General :: Dual Monitor Using Aticonfig Single Head & Splitter Cable

May 27, 2010

I am attempting to get a Dual Monitor Display using aticonfig (and/or manual editing my xorg.conf file). My graphics card (a Radeon HD 4350 with latest ati drivers ) has only a single output but I am using a splitter cable to connect it to two monitors.

I am want one monitor to be 1600x1200 and the second monitor to be 800x600.

This is the command I had tried to no avail.

aticonfig -fq --initial --dtop=horizontal,reverse --resolution=0,1600x1200,1280x1024,1024x768 --mode2=800x600

What am I missing? Should I be using this configuration utility? Or should I be trying to manual edit my xorg.config? All the information I have been able to find seems specific to Dual Head Displays.

EDIT: It occurs to me to post my edited xorg.conf file

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.

Hardware :: Monitor Dual Head Top Down Display Config File Settings?

Jan 13, 2010

I want to be able to change the settings for my top down dual head display. Basically one monitor sits on top of another right now. How it was setup before was that they used to sit right next to each other so when you mouse over to the right it would go to the new screen. The problem is now when one sits on top of the other I want to be able to just mouse up instead of mousing over to the right. I don't want to use the gui to be able to do this. I want to find out what config file and specifically what setting in the config file would allow me to change this.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Samsung 2343BWX Monitor - Dual Head Black Screen

Nov 30, 2009

I'm a newbie to installing LINUX (was an Oracle DBA for many years) and I am having trouble getting the dual head function to work with my Sony Vaio laptop. I just select a generic LCD with the screen resolution that I want, but when I startx, I briefly get the login window (terminal), then everything goes blank and I have to unplus the samsung monitor and reboot to be able to have a screen again. I have tried the fn + f keys and that doesn't help.

Here is the hardware:
Samsung Syncmaster 2343BWX
Sony Vaio VGN-FJ170
Intel Graphics Mobile 915GM/GMS/910 GML Express graphics controller

I would like to use this laptop as:
Audio streaming from internet (so far not working on my local NPR stations)
Hooked up to KVM switch - using the Samsun monitor and an adesso integrated keyboard
Wireless network (that is working - but it took some doing....)

What files and logs I need to post I will do so, but if what I want to do is just not possible or a big hassle, please just let me know, and I will load windows. Although I really wanted one LINUX box in my home office.

Ubuntu :: Switch Between Single/dual Monitor Mode?

Jan 28, 2011

I recently hooked my television up to my computer as a second monitor so that I can watch videos on it. However, I don't always want to be in dual monitor mode. I've found that running "gksudo nvidia-settings" allows me to switch between the two modes without restarting X if I change some settings around and click "apply".

Is there a way I could setup two scripts to handle this process? The main problem I'm encountering is the fact that I change all the settings through the nvidia-settings graphical interface; therefore, I have no idea what's actually happening behind the scenes, so I don't know how to go about putting the two scripts together (what commands to issue, etc.).

General :: How To Fullscreen Application Across Both Monitors Of Dual Head Display

Feb 3, 2011

I have two Ubuntu 10.4 machines (and Ubuntu continues to hide more and more xorg.conf config such that I no longer know where to find it). One is a laptop running dual headed - DP1 is the internal screen, and VGA1 is an external monitor; both are running at 1600x900. The other machine is a desktop running both VGA1 and HDMI1 (which is actually a display port with a DVI adapter) at 1600x900. So in both instances my desktop is 3200x900. I run a VNC server on the laptop and connect to it (via SSH tunnel) from the desktop - when I press the full screen hot key, I get a 1600x900 view of the remote machine on one monitor, and half of my local desktop on the other monitor - the "full screen" only expands to fill one local monitor.

Normally this is exactly what you want when you full screen a web browser, email client, or other application. I'm sure there's some X magic to make it clear what a full screen actually entails, and the vnc client application is just dutifully accepting what it's told. While I would like to keep the normal full screen behavior for regular applications, but when I'm VNCing to another 3200x900 machine, I'd really like full screen to stretch across both local displays. Resizing the window to be "close" isn't quite good enough since I still have local panels at the top and bottom of one display (though I can set them to autohide), plus the VNC client application window border (since it doesn't appear to respect -notitle).

Is there any good way to have X lie to a single application about the "full screen" size? Can I get it to lie to all applications? xrandr --noprimary appears to have no effect.

I'm trying to configure Debian to have a spanning desktop with two monitors. One is VGA, and the other is Display Port. They are both with the video hardware on the motherboard, an Intel 4 Series Chipset Graphics Controller. This is the output I get when I do a query on xrandr:

OpenSUSE Install :: X.org Dual-head Under 11.3 With Radeon?

Jul 16, 2010

I've just performed a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.3. System specs include GA-MA790X-DS4, PhenomII X4 940 AM2+, Sapphire RadeonHD 3670, two monitors. What I'm trying to accomplish is to set up my KDE desktop to (as it did under 11.2) use a multi-desktop multi-output non-cloned setup, so that I can use my two monitors side by side and maximize windows in either one respectively, etc.

So here I am with my newly installed system. Obviously I can't use fglrx, as it doesn't yet support the 2.6.34 kernel, so amdcccle is right out. SaX2, I notice, is gone. I have tried using KDE's built-in configuration tools, but the dual-head setup doesn't persist between logins. Strangely, windows that were open on the second monitor do vanish off-screen, but the monitors return to their overlapped positions so it's useless. Monitor 2 doesn't even retain its resolution setting. As one does, I decided I'd manually edit the X configuration file. SHOCK HORROR! No xorg.conf So what I'm driving at is this: How oh how do I configure my X.org to remember that it has two, quite different, monitors under openSUSE 11.3 ? Sorry if this post is hard to follow, I got very little sleep while trying to sort out the myriad problems I caused myself in upgrading.

Hardware :: Dual Head Graphics Cards

Jun 14, 2011

I'm building another desktop. This is not a gaming system (though some video does cross my path), it's primary focus is as an application development platform. The thing is based on a SuperMicro two CPU motherboard with a couple intel multi-cores, 16GB RAM, a hardware RAID, and CentOS 5.6 (64bit). To this mix I would like to add a solid dual-head graphics card. Something that will support a couple HP LP2465 monitors (not new but functioning well). Speed of rendering is not my biggest concern, stability and "real estate" (the monitors are 1920x1200 and I want all of it).

I've looked a little at the Matrox items and started researching nVidia, but would like to hear opinions from those "in the know".The motherboard, though a solid performer, may have just made this trip unnecessary. It has a quirk that I hadn't considered before. It has several PCI-X slots (64-bit @ 133MHz) but only one "PCI-Express 1 (x8) on a (x16) slot". Does that seem a little strange to anyone else? Not that there is just one PCI-E but that it will fit a x16 board but will only support x8 connections...

Ubuntu Networking :: Have Single Cable Connection To Switch Carrying Two Subnets?

how i can use VLANs. as i have red on the web, it is possible to have a switch to allocate ports to a single VLAN. thus splitting subnets on a port allocation. since i have a pc running KVM, it is possible to create multiple subnets for DMZ and LAN. thus my question is - is it possible to have a SINGLE cable connection to a switch that carries TWO subnets? so that i can decide how to distribute then on the pc?

OpenSUSE :: How To Connect Remotely To A Dual-head KDE 4.6 Desktop

Jun 22, 2011

In this particular example I am using NoMachine's NX, although the behaviour also occurs when running VNC for instance. I'd like to connect from my laptop (1 physical screen), to my desktop at work (2 physical screen) via NX. It all works but the following problem occurs: When I connect with my laptop to my desktop I (almost) always am connected to the 2nd physical screen, whereas all windows appear on this first screen. I can interact with my desktop, use the task manager etc, see which windows are running, but any application I start, starts on the first screen (which I cannot see) and for the life of me I cannot move them from screen1 to screen2 without dragging them (which obviously is impossible since I only see screen2).The obvious workaround is: *before* you connect disable the second screen via the display manager but for me this is a non-pratical work around because it requires a lot of actions before heading home. how I can connect from a single-head desktop to a dual-head desktop without crippeling my desktop experience?

Ubuntu :: Dual Head Setup - Multiple Conky

Jun 14, 2010

I am trying out conky for the first time and rather enjoying it. I have a small frustration though. I have a dual head setup and would like to have identical conky's showing on both monitors. I have tried creating two .conkyrc's (.conkyrc1 & .conkyrc2) and then using:-

Code:
$ conky -c config1
$ conky -c config2
to launch them, this results in only one of the two conky's displaying. I did at first think that maybe they were on top of eachother, but one conkyrc is set bottom_left, the other bottom_right so they should not be right??

When I try to run them as above terminal shows:-
Code:
gregg@burt:~$ conky -c config1
Conky: invalid configuration file 'config1'
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.

Hardware :: Dual Head Monitors Under Nvidia With A Twist?

Oct 15, 2010

I have an Nvidia card that supports two monitors. Actually I have it setup. The problem I am having is I want to turn one of my monitors sideways so I can read forms easier. I can do this with just one monitor. RandR works fine with that. But it seems that when the system makes the two monitors into one long one it will not allow me to tweak the rotation in RandR.

Is there something I am missing. I deal with a lot of contracts and forms. And when I am reading them I hate scrolling. So I thought this could be an option. I have searched the net for 6 hours now. Maybe I do not know what I should be searching for.

General :: Dual Domain Names On A Single Network?

Aug 10, 2010

Here is my scenario and what I want to try and achieve.

I have:

Quote:

Server A = 192.168.1.5 (serverA.home.com)
Server B = 192.168.1.6 (serverB.home.com)

Currently I have serverA.home.com domain name set up using a free dns service online. When I am anywhere in the world I just type the domain name it hits my static ISP IP via the free dns servers online, hits my home router, gets port forwarded to 192.168.1.5 Server A and I am up and running.

Now...

I have bought a second domain for serverB and want it set up like serverA but I am totally baffled on how I can resolve 2 domain names on a single network? I need (somehow) to try and tell the dns servers that when I enter in serverB.home.com it will hit my static ISP IP as above and then hit my home router but then get directed/split to Server B and not to Server A.

Basically all I want to do is name the machines and get traffic resolved to them.

Debian Hardware :: Recommend Video Card For Dual Head

May 20, 2010

Can any recommend a PCIe video card for my AMD64 box?Looking for one which basically has a good working driver:

- can do dual head using DVI and VGA output.
- open source preferably, I've used the nvidia proprietary one before, was fine but kernel upgrades became a pain.
- passive heatsink so it's silent, doesn't need to be a fast card since my other two were both onboard graphics.
- driver can do KMS for nifty high res console.
- most typical features work, so Mplayer plays nicely and can scale to full screen etc. (xv output +/- accelerated decoding)
- even a bit of light 3D for openarena or compiz would be nice.
- don't mind buying second hand if they aren't available new

I've had a Nvidia 7050 on board which was ok, fast enough, but upgrading with the proprietary driver became painful, and that motherboard is dying a flaky death.
- The nouveau driver looked promising, but wasn't really in Debian at that stage. But I did once accidently boot a high res console while testing a brand new kernel (2.6.31 I think) and was blown away Currently got an ATI RS880 [Radeon HD 4200] on board which is fine, 2D is fast enough, but the open source driver isn't finished yet. It can't do dual head (horrible distortion and crashes), can't suspend to ram (freezes), Xvideo and any form of 3D acceleration are missing.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Get A Dual Head System To Work: Suse 11.3?

Oct 6, 2010

I have two identical Samsung monitors. One is connected. to my motherboard VGA port (and appears as a Radeon HD 4200).The other is connected to a VGA port on a separate PCI Radeon 9200 PRO board. When I first installed Suse 11.3, I had to go through the nomodeset boot command (otherwise my system froze up on boot) and I only get video on the screen connected to the motherboard. The other monitor light. flashes which means it's not seeing a video signal. And, I do not have an xorg.conf file in /etc/X11.

So I did the following:

I did an Xorg -config which created an xorg.conf.new file which looked sensible in that it showed both Radeons, and appeared to set up a dual-head system. The only change I made was to change the driver for both controllers from radeon to radeonhd. Then, I copied xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rebooted. And, nothing is changed. I still need to do nomodeset on boot and I still only get video on the screen connected to the motherboard. I'd attach the xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log files, but it says I can't add attachments to this post. I don't see any major errors in the Xorg.0.log file, but a lot of it is greek to me.

Ubuntu :: Dual Head On 2009 Mac Mini (nvidia 9400)?

I'm looking at the 2009 apple mac mini ([URL]and wondering if anyone has gotten dual head working? I'm putting two 17" or 19" monitors on, so nothing too adventurous. I know that I'll require the "Mini-DisplayPort-to-DVI" to get Dual DVI Adpaters, but I wanted to confirm that dual head would be supported from the start. I'm aware that there are issues with rebooting the device, possibly as a result of the wireless drivers. That doesn't bother me. Dual-head is a requirement I intend installing 9.10 and dual booting macos for firmware updates.
