Ubuntu :: ATI Card + Dell Laptop + Dual Monitors Of Different Sizes Has Problem With Cursor

Sep 29, 2010

I have a Dell Studio 1558 laptop with a 1366x768 resolution screen. I have an LG flatron monitor with a 1600x900 resolution screen. The screen is connected to the laptop via a vga cable.I am using the fglrx driver and have tried to configure the dual monitors through the ati catalyst user interface, aswell as through the gnome preferences>monitors user interface.

The problem is that I can move the mouse cursor over the top of the laptop screen. I think there is possibly some problem with a virtual desktop size of 900px high. Even in the gnome and ati monitor configuration UI's it shows a highlighted empty space above the placement of the laptop screen. This is very annoying as files on the desktop go north of the laptop screen when sorted by name, and the mouse just randomly disappears off the top of the screen sometimes.

Here is my xorg.conf, would really appreciate it if anyone can help me out here.

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors - Cursor Gets Stuck Between X Screens

Aug 5, 2010

I have dual monitors that I have set up with two separate X screens with the nVidia control panel. For some reason at times when I move my mouse between the two screens, the cursor will start flickering rapidly between the adjacent edges of the screens and the system will become completely unresponsive, forcing me to do a hard reboot (the keyboard doesn't have a SysRq key).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Monitors Laptop Goes White

May 3, 2010

Just installed a clean version of 10.04 onto my Sony VAIO with an ATI Radeon Mobility x700 video card.Whilst using 9.10 KK I was getting low resolution but the dual monitors worked totally fine.Which I use to connect to my TV via a RGB/PC Cord.Since upgrading to 10.04 the resolution is awesome BUT when I merge both monitors the laptop goes mental and shows a white/whitish screen.If I use have both monitors side by side its OK but then I cant run xbmc to show movies. I'm stuck with making the TV my main monitor, which is a pain.Why is the laptop going white after merging screens? Does anybody have any ideas?

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 :: Graphics Card Recommendation For Dual Monitors

Jan 3, 2011

I'm building a new Ubuntu system for use as a desktop machine and personal server (http, smb, smtp). It'll be based on an Intel i7 950 and a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 ATX Motherboard.

I'm looking for recommendations for a graphics card that will support dual monitors and runs well under Ubuntu. Would like some decent 3D support.

General :: Cheap Video Card For Dual Monitors?

Feb 25, 2010

I am looking to build a new desktop. What is the lowest end video card that will fits the following:

Supports 2 monitors at 1920x1200 or 1600x1200
Works with Linux.

3d performance isn't much of an issue, since I don't play computer games. I use the computer mostly for programming, which is why I like having the large resolution, so I don't have to scroll around so much.

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.

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?

OpenSUSE :: Multiple Monitors With Different Sizes And Orientations?

Mar 29, 2010

I would like to create the following setup:

3 monitors: 1 2 3
monitor 1 and 3: 4:3 monitors, running 1600x1200, rotated 90 degrees
monitor 2: 16:9 monitor, running 1920x1080

Can this be done in Linux? If so: how? If not: what's preventing it from being possible?

General :: Get Dual Screens Working On A Dell E6410 Laptop With U10.04 64 Bit?

Jul 12, 2010

I've installed the drivers from nVidia. When I go into the NVIDIA X Server Settings application, in the X Server Display Configuration setcion, and click the "Configure" button, "TwinView" is disabled. Also, clicking "Detect Displays" doesn't pick up my monitor (which is connected through a port replicator - keyboard and mouse in that port replicator work fine).

Has anyone else seen this? Is this just a limitation of the current nvidia linux drivers?

OpenSUSE Install :: Setup On Dual Boot With MS-Vista On A Dell Studio 1537 Laptop?

Dec 20, 2009

This is not strictly a Linux question, although I am interested in any Linux cautions as to what to avoid that could impact my Linux on the computer in question. I have Linux (openSUSE-11.1) setup on dual boot with MS-Vista on a Dell Studio 1537 laptop. My wife is "fed up" with Vista, and has asked that I replace Vista with WinXP on this Laptop. I would like to do this over the Christmas holiday break. The laptop's 1 year support warrantee has expired. can someone explain to me the function of the two Dell /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 partitions ?

This laptop was purchased with MS Vista installed, with 3 primary partitions (small /dev/sda1 (called "Dell Utility" ),10GB /dev/sda2 (unknown - appears to be some sort of Dell backup/recovery partition ? ), /dev/sda3 (MS Vista which had the remainder of the 250GB drive, although I have subsequently reduced this to 69GB ).

Again, I note /dev/sda3 is the 69GB MS Vista partition (I reduced it to 69GB when I installed Linux (openSUSE-11.1)). I also believe it may be in /dev/sda3 where I should plan on installing winXP. Currently I have openSUSE-11.1 Linux in /dev/sda4 (divided into extended partitions, with /dev/sda5 (swap), /dev/sda6 (root), and /dev/sda7 (/home) for Linux and it works well. I plan to keep openSUSE-11.1 Linux when Vista is replaced by WinXP Can I remove and merge /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, and /dev/sda3 and replace them with one partition for WinXP ?

Or am I better OFF keeping /sdev/sda1 (Dell Utility) ? and am I better off to keep /dev/sda2 (some sort of Vista ?? recovery) ? and only put winXP on /dev/sda3 ? Aside from the MBR with Grub being destroyed (when I replace Vista with winXP) is there anything else I need to be careful of wrt keeping my openSUSE-11.1 Linux install on this laptop ?

I've also sent a slightly different version of this post as a question to the Dell Support mailing list. p.s. for information, here is some output from Linux commands showing the contents:

Ubuntu Installation :: Partition Sizes For Dual Boot System

May 29, 2010

I plan on installing Ubuntu 10.04 and it will be my first Ubuntu install. I plan on dual booting with windows 7 and I would like advice on partition sizes. I have a 250 GiB drive and my planned partitions are as follows.

Sda1 (PQSERVICE) 12GiB This was pre-installed should I delete it
Sda 2 (System Reserved) 100MiB This was also pre-installed should I delete it
I know one of the above is the windows recovery partition but I don't know which one
Sda 3 (Gateway) 25 GiB This will contain windows will 25 GiB be enough
Extended partition
Logical 1 10 GiB / the main Ubuntu partition 10 GiB should be enough
Logical 2 1 GiB /home this will just hold settings so 1 GiB will be enough right?
Both above partitions are ext3
Logical 3 3 GiB swap partition I have 1 gig ram upgradeable to two
Logical 4 180 Gib shared NTFS partition

I am new to Ubuntu and would like to know if you think this is proper. I have already defragmented the hard drive and will make the partitions in Gparted on Ubuntu live test from usb drive.

Ubuntu :: Killed Xserver / Gnome - Cursor Stays At The Left When 2 Monitors Connected

Mar 5, 2011

i somehow screwed my xserver (I guess it is the xserver). I got the following problem:

1) When i have 2 monitors connected, the cursor stays at the left one even though i select text on the right one.

2)(i plugged the left one out)As soon as i open a window and click on something in the window the window cannot be moved anymore, and the desktop cannot be selected anymore either (though u still can do something inside the window), as soon as you close the window (if you are lucky and there is a "close" button) the desktop can be used again.

This all started when i played a flash game which froze like everything but the game, and i had to restart the computer. I guess it somehow screwed the .conf file or the xserver. I already tried the xorg.conf.backup but it didn't help!

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)

Ubuntu :: Dell Optiplex 960 With NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450 - Blank Screen With No Cursor??

Oct 5, 2010

I have just bought a Dell Optiplex 960 with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450. Everything works out of the box with the 10.04.1 Live CD. It suggests to install and activate NVIDIA proprietary drivers, but you need to restart the machine afterwards.The problem is that, after that, all what you get is a blank screen, with not even a cursor.The same happens when you install Lucid: blank screen with no cursor.

Ctrl+F1 does not show anything, but Ctrl+Alt+Prnt Scrn+REISUB works and the PC is reset.In the var directory the logs show that the NVIDIA module is not loaded.

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 :: Ati Dual Monitors On 10.04 Gnome?

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:

Identifier "NVidia"
#Driver "nvidia"

Ubuntu :: Trying To Set Up Dual Monitors With Nvidia

Jan 24, 2011

I'm trying to set up my monitor and tv for dual display but I'm having some problems. I want them to display the same thing so I've enabled twinview and I figured the second display position should be set as clone but when I save xorg and restart the x server the position reverts to absolute. Anyway, the monitor is set as the primary display and it's the one I'm having problems with. The tv is fine but the monitor's display is stretched off the screen so I can't see the far right or bottom of the screen. I'm very new to linux and I'm just finding my feet so if there's any other info needed you'll probably have to be very specific.

I only recently started using Ubuntu after many years of Windows XP and I just realized that both my laptop's integrated monitor and my external monitor are 'on', displaying the same image.

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors Cloned To A Different Resolution?

Aug 18, 2010

I've been searching around and from what I've found this is supposed to just work but I am having some display issues when cloning my laptop to an external monitor. I think the problem is that my laptop has a better resolution than the monitor. Here is my setup:

laptop with a display of 1900x1200
external monitor with a display of 1680x1050

ideally I want to clone the laptops output onto the external monitor so they can both operate in their native resolution. When I setup twinview and set it to clone the laptop displays correctly, however, the external monitor is missing a large chunk on the bottom and right hand side

here's my xorg.conf

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Fri Apr 9 10:35:18 UTC 2010
