Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors: Fullscreen Goes On The Wrong Monitor?

Apr 11, 2010

I've got a dual monitor setup. The primary one is 1360*768 and the other is 1024*768. When I fullscreen a video on the web [URL] it fullscreens to the smaller (non-primary) monitor, but cuts some off the right hand side, as if it is fullscreening the right size to display on the bigger monitor, but instead does it on the smaller one. It happens with any web video, if I click the fullscreen button on the player, it moves it fullscreen to the other monitor.

Software :: When Dual Monitors Enabled, Task Bar Moves To Wrong Monitor?

Oct 24, 2010

I am using Mandriva 2010.1 and KDE4. The primary monitor is VGA-0, and sometimes it's desired to play a video on the big monitor which is HDMI-0. I use an xrandr command line which works nicely except that the KDE4 task bar and desktop icons move over to HDMI-0. How can I keep the task bar and desktop icons on VGA-0 when both monitors are enabled?

Code:
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1024x768 --rotate normal --pos 0x0 --output HDMI-0 --mode 1920x1080 --rotate normal --right-of VGA-0 --pos 1024x0

General :: How To Fullscreen Application Across Both Monitors Of Dual Head Display

Feb 3, 2011

I have two Ubuntu 10.4 machines (and Ubuntu continues to hide more and more xorg.conf config such that I no longer know where to find it). One is a laptop running dual headed - DP1 is the internal screen, and VGA1 is an external monitor; both are running at 1600x900. The other machine is a desktop running both VGA1 and HDMI1 (which is actually a display port with a DVI adapter) at 1600x900. So in both instances my desktop is 3200x900. I run a VNC server on the laptop and connect to it (via SSH tunnel) from the desktop - when I press the full screen hot key, I get a 1600x900 view of the remote machine on one monitor, and half of my local desktop on the other monitor - the "full screen" only expands to fill one local monitor.

Normally this is exactly what you want when you full screen a web browser, email client, or other application. I'm sure there's some X magic to make it clear what a full screen actually entails, and the vnc client application is just dutifully accepting what it's told. While I would like to keep the normal full screen behavior for regular applications, but when I'm VNCing to another 3200x900 machine, I'd really like full screen to stretch across both local displays. Resizing the window to be "close" isn't quite good enough since I still have local panels at the top and bottom of one display (though I can set them to autohide), plus the VNC client application window border (since it doesn't appear to respect -notitle).

Is there any good way to have X lie to a single application about the "full screen" size? Can I get it to lie to all applications? xrandr --noprimary appears to have no effect.

Fedora :: F14 Dual Monitor - Firefox Starts On Wrong Monitor

Jan 27, 2011

I just upgrade to F14 from F10 on a dual montor setup. Firefox behaives differently on F14 than on F10.
On F10 it followed the mouse pointer's location and show up on the correct monitor

When maximized at close, it is always displayed on the left monitor. When not maximized at close it will open on the monitor where the mouse pointer is located.

About minimize/maximize Firefoxe before closing and it seems to work in some case, but not for me.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Monitor - Same Image On Both Monitors Stays Checked ?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a problem finding the resolution that will fit my secondary monitor(24). If I check "Same image in all monitors" I can only choose resolutions that laptop can display. I don't want laptop monitor to work when I'm using secondary monitor(I close the lid)...

If I want to uncheck "Same image in all monitors"(just to find the right resolution)...the system tells me to log out and back in again. When I do that, there's the same image on both monitors and the checkbox was automatically checked again...

I have an Asus N71J Series laptop. Video card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 1GB

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 Hardware :: 11.4 Dual Monitors - Left Monitor Not Coming Out Of Powersave?

Sep 7, 2011

I have a really strange X (?) problem. My physical setup is:

Dell Optiplex 990
VisionTek 210 nV DMS59 PCIe video card (with a DVI splitter)
dual Dell P2411H monitors

I'm running OpenSuSE 11.4 (x86_64 fully patched) with the current nvidia drivers and kernel module. I'm running KDE and kdm in case that matters.

If I power off the two monitors, and then power them on again, the right monitor will come back on. The left monitor (which is the primary one... it's the one where the login screen appears when you are first logging in) reports that it is in power save mode. Wiggling the mouse, typing, etc., do not wake it up. The only thing that wakes it up is the detach the DVI cable from the monitor and reattach it (and sometimes it takes a couple tries).

I have used two (identical) video cards and splitters, and the problem occurred with both, so the problem doesn't appear to be with either of them. I also swapped monitors, but after the swap, the problem still occurred on the left monitor, and the old left monitor (which was now right) came on fine, so it doesn't appear to be a monitor problem.

I'm baffled. For now, I just won't turn off the monitors (or at least not the left monitor).

Hardware :: Dual Monitors Nvidia 9500 GT - Turn On The 2nd Monitor After Startup ?

Feb 25, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my computer. I also have Galaxy (Nvidia) 9500 GT PCI-E card installed on it. I can get both monitors (Acer X223w) to work but every time I shut off the computer and turn it back on the second monitor is shut off. I just need to turn it back on using Nvidia X Server Settings. I have tried to save my X configuratin file but I keep getting an error of:" Unable to remove old X config backup file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'. I have a feeling this is because I am not signed in as root. Is this correct? If this is the case is there a way to get to sign in as root not using the command lines? Otherwise they need to remove this button. I can manually create a backup (copy paste into a text file). I think. Getting back to my Xorg.conf file, I think I need to modify it to have two screens. I have also got some information on my video card using the lspci command. I think I need some information from this. I have written below (towards the bottom) what I think the file should be. Now before I do this, does anybody know of an easy way to back up my whole computer? With my luck I am about to screw something up big time. I think I can just get away with the text file that I copied from the Xorg. Worst case scenario I will just manually replace the file.

Information on my computer:
OS: Ubuntu 9.10 32bit
Motherboard: ASUS M3A78
CPU: AMD Phenom 9500 Quad Core
Video Card: Galaxy Geforce 9500 GT 1GB 128 bit DDR2 (Nvidia)
Hard Drive: Hitachi 1 TB Sata Drive 3 Gb/sec 7200 RPM
Ram: 4 GB (I think, its been awhile since I built this thing)
DVD Burner: LG

Here is a copy of my xorg.conf file: (I don't think it matters but I have both monitors turned on right now).

from the lspci | grep VGA:

I think I need the 01:00 information for my Bus ID. The only thing that I am confuse on is that I was expecting to see two of them.

Okay, this is what I think I need to do: I tried to add color to make it easier to find the changes I made but for some reason I cannot. I will add **** on the end (right side) so my additions and questions will be easier to find.

Do I need to add another Device for the video? Doesn't make sense to me since I only have one video card. I was told it should be based on the # of chips on the card. So I guess I should have two of them since I have two outputs.

Software :: Dual Monitors - Make An Application Automatically Open On Second Monitor?

Jul 20, 2011

I am using Fedora 15 with dual monitors. I want to make an application open automatically on the second monitor. In particular I would like to make Firefox open on the second monitor. For now I am just manually moving Firefox to the second monitor, but if I close it down and open it again, it automatically opens on the first monitor. Is there a way to make it automatically open on the second monitor?

I have two Nvidia cards in my machine. I did have one monitor connected to each video card, but I was unable to get a dual monitor set up to work like this, so I plugged both monitors into one card and the dual monitor set up works fine like. Is there a way to make dual monitors work if you have a monitor connected to each video card? When I had a monitor connected to each video card, I could see the second monitor in the Nvidia settings, but it always disabled it. I could enable it, but it would grey out twin view. After I enabled it, I'll restart the X server, the second monitor would auto disable again.

I'm using Gnome, I don't have the above issue in Xfce4 - it works fine with one monitor connected to each card in Xfce4. However, I want to use Gnome. I've searched, but have not been able to find a solution to either of these issues. I read you can fix the application to launch in a second monitor with wmctrl. I've tried to install it with yum, but I get the message: No package wmctrl available.

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors - Swap "monitor 0" And "monitor 1"?

Feb 11, 2011

With a dual-monitor setup, how can I control which monitor gets which id number?

My primary monitor is a 24-incher. Recently I picked up a little 10" flat panel for a project. The dual-monitor setup is mostly working fine, in that I can move windows between the two monitors, change the alignment in Monitor preferences, set resolutions, etc. Unfortunately the little monitor is getting assigned Monitor 0 and the 24" is getting Monitor 1, so the panels are showing up in the wrong place.

I can work around by going into gconf-editor and telling the panels to use Monitor 1, but I'd like a better fix. Changing monitor assignments seems the obvious right way to go, but I could be wrong.

Setup:
- Ubuntu 10.10
- Core i3-550 using on-chip graphics
- Intel DH55HC with VGA/D-sub, DVI, HDMI
- No-name 10" flat panel connected to VGA/D-sub (has VGA only)
- Acer 24" flat panel connected on DVI (has VGA and HDMI ports too)

My SWAG is that the system is simply assigning Monitor 0 to the VGA port. The 10" is VGA/D-sub only, so I can't physically swap them to test this (FWIW I did move the 24" to HDMI and the results were the same).

Ubuntu :: Fullscreen Across Two Monitors?

Jun 27, 2010

How do i fullscreen wow across two monitors in ubuntu? I am running ubuntu 10.04 with two 1024x768 lcd monitors running from a Nvidia 9800gt graphics card running in twinview. I ant to maximixe WoW(World of Warcraft)(running under wine) as fullscreen across both screens. The WoW client recognizes a resolution option of 2048x768, but when i apply it, it squeezes it onto one monitor. how to fullscreen across both?

And i have removed the touching sides of the monitor cases so the screens touch directly so it is feasible to play.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Monitor Config Not Saving (3 Monitors)

May 15, 2011

I have a triple monitor setup, that works fine in Windows (either using Eyefinity, or just extended desktops) I HAVE been able to get all three monitors working as extended desktops in Ubuntu, but when I set it up, I usually get "Not enough allocated memory to enable this monitor".....OR by some weirdness, all three will work. but when I reboot or shut down and then come back, only two monitors are working, and I get a message saying that 'the configuration couldnt be saved, or there was a white line in line 1' or something to that effect.

Either get extended desktop working, or Eyefinity.

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 :: 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"

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.

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

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors Mouse Speed

Dec 4, 2010

I'm currently running Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP laptop with an external monitor attached. I've been having the same issue since 9.04 and just now figured I should ask about it.When I have dual monitors set up (extended desktop) the mouse speed in the X direction seems to double. ie. assume the mouse usually moves 1 pixel at a time, it now moves 2. It seems to be functioning as usual in the Y direction, which makes the motion really weird and hard to use. I'm using a Wacom tablet for the mouse, but the same happens with my laptops touch pad. Anyone else experience this/know how to fix it?
