Ubuntu :: Make The Login Screen Use Only One Of Dual Monitors?

Jun 19, 2011

My login screen currently mirrors the image across both of my monitors, which are different sizes, causing one of the two images to be ugly and stretched. After logging in the monitors are configured correctly. Is there a way to either 1) disable one of the monitors during login, or 2) use both monitors without mirroring the image?

Fedora Installation :: Resize The Screen To Fill More Of The Monitor?

Apr 10, 2009

I'm going to do a permanent install of fedora 10 soon, within the next couple of days.

1. When installing it asks if I need to log in as NIC, something about networks. What would that be about?

2. Is there any way to resize the screen to fill more of the monitor? Right now it leaves about an inch of blackness on the let side which is more than other os's that I've seen.

Debian Configuration :: Terminal Don't Fill Entire Screen?

Sep 8, 2011

I started my Debian 6 machine today and the terminal (Alt+Ctrl+F1) is only using the top left area of the screen. The resolution is correct but the whole screen just isn't filled with text. When I log in and run startx the GUI is in a very small resolution.

I've tried everything I can find with GRUB_GFXMODE and GRUB_GFX_PAYLOAD but nothing works.

Ubuntu :: Boot Display Doesn't Fill The Monitor Screen?

Jul 15, 2010

I have an Nvidia card and I am using ubuntu 10.04. Before installing the ubuntu nvidia restricted drivers, the boot screen with the ubuntu logo would cover the entire display area of the monitor. But now, after installing the Nvidia driver and fixing the display resolution of the boot screen with the Plymouth fix, the boot screen doesn't expand to fit the entirety of the monitor display area. How can I fix this? There is a good 2 inch off from either side of the display while booting.

Ubuntu :: Video Driver - Image Would No Longer Fill The Entire Screen

Feb 26, 2010

i just installed an ati radeon hd 4350 video card. after doing so i installed the restricted drivers and found that the image would no longer fill the entire screen no matter what i did. i then disabled the drivers and rebooted. now when i log into gnome all i can see is a white desktop with no icons or even programs when they are loaded (i can tell that some load because i can see when the cursor changes for a text box and the like). would re-enabling the drivers help with this? if so i need a command to do so as i have had to boot into xterm to write this.

Software :: Debian 6 Squeeze Does Not Completely Fill The Monitor Screen On Left

Mar 18, 2011

Have any of you used Debian 6 Squeeze yet? Have you encountered a problem of the OS not entirely filling in the left side of the video monitor leaving approximately (19 inch monitor) a half inch vertically black non-filled part?

This happens in several Debian 6 Squeeze itterations: Net-intall, commercial intalls, etc.

It could be a hardware problem but it happens on other machines as well, so I do not lean that way. There are other machinations of video pasting during bootup such as the left hand of the screen being on the right and vice-versa, scrunched up lines of garbage taking hold of certain sections of the screen.

OpenSUSE :: Dual Monitor - Nvidia Driver With X Screen - Shows A Black Screen

Feb 5, 2011

I have openSUSE 11.3 with an nvidia card connected with two monitors. In the past I used xinerama which was ok, but now I need to have two separate desktops, one on each screen. I set the nvidia driver with x screen, and now one screen works perfect and the other only shows a black screen. When I move the mouse over the black screen, the mouse pointer turns into an X, but moves correctly, which seems to me that the problem is that I need to set the second desktop to that screen. I looked on forums on how to do so, and no luck.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Dual Screen "SaX2 Doesn't Recognize Dell Screen" On 11.1

Apr 10, 2010

I have a Radeon Mobility M300 video card on an IBM T43 labtop. I have this labtop on a docking station connected to a Dell screen. SaX2 doesn't recognize my Dell screen, and so from the labtop commands I am unable to have the main screen on the Dell monitor and a secondary one on the labtop screen. I would like to have (if possible) my primary desktop on the Dell Monitor and the secondary one on the labtop screen.

General :: Gnome - Configure The Definition Of "full Screen" To Make Large VNC Windows Behave Nicely On A Dual Screen Setup?

Dec 15, 2010

In my corporate environment, I'm required to run a Windows machine that acquires a VNC session on a machine in the server farm. My windows machine is dual head with different resolution monitors ( 1600x1080 on left and 1920x1200 on right). If I create a VNC session that spans the monitors, then maximizing a window in the VNC session causes it to stretch across both my monitors.

Instead, I want a "maximize" event to behave like it does on my windows machine -- I only want to maximize to the display that the window is on.

How can I define what, what I'll call, "maximize regions"? Regions in the VNC graphical plane where when I click "maximize", the window only expands to the region it currently ( and mostly) resides in.

Can I do this in gnome, X, xrandr, or some other magical interface?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Full Screen Flash With Two Monitors?

Jan 22, 2011

I have two 1680x1050 monitors running from the same graphics card, using xinerama. The left hand one is rotated portrait, while the right hand one remains landscape.

Some flash videos will full screen fine (4od,iplayer,.....) but some will not; in the attached screenshot you can see that there is a small section of the screen displaying the video while the video controls are correctly at the bottom of the screen. The grey block on the right flashes rapidly light and dark.

Another issue I have is that flash will not stay full screen if I move focus to something on the other screen, is there a workaround for this?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Setting Physical Screen Controls On 2 Monitors

Jun 20, 2011

I use 2 screens. The one that is giving me problems is 5:4 1280*1024, 60Hz monitor. These settings have been automatically detected and do match the manual's screen settings. The mouse disappears off the top of the screen and yet when a window is expanded to full screen it stops at the physical edge of the screen. The mouse stops at the bottom and left side of the screen (the other screen is on its right)

Messages that a new email has arrived are mostly hidden above the edge of the screen. I have tried the physical screen controls but they do not allow me to change the size of the screen, as I am running the monitor in digital mode. I am using the nouveau drivers. What can I do to bring the boundary down to the physical edge of the top of the flat screen?

General :: Dual Screen Display Setup In Fedora 12?

Jul 12, 2010

I am Currently attempting to set up a Dual Screen setup at my work but seem to be having some strange results. For some reason the O/S is only recognising one of the monitors, it knows exactly what the Make and model of the monitor is but doesnt appear to know that there is another monitor plugged in. It constantly says that there is 2 screens plugged in but lists the second screen as "CRT-0" even if no DVI cable is plugged into the second screen. This has really troubled me and has really got me thinking. I have set-up other Dual-screen setups with exactly the same hardware previously and it has worked fine? I am using a Lenovo A58 Tower with an Nvidia Quadro FX-380 Graphics card that I know is capable of dual Dual-link DVI output! With 2 x LG W3000-H Monitors running Fedora 12.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Monitors - Can't Stop Mirror Screen Effect

Aug 14, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 since it came out using two monitors, on the extended desktop option (the way I want it to be) with no problems. Today I unplugged the HDMI cable from my laptop and used it for my ps3 and now when I put the HDMI back in it will only run in the mirror desktop option. This is not acceptable to me as my 2nd monitor is a 50inch tv with a much higher resolution than my laptop.

When I uncheck the "Same image in all monitors" box it says to log out and back in. Doing this changes nothing(neither has restarting), it is still a mirrored screen.

When I click the detect monitors button absolutely nothing happens. Before today the detect monitors button did work.

How can I go about fixing this?

Edit: Also I just watched a show on the laptop and theres a lot of screen tearing, this didn't happen before.

Ubuntu :: Two Monitors Detected Only Single Laptop Screen Present?

May 3, 2011

I have a notebook where it appears a fresh install of natty has detected 2 screens as being present, and set them to be mirrored.

However, there is only one screen present.

It's a Hp 5320m, with a Intel HD graphics.

Here's what the unity test says:

~$ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ironlake Mobile GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10.2


Here is what i see in monitors when i uncheck 'mirrored'


If i disable either of these two monitors, then i lose the screen for both- oops.

Ubuntu :: Display Monitors 1080p On Laptops Smaller Screen

May 8, 2011

I was scrolling through some multi-monitor problem topics and I guess everywhere has been having all kinds of issues. Nevertheless, I'm going to try and get mine solved. I have a laptop and I can get my monitor up and running, switch between default and not, and move it above/right/left without an issue. But if I unplug it, or boot up unity without my laptop connected to the monitor, I cannot get any functionality. The screen is distorted (as if unity is trying to display my monitors 1080p on my laptops smaller screen, or maybe even the 3268x1080p format that my dual setup runs with).

Is this a known bug or are there fixes out there that allow unity to self-adjust depending on whether my monitor is attached or not?

Fedora :: Dual Monitor - Window Maximizes To Full Screen?

Feb 11, 2010

I just rebuilt my fedora box and I'm having some problems getting dual monitors to work. First, I can't reposition my secondary monitor to be on the left. It thinks it's on the right. I can use xrandr to fix this, but that is annoying. Is there no way to do this in the display properties? Second, maximizing a window makes it go across all screens. I unchecked this option in the display properties.I also unchecked the one for letting windows be in multiple monitors at once, but this still happens.

General :: Flash Player With 2 Monitors: Always Full-screen On Primary Monitor

Feb 21, 2010

My setup at home uses a laptop, with a larger external monitor in addition to the built-in LCD panel, which is primary. I can see the larger monitor from the rest of the room and use it as my TV, for playing DVDs and various types of web video. However, it isn't ideal for Flash video. For instance, if I watch a video from Hulu or any other Flash-based site, I can expand it to full-screen mode.

However, no matter which monitor the browser window is on, the full-screen mode is always on the laptop LCD panel, which is both too small and not visible from most of the room. Does anyone know of a way to force the Flash video to play full-screen on the monitor I select instead of the primary? My video chipset is NVidia, using kernel 2.6.31 (Ubuntu).
