Hardware :: Some NVidia 8400s - Triple Monitors Setup?

Jan 21, 2010

I have been trying my little heart out to get triple monitors setup but I just cant seem to do it. So I have decided that I will quit out on my current video cards and pick up a few new ones and see where this takes me. The cost effective ones seemed to be some 8400s, one would be a PCI-express and one would be on the normal PCI but both are the same GPU. So with this setup would X be able to run all 3 screens with composting so I can run compiz and stuff. And have it one extended x session not 3 separate ones? Specifically I was looking at [URL].

Hardware :: Triple Monitors Xorg With AMD&NVIDIA: XRANDR And Xinerama Not Working?

Mar 24, 2011

I'm trying to set up a tri monitor setup. Unfortunately I must use 2 cards, one an AMD HD4350 and a PCI Geforce FX200. (Old skool I know) Due to the restrictions, I am forced to use the open source drivers (else nvidia glx will clash).

1: Use XRANDR to span the displays (this is what I did previous to the introduction of the third monitor and nvidia card to my system) I tried to do this, by setting up a second X screen on the NVIDIA card, disabling Xinerama; but after much googling I can't figure out the syntax for panning across 2 screens (X screens) in XRANDR, even tho it's >1.3, which supposedly supports multi card output.

2:Use Xinerama, sacrificing randr, and composite extensions. I also attempted to do this, with some limited success. I could get the NVIDIA screen to be right of the ATI, but I couldn't get 2 independent outputs running on the ATI card, even with "ZapohHeads" appended to one of the device sections for my ATI card.

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 :: Xinerama With Triple Monitors - 11.04

Jun 21, 2011

Did a new install with a system that worked well on 10, with Xinerama. I have nvidia 9500 GT cards, but I dont think its driver related. Screen 0 is the center Screen 2 is to the right And Screen 3 is to the left.. When Xinerama is disabled things work flawlessly, but not using Xinerama is a killer to me. The nvidia configuration utility generates the following xorg.conf when Xinerama is disabled. It gets the locations right and the mouse moves correctly between screens.

General :: TV Out/triple Head With Nvidia 9500GT On Ubuntu 10.04 X64 ?

Jul 11, 2011

I'm trying to get rid of my dedicated media center and connect my desktop to my TV instead. No matter what I change I get no picture at all on the TV when connected to the desktop. I already have two LCD monitors using nvidia's "TwinView" mode and I want the TV to just be an extension of this, at a lower resolution.

My system information is below, but note that anything in the tag " ### NEW {}" in the xorg.conf is my attempt at getting this to work, the rest was already there. Two LCD monitors are screens 0 and 1, the TV is screen 2.

Ubuntu :: HDD Partition Setup For Triple Boot?

Nov 1, 2010

I've looked everywhere for a satisfactory answer, to no avail. I wish to triple boot xp/98/ubuntu 10.10. Is this an appropriate HDD setup? (it looks like this in partition magic pro srever 8.05)

*:SYSTEM........ NTFS......... primary ..........(for xp)
C:WIN98......... fat32 .........primary,active (for win98 )
*:UBUNTU....... LinuxExt3 ...Primary ..........(for Maverick Meerkat)
.........* Extended
............. *:SWAPSPACE2.... Linux swap .....logical
. ...........D: DATA................. fat32............. logical (for all things backup)

There is nothing on any of the drives at this point. (I am submitting this on a crappy 233mhz win95 laptop)

Here's the information i've gathered so far... Install in the following order: 98, XP, Ubuntu XP's drive label MUST be "SYSTEM" (I think?) Installing multiple os's is easy (i've read) if you hide unused partitions during install (ie. if installing XP, hide C:WIN98 and *:UBUNTU partitions) but i can only do this with FAT formats, and if i do that, the dirve letter changes, which is a problem (i suppose i could manually hide/unhide, and set active the partition I want at every boot-up....(Damn))

And here's a couple more questions SHOULD I make everything fat32? do they have to be primary to boot? ('98 on an inactive partition won't load) Once they are all installed... where do i put grub? Do i put it in first? Also, I deleted my dell utility partition to do this, is that a problem? (LOL, I have NO idea what I'm doing...Fck)

Like i said, finding information about the partition setup (logical/primary) is damn near impossible. Even if it's just a "Ya that'll do for a setup"

I'm gonna keep experimenting, since there's no longer anything to lose on my HDD, and i'll report back any improvements I come across

Debian Multimedia :: Triple Monitor Setup On Wheezy

Apr 29, 2015

I have some very strange issues with my tripple monitor setup on debian wheezy. I have acer aspire V3 laptop with i915 Intel (Intel® HD Graphics 4000) as part of i3 and nvidia GT 740M which I never managed to get working with or without optimus to any degree whatsoever. What I want is a reliably working triple monitro setup. I have 2 additional DELL u2412m monitors which I did manage to get to work on few occasions by more or less randomly turning stuff on and off via lxrand and KDE systemsettings (so I do knwo for a fact that tripple monitor setup works). Arandr doesn't work, and executing xrandr from cmd doesn't work. I can relatively easily get the 2 monitors to mirror each other, but to get them to work separately is extremy difficult. It's always the same error but the well known crt. For example:

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 3840x0 --rotate normal
xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --rotate normal --right-of LVDS1
xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed

When it did work I copied arandrs script in hopes it would work, but it doesn't. Obviously, here is the issue that the crtc can not be configured so if somoen could tell me why and how to get the damn thign to use a specific crtc it would be awesome. Also, I noticed that when I hit "identify monitors" in KDE systemtools, it would say VGA HDMI for both VGA and HDMI outputs.

Here is xrandr output from when it worked:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 5760 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0x46) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm

        Subpixel:   horizontal rgb
        Gamma:      1.0:1.0:1.0
        Brightness: 1.0

[Code] ......

Here is now:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Triple Boot Setup - IRQ Conflict

May 22, 2009

Basically I have a triple boot setup on a mac pro tower. Windows /osx /centos 5.3 everything was great until I tried setting up my Wacom. I did get it setup but in the process revealed a problem I was having that I didn't notice until this point. Mind you my system boots perfectly everything runs perfectly except I believe my DVDrom and rear usb ports are trying to share the same IRQ and from what it looks like they don't want to play nice with each other. Eventually CentOS kills the IRQ thus killing both devices. Everything works fine on the windows and mac osx side. I have tried unplugging and replugging the DVDROM, I wanted to try another ide channel but the motherboard only has one. I have changed the device from auto to master to slave. When the DVDROM is removed i have no IRQ errors in my dmesg. I forgot to add that adding IRQpoll to my grub boot pretty much destroys the system.... hard lock within 20 seconds of loging in. In CentOS, is there anyway that I can force the DVDROM to it's own IRQ?

Handlers:
[<ffffffff8000d346>] (ide_intr+0x0/0x1df)
[<ffffffff801e65ca>] (usb_hcd_irq+0x0/0x55)
Disabling IRQ #98
hda: lost interrupt

Fedora Hardware :: Triple-screen Setup With HD4870 + 8600GT?

Sep 4, 2010

I have a working two-monitor setup with an ATI HD4870 (Samsung 23" @ 1920x1080 and 20" @ 1600x900).I also have an nVidia 8600GT plugged into the secondary PCI-Express port that I use with a third monitor (17" @ 1280x1024) within Windows 7.I want this third monitor running in Linux as well. I have already tried installing the kmod-nvidia driver, but that screwed up my xorg.conf every boot, so I've reverted back to my old setup.What I'd ideally need is all three screens in a "big desktop" setup. My current xorg.conf is:

Code:

[craig@galileo ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0

Ubuntu :: Trying To Set Up Dual Monitors With Nvidia

Jan 24, 2011

I'm trying to set up my monitor and tv for dual display but I'm having some problems. I want them to display the same thing so I've enabled twinview and I figured the second display position should be set as clone but when I save xorg and restart the x server the position reverts to absolute. Anyway, the monitor is set as the primary display and it's the one I'm having problems with. The tv is fine but the monitor's display is stretched off the screen so I can't see the far right or bottom of the screen. I'm very new to linux and I'm just finding my feet so if there's any other info needed you'll probably have to be very specific.

Slackware :: Mirror Two Monitors With NVIDIA?

Feb 23, 2010

I have been playing around a bit today and decided to hook my tv up to my slack box. I have an NVIDIA gt220 using the proprietary drivers which supports multiple monitors and I can get various setups like an extended desktop and xinerama, but what I can not seem to do, and what I'd actually like to do, is just have both the monitor and the TV display the same images. If it would work better/easier I also have a second NVIDIA card, although it is a different model. I haven't bothered trying that yet as it seems like it would be easier to configure one card instead of two.

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

Fedora :: F13: Nvidia Wallpaper Spanning With Dual Monitors?

Sep 23, 2010

Ever since upgrading from F11 to F13, wallpaper spanning has been driving me nuts. No matter what the size of the wallpaper, I cannot get it to span two desktops correctly anymore. Most styles (zoom, scale, etc...) cause the image to be duplicated on both screens and the "span" style centers the image between the screens and appears to scale down the image leaving large gaps on either side. It's like the background program doesn't recognize the "virtual resolution".

Fedora Hardware :: Gnome 3 - 15 - Nvidia Multiple Monitors ?

Jun 2, 2011

Anyone have a multi-card, multidisplay setup working with gnome 3 and Fedora 15? I have two nvidia 9500GT cards driving 4 monitors (2 per card) using the proprietary nvidia drivers (270.41.19) The setup had been working fine with the previous version of Gnome and Fedora 14. I was using xinerama to have one large desktop spanning 4 screens. No problems until I upgraded. KDE works after configuring using nvidia-settings, however gnome 3 is not useable. I get two screens black (but with mouse pointers when I move the mouse) and the right two screens with the background but the activities corner in the right hand side of the right most screen, rendering it useless.

Ubuntu :: Poor Desktop Performance With NVidia And Four Monitors?

Dec 20, 2010

I experience very poor desktop performance on my system. General clicking responsiveness is poor, taking over second or two to focus to a new window, move windows around, ... etc. The Xorg process constantly uses over 60% of the CPU even when I'm doing nothing, and when I do click around it will quickly go up near 100% usage. Performance is initially OK when I first launch into my Gnome environment, but it soon deteriorates within 30 minutes or so. Eventually, after days of being up and running, my desktop will crash.I am running Ubuntu 10.10 with latest upgrades. I have four monitors attached to my "nVidia Corporation G98 [Quadro NVS 420]" graphics card. I am running the "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)" recommended in the Ubuntu "Additional Drivers" app. I get a fair number (hundreds) of these in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Code:

[862923.098] (WW) NVIDIA(2): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ba04, 0x0000ba14)
[862923.099] (WW) NVIDIA(3): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ac44, 0x0000ac54)
[862923.099] (WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000fca0, 0x0000fcb0)

[code]....

though they don't appear constantly while my desktop is running (I assume they may come in batches?). Not sure if they're relevant. A separate issue, though possibly related, is the SpeedCrunch app (a desktop calculator) is guaranteed to crash my desktop as soon as it gets focus. Here's the relevant output of "lspci -v" which shows my graphics card:

Code:

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Nvidia No Xorg.conf And Dual Monitors

Jun 2, 2011

fresh install of 11.04 on a built system (frankenstein leftovers), 2.something ghz, 1gb ram, a host of drives, and a 64mb nvidia mx440 with svideo out. Boots up, looks pretty, something about unity not finding 3d graphics (fine, i don't really want it, just more fancy gui crap to suck cpu cycles) and runs fairly well. so I think, cool, svideo out, old 52" rear projection....HTPCish. "Lemme get this thing hooked up to the tv, what a great idea" So, I start looking around and find all kinds of wrong posts about not Natty, and not my video card, and I try this n that,and it doesn't work. I'm all about reading the forums, but I can't find the right info for my sitiation, and I'm overwhelmed/irritated.

Long story short, I added some repository ppg something, and then dl'd and installed the "nvidia-current" driver. After a reboot, I fire up the nvidia gui, and it tells me I have no xorg.conf and to run a particular command in terminal to make one. So I did it. and after another reboot, my system just hangs at "ubuntu" with the four (five?) dots. Reboot, recovery, something something something, safe graphics, backup your xorg.conf? yes. reboot and all is ok now. still no nvidia support. Now I'm reading the internet machine about the xorg.conf being old school, and how I have to make a monitor.conf file with config settings. only problem is it tells me to go to x11/xorg.conf.d/whatever. I have no xorg.conf.d directory. So what's the deal? How in the hell do I get the nvidia driver installed (I think I got that), configured (I have no clue), and running (yeah, I just saw a flying pig)?

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.
