Oct 20, 2010

i have a laptop and i plunged an external monitor into it. I want to obtain a virtual desktop[ I will privede more debugging info below

video card
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200M]

Driver:open source radeon driver distribution kubuntu 10.04

I tried this:

xrandr --output LVDS --mode 1280x800 --pos 0x0 --output VGA-0 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of LVDS --pos 1280x0

xrandr: screen cannot be larger than 1920x1920 (desired size 3200x1080)

Googling about this error i found a old post,it could be outfated that sugested editing xorg.conf. I created a xorg.conf using "Xorg -configure" and i modified the screen section to this:

Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24

Debian Multimedia :: Xrandr Rotate Kills X Leaves Monitors Blank

Feb 26, 2011

I have a dual Monitor Setup, both SXGA LCDs, one rotated left. With kernels and Xservers available from debian making settings appropriate kills X and apparently leaves modesetting and keyboard missconfigured - monitors say: no signal and it is not possible to switch to any VT until sysrq-unraw (alt-print-r) is pressed, which makes the system responding to keyboard, but still leaves the screens blank. Restarting the display manager sets a working mode with both screens showing the same.

Hardware :: Triple Monitors Xorg With AMD&NVIDIA: XRANDR And Xinerama Not Working?

Mar 24, 2011

I'm trying to set up a tri monitor setup. Unfortunately I must use 2 cards, one an AMD HD4350 and a PCI Geforce FX200. (Old skool I know) Due to the restrictions, I am forced to use the open source drivers (else nvidia glx will clash).

1: Use XRANDR to span the displays (this is what I did previous to the introduction of the third monitor and nvidia card to my system) I tried to do this, by setting up a second X screen on the NVIDIA card, disabling Xinerama; but after much googling I can't figure out the syntax for panning across 2 screens (X screens) in XRANDR, even tho it's >1.3, which supposedly supports multi card output.

2:Use Xinerama, sacrificing randr, and composite extensions. I also attempted to do this, with some limited success. I could get the NVIDIA screen to be right of the ATI, but I couldn't get 2 independent outputs running on the ATI card, even with "ZapohHeads" appended to one of the device sections for my ATI card.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Monitors Multi-Display Not Working Well?

Jun 22, 2011

I'm trying to get 4 monitors working in Ubuntu 11.04 the way I would like to. I have two Radeon video cards with two monitors connected to each. With proprietary ATI drivers and the Catalyst Control Center I'm able to see all the monitors and Have Multi-Display setups, but they're separated for each video card. I can move items to and from Monitor 1 to Monitor 2, and Monitor 3 to Monitor 4. I'm not able to move windows from 2 to 3 or 4. The two separate display setups have their own set of workspaces too. I've tried enabling xinerama, but when I log back in after a restart the screen is just black and I'm forced to reboot manually. The two separate displays wouldn't be that much of a problem except that my keyboard doesn't seem to work on any application opened on monitors 3 and 4 after I've clicked on something in Monitor 1 or 2.

Below is one of the configs I've been messing around with:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
#Screen "amdcccle-Screen[2]-0" 3840 0
#Screen "amdcccle-Screen[1]-1"
Identifier "Layout0"

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.

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

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?

Here's my xorg.conf:

Fedora :: F15 Still Crashes On Multi Monitor Setup

Jun 5, 2011

I have asked about this issue before to no avail but since then I have been able to narrow down the main cause of the crashes. My setup:

HD5770 - Running 2 19" LCD's
HD3300 onboard Running 1 47" lcd

Whenever I am in firefox and have pictures open in the browser and move the mouse to the other 19" monitor it crashes, not everytime but often enough to be annoying. Sometimes when it crashes the screen goes blank and I wind up at the login screen, other times it just goes blank and stays blank.

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?

Hardware :: Some NVidia 8400s - Triple Monitors Setup?

Jan 21, 2010

I have been trying my little heart out to get triple monitors setup but I just cant seem to do it. So I have decided that I will quit out on my current video cards and pick up a few new ones and see where this takes me. The cost effective ones seemed to be some 8400s, one would be a PCI-express and one would be on the normal PCI but both are the same GPU. So with this setup would X be able to run all 3 screens with composting so I can run compiz and stuff. And have it one extended x session not 3 separate ones? Specifically I was looking at [URL].

I currently have my monitors set up as an extended desktop using Nividia's Xinerama function. Everything works sweet, except it's acting slow and lags out. It all works out fine when Xinerama is disabled. At the moment, I'm using CentOS with Gnome, but I've tried other distributions with the same outcome. If I can't a fix I'm going back to windblows.

General :: Adding Fedora 13 To A Multi-boot Setup?

Jul 17, 2010

I am currently booting 4 flavors of Linux - Ubuntu 10.04, Xubuntu 10.04, Linux Mint 9 KDE RC and Linux Mint 9 Gnome. There is so little difference between Ubuntu Gnome with the right packages installed and Linux Mint 9 it is redundant and I would like to replace it with Fedora 13 and try that out for a while. I understand that Fedora still uses a legacy Grub while the others are all using Grub2. I also understand that the two bootloaders do not get along. Is there a way to do that? How? If I have Fedora install its legacy Grub to the Fedora partition will Grub2 see Fedora and update itself properly? I'm open to starting clean if that would simplify things.

Ubuntu :: Multi Monitor Setup With 2 Graphics Cards

May 18, 2011

I have just bought 2 monitors to be used as a x3 multi setup and 2 graphics cards the same make and model (ATI Sapphire Radeon HD5450). This all works in Windows 7 but I have just booted into Ubuntu and removed the old nVidia drivers and got the supported driver. The problem is only 2 monitors are detected as it would seem that it's only picking up 1 card.

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:

Red Hat / Fedora :: Format For Server & RAID Setup For Multi Platform Read/write/access?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm looking to set up a server with attached mass storage device and tape autoloader to run linux. It's set up under Windows at the moment. Goal is to have users, connecting from individual workstations and laptops, backup their data to the linux server. On their personal machine, some users run linux, some MacOS, some Windows. I plan to set up the 5 500 GB drives as RAID5. I understand that if setting up as software raid the format is "physical volume for RAID". Under this setup, will Windows users be able to read/write and function as expected? I can't assume only linux user access.
