Debian Multimedia :: Getting Two Monitors To Work With 1 Nvidia Card?

Sep 4, 2010

I'd be grateful for any suggestions to get a second TV/Monitor to work in addition to the desktop monitor for a PC which runs Lenny. The first monitor is a small TFTLCD 15". Works perfectly with a GEForce FX 5200 nvidia graphic card and uses the 173.14.09 driver. Having obtained an SVGA cable, I connected the card to a rather larger 32" LCD Panasonic TX-L32S10B TV to enable some armchair viewing of internet etc for my parents. The Panasonic TV or monitor shows all the boot messages but the graphical server fails to start. I know that both screens work, either alternatively or simultaneously, having tested with a Puppy live CD.
However, running

nvidia-xconfig --twinview results in an incorrect screen resolution for the 15" TFT Monitor; Gnome Screen Resolution Preferences gives a rather surprising fixed setting of 2048x786/50Hz when the maximum should be 1024x768. The resulting xorg.conf file is:

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildd@ninsei) Fri Sep 5 22:23:08 UTC 2008
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0

Debian Multimedia :: 2 Graphic Cards For 3 Monitors - Second Card Not Available

Apr 30, 2015

I inserted another graphics card to my computer to use 3 monitors. The card appears in lspci but I can't access it in gnome.

What do I have to do to set this up.

Here is the output of my xorg.log: [URL].....

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Nvidia Card To Work On Dell With Integrated Graphics?

May 25, 2010

I have a PCI graphics card, Nvidia Geforce FX 5500, but can't get it to work. I have 10.04 installed on a Dell Dimension 3000, P4, 1Gb RAM, integrated graphics. I installed 10.04 without the card in the machine, then shut down and plugged the card in and booted it up again (BIOS setting is 'onboard' for integrated graphics, 8Mb; only other option is 'auto'). Checking the hardware drivers I can see the recommended Nvidia drivers (v173, not yet activated) and lspci gives me the integrated as well as the Nvidia listing:

01:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Nvidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 8286G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

So far so good, but that's where it ends. Changing the BIOS setting to 'auto' turns the screen off on reboot, both for the monitor connected to the VGA port of the Nvidia card and for the monitor connected to the VGA port of the motherboard. I have to shutdown, take the card out and set the BIOS back to 'onboard' to be able to boot again (and shutdown, plug the card back in and boot up again to get back to where I was).

Activating the recommended hardware driver and rebooting (still with BIOS set to onboard) gives a blank screen (screen is still on and there may have been a flash of the purple screen with the ubuntu logo); nothing else happens no matter how long I wait. Rebooting doesn't help, it turns off the screen; same result for booting in recovery mode. I can get to the GRUB bootloader and when I replace 'quiet splash' with 'nomodeset' I manage to boot again with the monitor connected to the VGA port of the motherboard, but am not anywhere closer to getting my monitor working on the Nvidea card.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 And Nvidia With Dual Monitors?

Apr 11, 2011

I just built a system with an Nvidia GT240 and Ubuntu 10.10. I have two monitors and am trying to get them set up. I currently have them working fine in twin view but I'd like to have set up as separate X screens. However, whenever I do that X crashes. I've got the latest drivers set up from the x-sane PPA so I'm not sure what more I can do. My driver version is 270.29.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA Multiple Monitors With 16:10 Laptop Display And 16:9 HD TV

Dec 3, 2010

I'm using a NVIDIA 9600M GT on my laptop running Ubuntu 10.10. The laptop has a 16:10 display, I also connected my 16:9 LCD TV via HDMI. I would like to use them as clones. The problem is, as my TV has a different aspect ratio than my laptop display, the image does not fully fit on the TV. For example, when using a resolution of 1280x800 (16:10), one tenth of the width of that image is missing on my TV, as it has an aspect ratio of 16:9.

In Windows, the NVIDIA software stretches the image so that it appears a little distorted on my TV, but at least I see everything. Is it possible to do that in Ubuntu?

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Nvidia-settings Multiple Monitors

Aug 30, 2015

I've always used Debian with a single monitor and no need of proprietary drivers, because I usually don't do graphics or multimedia. Now I'm asked to set-up a machine with 3 nvidia video cards (770) and 4 monitors and everything went south. I started with just 2 monitors connected to 2 different video cards, not wanting to push my luck.

I installed a fresh Jessie and followed the instruction to install the nvidia drivers and tools from the Wiki. Everything went smooth. After reboot I executed (as root) nvidia-settings and I configured the two monitors to be one to the right to the other, with BaseMosaic option (at this point just one monitor was active) I saved the configuration to /etc/X11/xorg.conf , I even executed nvidia-xconfig as suggested, I rebooted and nothing happened, only one monitor was working, while the other -- looking again in the nvidia settings -- was still disabled.

I then tried with xinerama option and things are even worse, since now both monitors are black. I can login in one textual shell, but then I don't know what to do, since in my 10+ years of linux ... I never had to mess with X server. Is there a way to at least recover a working X without reinstalling everything?

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia Module Unable To Load / Get It To Work?

Feb 19, 2011

I am running squeeze on a PC 1386 and installed nvidia by using the packages in unstable. I was able to install nvidia and there was no error until the time I started X. The error is unable to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0).

I looked up the log for Xorg and it says Unloadable Module "nvidia".

I spent the entire 24 hours to fix it because this is my office computer and I practically done all the stuff found in the forums. I already did nvidia-xconfig to no avail. I even edited xorg.conf manually and still it was not up.

I have some suspects however which are:

1. Different versions between kernel and nvidia (but since I did it the debian way then I should not have any problems).

2. Nvidia-glx is unusable in Squeeze, so does it mean I go for the unstable distro?

3. Or I miss something crucial on how I installed it?

By the way, I installed Nvidia because I am using a SAMSUNG 21' LED monitor.

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:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Video Card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT Now Beginning To Fail - Which Way Is Best, ATI Or Nvidia?

May 3, 2010

I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).

I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?

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 :: Can't Get 3-monitors To Work?

Jul 22, 2011

I'm not new to this distro or the forum I only decided to register today seeing as I actually do have a problem and need help because I can't work it out myself. I'm currently trying to get my 3-monitor set-up to work with Natty but I just can't get it to work. I can get 2 of my monitors to work fine in twin-view, and I can move windows between them, but I want to be able to move windows between all three of them. Now, I've tried many different configurations, I've tried making them all Seperate X's, but that didn't work as only two of them turned on and it was like Xorg crashed because Ubuntu would login, but nothing would come up after that it was just like the default Ubuntu wallpaper with no launcher, or desktop or even management. I tried ctrl+alt+f2 to try bring up terminal but that never worked either. i then tried using 2 monitors in twin-view and 1 as a seperate X, but that didn't work either as the same problem happened when I made them seperate X's.

Ubuntu :: Ubuntu Nvidia Driver And Dual Monitors And Forum Don't Work

Jan 17, 2009

I've had so many problems with Ubuntu. it runs fine version 8.10 64 bit, but I can't install nividia drivers to run both my monitors. and of course steam games don't work... So I thought I'd join the Ubuntu forums to ask questions on has to fix it... NOT EASY. I tried to join there forum, but I could not even find a page to make an account? dose anyone know how? They expected me to all ready have one... and after an hour looking at the Ubuntu web site I could not find anywhere to make an account and join there forum. So here I am, hoping someone here can help.I just want to install the Nvidia driver for both monitors work and I might be able to install a 3rd party softare to let me play steam games. but Ubuntu keeps asking for some codes... I'm not sure what they are and when I try and update Ubuntu, if askes me for a password. I never set any passwords as I'm still learning the OS, so I tried "Root" and "Guest" both in lower and upercase, and both don't work. What is the bloody password, I never set one, so why is it doing this to me? I can't update Ubuntu. And it keeps asking me for some bloody code to install the Nvidia drive I downloaded? why? what is this code and where do I get it? And then other searches I've done tell me to get a "command line" and enter a command that deletes and/or fixes the problem... problem is that I have no idea how to find this command line in Ubuntu and know one what's to tell me, like it's a bit secerate, and I can't even join there forum to ask.

I'm a windows expert and work in IT with windows, but I thought it's time I learn more about other OS's, but Ubuntu is makeing it very hard as I can't even join there forum or install a Nvidia driver to run both my monitors, I'm just about to give up on Ubuntu as the surport form I can not access and there is no info on there web site on how to install and run dual monitors, and I can't sign up for there forums anywhere.

Debian Hardware :: How To Make Two Monitors To Work At Same Time

Jul 13, 2014

Recently I've bought this motherboard : [URL] ...

And this graphic card : [URL] ....

Now I have attached two monitors on the computer,the first one (the monitor that is working) is attached to the DVI port of the nvidia graphic card,the second one is attached on the VGA port of the embedded graphic card of the motherboard.

Since I would like to play a little with blender,I need to use two monitors at the same time because in this way I can follow more video tutorials at the same time.

I'm using this version of debian :

Linux ziomario-Z87-HD3 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and this is the informations concerning the graphics card installed on the computer :

root@ziomario-Z87-HD3:/home/ziomario# lspci -nn | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0412] (rev 06) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:11c0] (rev a1)

Fedora Hardware :: Does Noveau Work With A Nvidia NVA8 Card

Jan 16, 2010

Does the Noveau video driver support an Nvidia NVA8 video card? If so, does it require a special xorg.conf to make it work?

On my FC11 64 bit system, I successfully use a card that is reported in /var/log/gdm as
(--) NOUVEAU(0): Chipset: "NVIDIA NV4B"

but I would prefer to use a "MSI N210 MD512H" card that is reported as
(--) NOUVEAU(0): Chipset: "NVIDIA NVA8"

However, on boot up, he NVA8 card produces a blank screen when the login screen should appear. (The graphical boot screen is visible up to that point). The Xorg.0.log doesn't have anything that I would interpret as a "fatal" error. CTRL-ALT-F2 gives me a usable console. If I do "startx" in the console, I get the message that the Xserver is already running.

Debian Multimedia :: Intel HD 4600 And Two Monitors (DP And DVI)

Apr 17, 2016

I have the following situation:

- Intel HD 4600 and 2 Full-HD monitors (Dell IPS, same model)
- left DisplayPort, right DVI
- Debian stretch with Linux 4.4.0-1-amd64
- XServer X11R7.7 and Cinnamon 2.8.7

… and the following problem:

When I restart the system or login after Standby, usually (not always, but often) some strange green and red pixels appear on the monitor which is connected via DVI. I can remove them by changing the display settings and restoring the extended mode again. However, most of the time the XServer crashes by trying to enable or restore the dual monitor mode (although I’m still able to start a new instance of X from another tty). The XServer also crashes every time I try to enable the extended mode from another situation.

I’ve already tried the following:
- connecting both monitors via DP (no pixes, but also crashes)
- swapping the monitors and using different cables, assuming a hardware problem first (no change)
- VGA instead DVI (works, but inelegant).
- blacklisting i915 or using the xforcevesa boot option (neither of them works, i915 starts though)
- using the nomodeset boot option (detects only one monitor and produces a fallback in software rendering mode)

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy - Xorg 3 Monitors And Y-splitter

I attempted to write my own xorg.conf file, but that resulted in the machine booting to single user mode and the xorg startx error log said it could not find any devices.

When I used the xorg.conf.new generated by the "xorg -configure" command, I was able to get it to display as 3 independent screens, but there was overlap on the screens. I.E. if you moved the mouse to the right side of one monitor, it would show on the left side of another screen at the same time.
