Debian Multimedia :: How To Get Xrandr / Arandr To Detect Dual Monitor

Jan 29, 2016

I just switched from Ubuntu to Debian and I am having trouble doing something that I found easy to do with Ubuntu. I have a Radeon R9 graphics card from MSI with dual DVI ports and I'm trying to get xrandr/arandr to detect my dual monitors but it only detects one. I've installed all the drivers and even installed the "amdgpu" driver from the Ubuntu repository but still not detecting. What drivers am I missing?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Xrandr Doesn't Detect External Monitor Native Resolution

Apr 25, 2011

When I'm connecting second monitor to the laptop, Display Settings applet (and xrandr -q) does not detect full list of supported resolutions. I need to restart my system or perform Log off while monitor is connected to make full list available.openSUSE 11.4 32 bit, Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450, proprietary ATI driver 11.3 8.831.2-110308a-115935C-ATI.External monitor is FullHD SyncMaster B2330 (1920x1080)I wonder is there any other workaround to access full resolution that does not require restarting of the system?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XRandR Doesn't Detect DVI Output To TV?

Mar 25, 2010

I'm trying to hook up my TV to my MacBook1,1 laptop running the Lucid Lynx Beta. The TV is connected to the laptop via a mini-DVI to DVI-I adaptor, which is connected to a DVI-I to video adaptor, and this is connected to the TV via a component cable.

Under OS X, after plugging in the mini-DVI cable, the TV automatically becomes a secondary display for the laptop (extending the current screen), so from a hardware perspective everything seems ok. Under Ubuntu, plugging in the mini-DVI cable elicits no response from XRandR whatsoever (xrandr -q reports DVI1 disconnected both before and after). URandR and the regular "Detect Displays" button in the "Monitors" preference app do nothing. The laptop has an Intel GMA 950 chipset, and the Intel driver is running successfully (Compiz works fine). I have a clean xorg.conf (generated by X -configure), except for the addition of "Virtual 2048 2048" in one of the SubSections of the Screen section. I'd be happy to post the full xorg.conf if it would be useful.

So far I have tried xorg.conf tweaks, and I have followed instructions to manually tell xrandr to output to DVI1 as described in the comment by Marko Mikulicic here.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can Xrandr Supports Dual Screens

Dec 30, 2010

how Xrandr supports Dual screens. I am attempting to setup Dual Screens on a Ubuntu 10.10 System with an ATI twin head card (DVI + HDMI) Non-mirrored, separate desktops However on connecting a device to the HDMI output - the DVI screen output appears to loose all panels, icons. Only the mouse pointer & desktop background remains.

I believe the output is defaulting from screen 0 to screen 1. I found a solution by creating two devices in xorg.conf and assigning one for each separate screen. BUT this created a new problem of loosing my mouse pointer. how I can get my mouse pointer working or the correct way to setup dual screens.

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 :: Debian + XFCE Dual Monitor Behavior?

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?

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.

Oct 12, 2015

Pressing left, middle and right button of mouse at bottom and right edges or bottom left, top right and bottom right corners of the screen does not work with fittstool-2.0 on openbox in debian jessie with dual monitor.

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:
Code: Select allfittstool
and ~/.config/fittstool/fittstoolrc was generated.

I modified it as

Debian Multimedia :: XOrg Auto-detect Failing To Detect Max Screen Resolution

May 29, 2011

I've installed Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64 on my laptop (Alienware M17X R3, Intel i7 Sandybridge, ATI Technologies Inc Broadway [ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6800 Series])The screen is 17", with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. After a default install of the operating system, the maximum resolution I can select is 1280 x 1024.My research so far has suggested that I need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and provide xorg with the necessary resolution.

Again, by default, the xorg.conf file is not created. This leads me to believe that xorg is scanning my hardware at startup and providing me with whatever it thinks is appropriate. I tried following these instructions to generate an xorg.conf file. This process created an xorg.conf file under /root/.

When I copy this xorg.conf file to /etc/X11, I get a blank (i.e. black) screen. Deleting this file restores the default resolution 1280 x 1024.This system is dual booting with Windows 7. Under windows I am able to get a 1920 x 1080 resolution, so I know my hardware is up to it.At this stage I have yet to install the drivers for the Radeon graphics card.What are my options regarding configuring xorg to give me a higher screen resolution?

Debian Multimedia :: Using Xrandr To Toggle Laptop Display

Jun 3, 2015

Background: I am running Debian 8 with the Xfce DE on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

When at home I will connect my laptop to an external display. I did the same while I was running Ubuntu; however, with Ubuntu I could activate my laptop display by simply disconnecting the external monitor. With Debian + Xfce, unplugging the external monitor leaves my laptop screen blank.

In order to activate my laptop display, I have to open Display settings, turn on laptop display -- which still leaves my laptop screen blank -- and then switch resolution: there are two listings for 1366x768 under resolution, and only the second one restores my laptop display. Please note that if I have both displays on at the same time the size of the output on my external monitor will be reduced to about the size of my laptop's display.

I would like the create a Bash script which can automatically switch between my displays. After some Googling it seems like xrandr is the tool I need for the job. However, I have been having trouble getting it to work.

I tried the command Code: Select allxrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --primary --output HDMI1 --off. This however just turns my external display off without turning on my laptop's display. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that LVDS1 has two modes at 1366x768; perhaps only one of them can actually display? I'm not sure, but anyways here's the output of xrandr:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
   1366x768      59.99*+
   1360x768      59.80    59.96 
   1024x768      60.00 
   800x600       60.32    56.25 

[Code] ....

Is there a way I can specify that xrandr should use the second 1366x768 mode?

I just realized that the second mode is, in fact, 1360x768 rather than 1366x768...

The good news is that I fixed my problem. It turns out that my backlight was not turning on, giving the appearance that my laptop screen was not displaying anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fglrx Doesn't Detect Monitor?

Sep 14, 2010

I'm running 10.04 on a Radeon HD 4650 card with fglrx. The driver installation went without a hitch, and the log file contained no errors.

When I try to run

Code:
aticonfig --initial
i get the response
Code:
Found fglrx primary device section
Unable to find any supported Screen sections
Running

[Code]....

My best guess is that I have to write an Xorg.conf file, in which I say what type of monitor I have.

I cannot do that, as I need to shut down the Xserver in order to make it generate my xorg.conf file. When I shut it down I get the black screen.

Debian Hardware :: 8.0 Doesn't Detect Second Monitor

Apr 7, 2016

Debian Jessie does not detect one of my monitors (I have two) when I use the default drivers (nouveau) for my NVIDIA graphics card. It does work when I install the proprietary drivers, but then, after a couple of reboots, I get many problems (when I log in, it does not manage to load the desktop environment). I've tried this a couple of times unsuccessfully.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Monitor Won't Detect Proper Resolution / Solve This?

Dec 27, 2010

This has been happening with the majority of screens I try to plug into, but the proprietary nvidia driver never detects the correct resolutions -__- the open-source driver works perfectly with a little xrandr magic, but I'd like to have some 3D acceleration going on. I'm using the desktop version of Nvidia ION and ubuntu 10.10, with the current nvidia driver (from the repositories). The native resolution is 1440x900 @60 Hz. Any thoughts on this? Again, the nouveau driver is great but I'd like to have VDPAU and the like working. code...

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.

Ubuntu :: One Virtual Desktop Per Monitor / Using XRANDR

Mar 14, 2010

I have two monitors, my laptop screen, and an LCD monitor. I want to configure linux to put one virtual desktop on one, and a second on another. I'm using Compiz as well, so I'd like it to show one side of the cube on each monitor. I'm not really sure how to go about setting this up though. My attempts so far have stretched the same desktop across both monitors, or resulted in an unusable monitor that just sits there with the default background. While I was trying to figure this out I came across something called XRandR that lets you connect/disconnect monitors without restarting xserver. I'm not sure how to get this going either, the only tutorials I found were for intel chipsets, and I'm using the proprietary NVidia drivers.

Fedora :: Ati Xrandr Dual Screen Weirdness

Mar 8, 2011

I just found some strange behaviour with xrandr. I've got a dual screen setup (both 1680x1050) on which I want to span my desktop. I'm using the ati (amd) proprietary driver from livna to do this. I edited my xorg.conf to include the 'Virtual' line under screen.

When I add this to the "Screen" section:

The driver breaks and I get a resolution of 1400x900 and still not the option to span my desktop.

When I change that to read Virtual 1680 2100

It all works fine but I have to have my desktops on top of each other.

Hardware :: Limited Resolution Choices In Xrandr With External Monitor On Hotplug?

May 5, 2010

I am running Fedora 12 on a T400 Thinkpad. When connector my external monitor prior to powering on the computer or if I restart it, I get a lot of resolution choices from xrandr. See below.

Code:
$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 303mm x 190mm
1440x900 60.0*+ 50.0
1024x768 60.0

[Code].....

Is there some daemon I need to restart to detect the monitor resolutions correctly, or is there a module I can reload?

There seem to several variables to reproducing the behavior. If I restart without the laptop without the monitor plugged in, log in, and then, plug the monitor in with the monitor powered on prior to plugging, all resolutions are detected properly. However, if I plug the monitor in with it powered off, then power it on, I only get the few options shown in above. Once I get the reduced number of options, it seems to stay that way till I restart regardless of how I unplug the monitor.

I have found a work-around by just forcing the modes with xrandr --newmode and xrandr --addmode, but I would much rather have the modes autodetected.
