Debian Multimedia :: Dual Monitor Setup On Intel Chipset - Netinst Minimal Install

May 14, 2010

I'm trying to get dual monitors working on a fresh install of debian from the netinst install cd. I did not allow the installer to download any packages and then manually installed xorg gnome-core & gdm using apt-get.

The monitors are plugged into the onboard vga and dvi ports of my motherboard. I believe the chipset is intel.

At the moment the displays are cloned.

I don't know much about xorg.

This is my xrandr output:

Debian Multimedia :: Dual Monitor Setup - Two Identical Outputs

Sep 2, 2015

Just installed Debian 8, coming from Ubuntu12, it seems I cannot get my dual monitors to work as it should.

I want two monitors side by side, currently I have two identical outputs. I looked around a bit and register two possible problems.

root@bigcem101-debian:/home/bigcem101# xrandr
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 400, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected primary 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1024x768 0.00*
800x600 0.00
640x480 0.00
720x400 0.00

Hence, problem 1: it is as if there is only one monitor detected. Then I tried to look for Xorg.conf ..... and: problem 2 xorg.conf is not there. This seems to be normal but when I installed my Ubuntu years ago it was still there and one could manually set things. There must be something new I am missing.

Card:
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV670 [Radeon HD 3690/3850]

It seems I have both ati and radeon installed.

root@bigcem101-debian:/home/bigcem101# X -configure
(EE)
Fatal server error:
(EE) Server is already active for display 0

I am clueless.

Debian Installation :: Minimal Netinst Internet Access

Jul 30, 2014

Fresh install without a desktop environment, I only selected "standard software utilities" from the software selection step of the installation process, nothing else is installed thereafter.

I cannot follow these instructions [URL] .... because "auto" and "iface" commands not found.

iptables isn't installed, but I want to install nftables since it's what iproute2 is to net-tools.

And it doesn't even have NetworkManager either and so far I found out ifconfig (net-tools) has been dropped in favor of iproute2, although that is just what Wikipedia says.

[URL] ....

"apt-cache search iproute2" revealed there is only iproute.

I just checked, net-tools is also installed, but ifconfig command not found?

Debian :: Installing Minimal Gnome-shell After Stretch Netinst?

Jan 27, 2016

I've just installed debian testing on my computer (netinst AKA basic shell version). Now, how do I do a minimal gnome install? Minimal means, I don't need libreoffice or any extra bloat. However, I do want nautilus, gnome-settings-daemon and networkmanager (and of course, firefox!).

Also, is audio included or not in gnome-shell?

If I just install the gnome-shell package (with --no-install-recommends package), will it pull in gdm, Xorg, etc. or do I have to install them separately? Also, need to confirm whether my sources.list is properly set or not:

Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.security.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Movies In Dual Monitor Setup

Jul 22, 2010

I recently got a signal conversion box so I could route my netbooks monitor-out port to my TV. The idea being that I could effectively set the TV up as a separate monitor for watching movies on whilst I worked using the netbooks own monitor. It seemed to work initially, the Monitors dialog box could easily detect and setup the TV as if it were just an external monitor however I can't seem to play any kind of video on either screen when this is set up. All I get in Totem, Mplayer, VLC and skype is just a black area within the applications window. The sound works fine so this is clearly just a video problem.

It only seems to occur when I configure the system to use the TV as a separate monitor. If I tell it to display the same thing on both monitors all video output works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Monitor Setup - Separate X Screen Option

Feb 18, 2010

I've played around with a second monitor, but so far I haven't found a satisfying solution. I am using a laptop with a GeForce 9600M GS graphics card. I have managed to set up twinview, but my monitors don't have the same height so I'd rather have something like the "seperate x screen" option. Or how I imagine that option would be like. After some problems with the nvidia configuration tool (I couldn't change the xorg.conf, until I read this: [URL] I now have two separate screens, but the second one is all empty, with black background and X-shaped mouse cursor.

There seems to be no window manager running, I can start programs there with -display :0.1 , but they don't get any frame decoration and, which is worse, no keyboard focus. I'd be fine with a fullscreen konsole there, so I don't really need a window manager, but I do need access from the keyboard. I'd prefer a setup that would allow me to easily (without editing xorg.conf) switch between using both monitors and using only one, because I don't always use the laptop at home.

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitor Setup Does Not Work Whenever Install Drivers

Sep 1, 2011

When ever I install the (recommended) drivers through the "Additional Drivers" interface to run Unity my dual monitor setup does not work. The monitors won't even detect correctly what so ever. Then, when ever I install (more basic?) nVidia drivers through the packet manager, my dual monitors work as planned, but now Unity won't work. What's the deal? Are there any work arounds for this?

Debian Hardware :: Crash With Intel Chipset And Newer Kernels?

Aug 31, 2010

What seems like forever ago now I tried to install Linux on this Intel 82855GME chipset laptop I was given. I started off with Fedora because it's what I'm most familiar with, unfortunately the live disk would crash at GDM so I could never get anywhere with it. Even doing a console based install would crash, but it at least pointed me in the right direction, it seemed the kernel was crashing for some reason (see image)Fedora livedisk crashlivedisk-error.jpg (95.96 KiB) Viewed 695 times

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install 10 On Intel G35 Chipset

Jan 15, 2009

im having problems finalizing the installation of fedora 10 on a new ASUS P5E-VM that uses Intel G35 chipset.

1. i think fedora did not recognize the video driver since all the installation was in text mode and i cannot use "init 5" to load a UI

2. i tried to find some drivers (if any1 can recommend a rpm that i can download i will apprichiate it very much) but could not transfer them to the fedora since i could not mount any USB disk on key in the linux i tried using: mount -t vfat /mnt/usb (after mkdir /mnt/usb)

3. i tried to burn the driver but then could not access the dvd...

4. no internet connection yet... but thats because i cannot access my network drives that are on the USB key as well...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Frozen: Dell Dimension 2400 Intel 82845G/GL/GE Chipset?

Apr 6, 2010

I've seen a bit about the display being frozen on intel integrated displays, but I do not see the answer anywhere. Does anyone know how to fix this problem: Ubuntu 9.10 boots and runs just fine for 10, 20 or even 30 minutes performing variety of tasks. Then, without warning the display is frozen. The mouse can move the pointer just fine, but I cannot interact with the desktop and the machine must be shutdown by holding the power button.

I've observed this while playing a Kpatience game, general surfing of the internet, and view ..... videos. One time it happened when the display powers off after being idle, but this is not consistently the case. I have tried to make the freeze happen, but am unable to do so (so it seems, anyway). What is happening here? Here are the details of my system:

Dell Dimension 2400 Desktop

Debian Multimedia :: Dual Monitor With Plasma 5

Aug 19, 2015

I'm trying to set up a dual monitor system with my Dell E7450 laptop with Debian Stretch and KDE 4.14.2. The graphic card is a Intel HD5500 with xserver-xorg-video-intel version 2:2.99.917-2. The first time I simply connected the HDMI plug, it recognized the monitor and it automagically set up the extended dual monitor. Then I unplugged the HDMI and KDE froze. Now every time I plug in the second monitor the laptop monitor goes black, the desktop goes on the external monitor and the mouse cursor moves only vertically along the leftmost edge of the monitor.

Debian Multimedia :: Triple Monitor Setup On Wheezy

Apr 29, 2015

I have some very strange issues with my tripple monitor setup on debian wheezy. I have acer aspire V3 laptop with i915 Intel (Intel® HD Graphics 4000) as part of i3 and nvidia GT 740M which I never managed to get working with or without optimus to any degree whatsoever. What I want is a reliably working triple monitro setup. I have 2 additional DELL u2412m monitors which I did manage to get to work on few occasions by more or less randomly turning stuff on and off via lxrand and KDE systemsettings (so I do knwo for a fact that tripple monitor setup works). Arandr doesn't work, and executing xrandr from cmd doesn't work. I can relatively easily get the 2 monitors to mirror each other, but to get them to work separately is extremy difficult. It's always the same error but the well known crt. For example:

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 3840x0 --rotate normal
xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --rotate normal --right-of LVDS1
xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed

When it did work I copied arandrs script in hopes it would work, but it doesn't. Obviously, here is the issue that the crtc can not be configured so if somoen could tell me why and how to get the damn thign to use a specific crtc it would be awesome. Also, I noticed that when I hit "identify monitors" in KDE systemtools, it would say VGA HDMI for both VGA and HDMI outputs.

Here is xrandr output from when it worked:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 5760 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0x46) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm

        Subpixel:   horizontal rgb
        Gamma:      1.0:1.0:1.0
        Brightness: 1.0

[Code] ......

Here is now:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0x46) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 On Intel Core I5 With Integrated Graphics + Intel H55 Express Chipset

Aug 18, 2010

! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel� 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...

I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...

Debian Multimedia :: Dual Monitor Jessie Gnome

Mar 9, 2016

In Debian Jessie Gnome with two screens, I would like to execute

xrandr --output HDMI1 --primary --right-of eDP1
xrandr --output eDP1 --rotate left

prior to showing the GNOME user logon screen. Unfortunately, all information I seem to be able to find on this appears to be relevant for pre-systemd Linux only.

The situation is that I have two monitors: One small tilted monitor on the left with 1024 x 768 which should be secondary and one larger landscape monitor on the right with 1920 x 1080 which should be secondary. Everything works persistently AFTER a user has logged on. However, after booting the system or after changing users, the small monitor becomes primary so (a) the user needs to logon using that monitor and (b) as the monitor is physically tilted, one needs to tilt the head to read it wihtout the xrandr commands.

If I can get beyond this issue, there is a second issue: While one can pick the primary and secondary monitor in Gnome, monitor numbers 1 and 2 seem to be fixed. This becomes a problem when using freeRDP to connect to a Windows server with dual monitors. Then, the smaller, secondary monitor is number 1 and thus, it is the Windows logon and primary screen. Is there a way to switch numbers 1 and 2 in Linux, for example somewhere in the grub configuration?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Unable To Use Dual Monitor With Intel Hd Graphics

Nov 26, 2010

I've installed CentOS 5.5 64 bit on a Dell Latitude e6410. This model only contains Intel HD Graphics, not the extra Nvidia card you could also buy in addition. The getinfo output can be found here:[URL] Initially X11 did not work at all (blank screen), but using hints from other posts in this forum I was able to fix this by editing the file xorg.conf using the vesa driver, although I still do not get the native screen resolution of 1200x800 (I alwas get 1152x768).

Now I want to add an external monitor (Samsung Monitor connected via DVI, screen resolution 1680x1050). Unfortunately as soon as I try to configure the dual head mode using the system-config-display tool after restart of the X server there will be the the blank screen again. I tried various drivers with no luck.Has anyone succeeded setting up dual head on an Intel HD Graphics machine? I understand that this hardware is quite new and and would be easier to set up with more recent distros, but I would like to stick to CentOS, but cannot wait for CentOS 6.

Pressing left, middle and right button of mouse at top and left edges and top-left corner on the screen works correctly.

I use openbox on debian jessie. I do not install any desktop environment explicitly.

In the jessie, I installed gcc, make, libglib2.0-0, pkg-config, libcairo2-dev and libxcb1-dev.

I downloaded [URL] .... and confirmed that the sha1sum value of the downloaded file matches sha1sum value given at [URL] ....

I expanded the downloaded file by
Code: Select alltar -xvf fittstool-2.0.tar.gz
into fittstool-2.0 directory.

I executed with an ordinary (non-root) user:
Code: Select allcd fittstool-2.0
make

I executed with root privilege on the fittstool-2.0 directory
Code: Select allmake install

I executed the following with the ordinary user:

and ~/.config/fittstool/fittstoolrc was generated.

I modified it as

Ubuntu :: Setup Updates On Minimal Install Iso?

But I would like for my programs to get updated. When I check the update manager, there are no updates there, the only thing that shows is an available upgrade to 11.04( which I don't want to upgrade to) . I would like to know, How can I set up this minimal install to get updates regular like the Full ubuntu distributions? and have all my programs updated, and also be warned when there are new updates for my machine? as it is on a normal ubuntu install.

Slackware :: Boot Into Dual Monitor Setup ?

Jun 15, 2011

I created a dual monitor setup in Slack 13.37 using the KDE systemsettings -> Monitor Setup function. (Sadly I had to rebuild ~/.kde in the process, but that's a different story.)

I verify that ~/.kde/share/config/krandrrc contains the new monitor setup (both screens active). I have saved a startup session with krandrtray running. However, when I logon, the system always starts with both screens in clone mode. I always have to go into systemsettings or krandrtay and redo the dual monitor configuration.

Is there a better way? Do I have to create a suitable xorg.conf (which I will try when I get home) or is there another way to boot into the dual config automatically?
