and knows the resolutions for each - just not both at the same time.

Does ubuntu know how to automatically configure more than one display w/o doing something else, or must I do something else to get both going together?

Code:
$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31/P35/P31 Express DRAM Controller (rev 10)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 10)

General :: How To Set Up Dual Monitors On Kubuntu 10.04

May 20, 2010

I installed the latest nVidia drivers on my laptop using the 9800M card. The laptop is a Gateway P-7805u and I'm connected to the second monitor using VGA.Also, before installing the nVidia drivers (and just using the basic drivers included with Kubuntu 10.04), basic dual monitor support worked, except I could not enable compositing features for some reason. So I thought the proprietary drivers would fix this.Several issues have arisen since installation:

1) I've clicked through all of the display settings to activate the second screen with absolutely no change.
2) When I try to apply settings and Save Configuration as the nVidia help suggests, I am told that I cannot save to the X.conf file. I assume this is due to innate permissions on my user settings, which I have no idea how to properly configure.
3) I have no idea where to go from here, as most of the fixes I found online involve Linux syntax and verbiage, to which I'm totally clueless after spending over half my life with Windows.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Use A Dual-monitors Correctly

Mar 1, 2010

I'm having trouble setting up dual monitors on my HP Pavilion dv7-1020us laptop, with an Nvidia 9600M GT graphics card, and Ubuntu 9.10. I installed Ubuntu via Wubi, on top of Windows 7. I tried this before on the same laptop when I was using Vista and Wubi, and Ubuntu was able to recognize my Graphics card, and install a proprietary driver. I wasn't able to test dual monitors, though. However, now that I'm using W7 and Ubuntu, it cannot use a dual-monitors correctly. It recognizes the monitor, but it only displays a mirror display of my Laptop monitor, not acting as a separate monitor, like I want it to. I tried messing around with the settings in the display menu, but nothing works. I tried downloading linux drivers for my card from Nvidia's site, but the file is in a .run extension, which I don't know how to install. What should I do to get this working?

Ubuntu :: X11 Configuration For Dual Monitors?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a brand new installation of Ubuntu 10.10. I'm using a GeForce 8600GT graphics chipset. I have two monitors, and my goal here is to have them both working under Ubuntu in their full resolutions, and I've not had any luck with this yet. I've got a Viewsonic VE155s with a native resolution of 1024x768, and a Chimei CMV 221D with a native resolution of 1680x1050. When I first installed Ubuntu, both monitors were working, and the VE155s was working in its native resolution of 1024x768, but the CMV221D was stuck in 640x480.

The Nvidia video configuration utility was not identifying the latter monitor - it only reported it as DFP-0, and doesn't allow any resolution above 640x480 to be set. The mechanism (which has a name which I don't recall) which allows the OS to interrogate the monitor's firmware to find out the monitor manufacturer, model and accepted resolutions and frequencies to use does not seem to have worked. (I previously had the Nvidia driver installed, but I've since switched back to the default open source vesa driver. I won't use the closed Nvidia driver if I don't need to, but if I need to use it to get acceptable performance from this hardware than I will.)

So I did a little bit of reading and I did some hacking of xorg.conf. Previously I had the 15" monitor working in 1024x768 and the 22"
monitor working in 640x480. Now I've got the 22" monitor working in 1680x1050 as desired, and the 15" monitor not working at all. Here's a copy of my xorg.conf. For the sake of brevity I have not included the unnecessary bits such as input devices.

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVidia"
#Driver "nvidia"
