Fedora :: Fedora 12 Dual Monitor Background Splits

Dec 12, 2009

I recently upgraded to fedora 12. Before the upgrade I had a desktop background which filled the entire 2 screens. After the upgrade i noticed that the background is displayed on each monitor twice so when displaying the desktop I see the background twice.I tried to change the settings for it like 'center' and 'fill screen' but to no avail. The rest of the dual monitor setup works fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Monitor Different Background?

Dec 30, 2010

So I have to monitors. One is a 23" (1920x1080) and a 15.6" (1366x76 and I want to backgrounds... I'm not sure if it's possible but I'm hoping it is... I just got Ubuntu earlier this week so I don't know much about it yet.

With Windows I used DisplayFusion but it doesn't look like it's compatible to anything other than Windows..

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.

Fedora :: Dual Monitor / Dual Workspace?

Apr 23, 2011

I am attempting to use dual monitors in Fedora 14 using an AMD ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series graphics card (not that I think that has anything to do with anything, but who knows), and want it to where my second monitor is its own virtual workspace so that I can switch between my other workspaces on my original monitor without switching the workspace on the second monitor. This way, I can watch movies or what-not on my TV (2nd monitor) while working on my original monitor.The only thing I found that was even close was setting the 2nd monitor up on it's on x server, which I don't want to do. Also, as it is now, I have my panel on my original monitor, but the windows do not see it when I have it aligned on the right (the windows don't adjust their size to account for the fact that it is there). I know a way I can do a work-around for this, but I would like to know if there is a "correct" way to do this. I know I can tell the movie player to show on all workspaces and have it on the 2nd monitor.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Dual Monitor Setup In Fedora 12

Mar 23, 2011

I need some help getting my dual monitors working in Fedora 12. I've tried some things from other posts and a few things from various websites and wikis (Gentoo), but nothing I've done has worked. To be honest, I can barely remember what I've tried and what I haven't anymore, because I feel like I've gone in circles.The card has one DVI out and I'm using a DVI-splitter to connect the two monitors. This configuration works on my Windows 7 boot. Also, the second monitor is detected, but shows no display.

Fedora :: Dual Monitor F12/Radeon?

Nov 19, 2009

Long time reader, first time poster to the forums. I have installed Fedora 12 onto a desktop here. Fresh install and fully updated as of today. In this system there is a radeon 7000 graphics card that Fedora set up dual display for me. This is working fine but unfortunately im seeing a problem with the top and bottom of one of the displays.

Please see the problem here: [URL]... The mouse will go underneath or above the areas i have pointed to. Any ideas what is wrong? In fedora 9, 10, 11 this was all working fine but i did have to use xrandr manually to get dual display working. Edit: Update:

I dd not mention that i kept my home directory. On futher inspection it seems that the issue is because of a .folder in my home directory that was backed up and restored on the fresh install. To check this i added a new user to the system and logged in with a fresh home directory. Does anyone know which folder or file this setting this is stored? I tried logging out, moving .gconf .gconfd .gnome2 .gnome2_private and the .gtk folders to another location then logged in to no avail.

Fedora Hardware :: Dual Monitor Not Working

Jun 28, 2010

I know there are a lot of dual monitor threads.I've read them, and I even checked at the nvidia forum.I don't see something similar enough to my problem so I'm thinking maybe it's not a driver issue.I'm running F12, both monitors were working and I configured them properly and they were fine.Yesterday I installed the nvidia drivers as per Leigh's tutorial.Once I got that sorted out and rebooted, my secondary monitor was no longer registering.I checked in display settings and it does not recognize the second monitor.I tried going to system->administration->display but after I authenticate nothing happens.

Hardware :: Dual Monitor Setup In Fedora 13

Dec 27, 2010

I am running Fedora 13 on a PC I built myself - MSI motherboard 785-E53. It has onboard DVI which my primary monitor is hooked to. I added an older 17" CRT to the onboard analog output and the main desktop with my icons and panels immediately switched to the CRT. Kernel is 2.6.34.7-66.fc13.i686, lspci -v says VGA compatible controller ATI Technologies Inc RS880 (Radeon HD 4200). How can I get flatscreen on the DVI output to be the primary?

Fedora Hardware :: Dual Monitor/nv/nouveau Does Not Work

Jul 4, 2010

I have just upgraded from Fedora 11 to Fedora 13 and now can't get my two monitors working as a single "screen" (it worked under F11). I have a GeForce video card with two monitor outputs

lspci -v
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G73 [GeForce 7600 GT] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Device 1acc:0846
Flags: 66MHz, medium devsel, IRQ 16

[code]...

I then edit the xorg.conf to change the driver from nouveau to nv and I can start X and the LCD displays the desktop at a resolution of 1680x1050 (good) but the CRT just displays random blocks of colour. At this point I also get a kernel crash - see dmesg output attached, but the system is then OK to use. I have tried editing the xorg.conf to add a second monitor and a virtual screen resolution to match the two monitors (1024x768 + 1680x1050) combined (2704x1050) but still only the LCD monitor works, but with the virtual desktop that can be nudged around with the mouse. I would like to get back to using both monitors with a virtual screen across the two monitors.

Fedora Hardware :: F14 - ATI Dual Monitor Failed After Update?

I was using dual monitor on my Fedora 14. I followed leigh123linux's instruction and I was successful. However I cannot use the dual monitor any more - just see the cloned two monitors...

Fedora :: NVIDIA Bin Driver - Gnome3 - Dual Monitor ?

May 25, 2011

I have recently installed FC15 on my system. Dual monitor support seems to be broken with my setup. I am using the latest NVIDIA binary blob driver (270.41.19). I compiled my own kernel for it, version 2.6.39.

When gnome3 starts it almost manages to boot up, but then it crashes and gives me the option of logging out. I have my system booting into target 'multi-user.target' since I was doing some other stuff and I use `startx' to start gnome3. I tried running having X use xinerama and not use xinerama, both cause gnome3 to crash, albeit in different ways. Other than that I am running a stock install as far as I know.

If there are some logs I should be looking at for gnome3.

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.

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?

Fedora :: Get The VGA To Work Is When We Have Another Monitor Plugged Into The DVI Port And Dual Head The System?

Jun 18, 2010

I've been troubleshooting a friends computer and we've pretty well hit a brick wall. The issue at hand is the video card will not output properly. To be specific, it's an NVidia card with both DVI and VGA ports. We want it to output via the VGA and ignore the DVI because there's nothing plugged in there (the monitor we want to use doesn't support DVI). At any rate, the only time we can get the VGA to work is when we have another monitor plugged into the DVI port and dual head the system. When we do this it also adds an extra "Unknown Monitor" to the display panel. When we just use the DVI the extra "monitor" disappears. now we don't want to have monitor sitting here useless just so we can use the vga out, but there seems little else to do. We tried installing the Nvidia proprietary drivers through the software manager and yum and it failed both ways.

This is really frustrating because it seems like it should be such a simple thing but nothing works. Does anyone else have similar issues? is there something i can do to fix this? I apologize if i've not provided enough info, but ask and i'll post anything you need to diagnose.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Dual Monitor - Graphic Not A "spanning" Desktop

Apr 6, 2010

have an Nvidia 8400GS installated (one VGA one DVi) and I have two Acer monitors (same size different model) one is attached VGA otehr DVI. The dual graphic seems to work; however, it is MIRRORED! It is not a "spanning" desktop that I would prefer. I tried to install the drive from nvidia but once I try to restart X it won't load and I have to revert back to my backup config which mirrors the desktop on both screens.

Hardware :: Dual Monitor - 2nd Monitor Not Coming Up - Xorg.conf Missing Something?

Oct 19, 2009

This is a repost of my initial problem, I need some one who knows what they are doing more than I too take a look at this command output and give some sort of direction/clue/etc on what I'm doing wrong or missing.

Is my xorg.conf missing some vital line(s) or setting?

My best guess is that i'm missing something to tell the Xserver to use both screens, as the Xorg.0.log does not talk about trying to bring up the intel display; but this is just a hunch.

I'm running kubuntu 9.04 with 2 monitors: on-board intel video and a PCI nvidia display: I am using my nvidia display fine, but still can not get my 2nd display (the intel) working. What the heck am I missing?

Fedora :: External Monitor Won't Work - Both Monitor And Laptop Screen Black

Aug 7, 2011

I am having problems getting my external monitor to work. When I plug in the monitor, both the laptop screen and the external monitor go black. When I unplug the monitor, the laptop screen works again.
When I startup with the external monitor plugged in, neither screen works or teh computer hangs or something.

I have had the external monitor going on a couple of occasions. I did manage to configure my monitors through System Settings > Display. I turned off the laptop monitor as I just want to use the external. But after rebooting, things didn't work.

I have a Thinkpad E420, Fedora 15

Fedora Hardware :: External Monitor Not Detected - Dell Laptop - Monitor

Aug 17, 2011

My software and hardware information are as follows. I have Fedora 12 and KDE 4.4.5 installed on a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. I believe it's a 64 bit processor; it's an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. The external monitor is a Dell as well.

My problem is that my system does not seem to be detecting an external monitor that I have connected. Everything else is working just fine; however, I would like to have the option of attaching an external monitor. When I plug the external monitor into the laptop, the external monitor remains black and appears to be in power save mode. The results of xrandr -q (with or without the external monitor attached: it doesn't appear to change) are as follows.

Code:

How can I get my laptop to recognize that the external monitor is even connected? Let me know if I can be more specific or provide additional details.

Ubuntu :: File Splitter Gui - DVD Burning Package That Splits Automatically?

Jan 9, 2011

To back up the virtual machine, the 9Gb file needs to be split in half so that they can burn it to DVD Using lxsplit is pretty simple for me, but these people are completely terrified of a terminal. Is there a simple gui front end for lxsplit so that I can just put an icon on the desktop for them? I've looked around with no success.

Or is there a DVD burning package that splits them automatically? Brasero is on there but it doesn't seem to have that capability. This would actually be the best option, as they wouldn't have to bother with a manual split at all.
