Ubuntu :: Multi Monitor Support (Different Resolutions)

May 13, 2010

I have two monitors of different resolutions. Under settings->display the settings for my monitor look like this: [URL]. Ultimately what I want is to set up this kind of configuration: [URL]. But whenever I do, it doesn't work out. When I up after setting the above settings, my configuration ends up like this: [URL]. Any attempt to change the resolution or to change the display type to anything other then clone is simply ignored. If I disable the second monitor I can set my first to the proper resolution. If I try to set the settings to what I want they will stick but the second monitor doesn't actually turn on, and if i try to drag windows that direction it acts like a single display.

I have tried using the ATI control panel to adjust my display, but there seems to be a problem entering it as an administrator.I can load the CCC just fine as a regular user, but when I try as an admin a terminal pops up, I type in my password, and nothing happens. I want to avoid trying to reinstall my display drivers or do anything drastic. In previous versions of linux I would just nano the Xorg.conf file and be done with it, but it seems ubuntu 10.04 LTS doesn't use Xorg, or at least not a Xorg.conf I am used to. I want to set the monitors at their native res and as independent displays, similar to what twin view did for me not to long ago.

Ubuntu :: New VGA Cable Doesn't Recognize Monitor - Low Resolutions?

Jan 24, 2011

first time poster after having read gobs of threads trying to find the answer to my issue here. I'll try to post as much information as I can, and then will supply whatever else is inevitably left out and deemed necessary. I'm running 10.10 on a Gateway MX3701 laptop which has an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics controller (lspci | grep VGA) and am hooking it up to my Samsung P2770HD monitor/TV via VGA (VGA-0 port if that's important).

So, the issue: In resurrecting my old laptop by killing XP and putting on Ubuntu, I found I needed a VGA cable to connect to my monitor. Borrowed a friend's to get my setup going, and all was well in 1920x1080 with all the other monitor settings working well too (laptop monitor off, etc.. When my new VGA cable (cheap from Amazon) arrived and I shutdown, made new connection, and rebooted, my monitor was no longer recognized (it was before) and I am limited to weak sauce resolutions meant for my blinding grandmother.

So I've tried to find similar issues on here and have struggled to do so. I did find one thread that was similar, but the issue was never resolved.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Proper Monitor Type To Display All Resolutions

Jul 17, 2011

I just installed Natty (11.04) on an old computer for my disabled brother with:

* Video Card:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)
* Monitor:
VGA Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 750SB (old CRT monitor)

The problem is that when I select System -> Preferences -> Monitors, the monitor is shown as unknown and it only allows me to set 1280x1024 (shows 0Hz as display refresh rate) which is way too high for my brother. I was wondering if there's a way to select the proper monitor from a list so all display resolutions are shown and I can select a lower one for him.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Getting Extended Resolutions On Monitor?

Aug 7, 2009

I am somewhat new to CentOS, but I have read a lot of web pages and tried a good number of things trying to solve my own problem. I have made it worse a few times, but never better. I have an envision 1440x900 LCD monitor and a S3 Savage video chip on the motherboard. In System->Administration->Display->Hardware I am using generic LCD Panel 1440x900 and the video card is listed as "S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage KM266/KL266]. I believe both of these to be correct. I have added the mode to my xorg.conf

The problem is, under System->Preferences->Screen Resolution, the mode 1440x900 does not appear. The highest resolution is 1280x768. Does the S3 Savage just not have the ability to produce 1440x900?

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Set External Monitor To Higher Resolutions

Jul 8, 2011

I recently got a new external monitor for my laptop, and connected them by VGA. This is what 'xrandr' tells me:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1280x800 60.0 +
1024x768 60.0 
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
VGA1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 290mm
1920x1080 60.0 +
1600x1200 60.0
1680x1050 60.0
1280x1024 75.0 60.0
1440x900 75.0 59.9*
1280x960 60.0
1280x800 59.8
1152x864 75.0
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
832x624 74.6
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0
720x400 70.1

However when I try to change to some of the higher resolutions, such as 1920x1080, all I get is a corrupted and flickering image. As indicated above, I am currently on 1440x900@59.9h,z but for some reason 1440x900@75hz doesn't work. The same seems to be true for 1280x1024. The three resolutions above that all cannot be selected properly. I tried setting the resolution to maximum in Windows XP and it worked, and my video games console can set it to 1080p, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the monitor. Is there anything I can do or is this some kind of bug or limitation of the graphics driver or something? The graphics chipset of the laptop is an Intel 945GM, which I believe should be capable of displaying 1920x1080. I am running debian unstable with what seems to be the most up to date version of xserver-xorg-video-intel.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Dual Monitor Xinerama With Different Resolutions

Apr 20, 2011

Today I bought a new monitor (IPS236V) to use it to watch movies and tv while I'm working on the other one.. I thought it's the best to activate Xinerama which could be done easy via CCC. But I'm not able to change the resolutions now as these panels are disabled in CCC. The first monitor is set to its native resolution, but the second is something lower.How can I configure both monitors to there native resolution?

SUSE :: Dual Monitor Xorg Configuration With Different Resolutions?

Oct 31, 2010

I have been tasked to set up 2 monitors on SUSE Linux Enterprise that are a clone of each other, but each displaying different resolutions. The primary display has a max resolution of 1024x768 while the secondary display has a max resolution of 800x600.

The problem comes when the secondary display shows a "cropped" version of the desktop. Is there anyway to show different resolutions on each display while maintaining the proper desktop look?

Software :: Dual Monitor Xorg Configuration With Different Resolutions?

I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post this topic (I was struggling between hardware and software). But since I do not think this was a problem with my hardware(monitor), I decided to post it here.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Available Resolutions Vary Depending If Monitor Is On Or Off When Starting System?

Aug 10, 2010

I just installed 11.3 in one of my computers and I've noticed the resolution was sometimes changing after a reboot. First it was switching from 1280x1025 to 1024x768 with the default deivers, then I thought installing Nvidia propietary drivers would solve the problem, but now is switching between 1280x1024 and 640x480. After several attemps to fix it I found out that the system uses the correct resolution if it starts with the monitor switched on, but falls back to 640x480 if it's off when the system boots, which is almost always since I usually control this pc trough vnc.

I Tryed to specify the available resolutions in xorg.conf, and adding the preferred mode option, but it didn't help. I tryed also to use xrand in .profile to force 1280 resolution, but it doesn't work either (when the system is started with monitor off, xrand only shows 640x480 and 320x240 as available resolutions, and so does the system preferences panel).

Here's the xorg.conf I'm using right now:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 256.35 (buildmeister@builder101) Wed Jun 16 19:25:59 PDT 2010

Ubuntu Installation :: Some Screen Resolutions Don't Work In 11.04

May 5, 2011

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04, I find that I can not successfully set the screen resolution of an external monitor to 1280x1024, for instance. The screen draws blocks of graphics in strange places & doesn't seem to erase properly. This screen resolution worked in 10.10, as did all the display options. However, now that I've upgraded only resolutions of 1024x768 & lower work OK. Is this is a bug in 11.04? My hardware: Dell Inspiron Mini 10v, Intel Atom CPU N270 1.60GHz, 1GB RAM

Fedora :: Second Monitor Not Showing Proper Resolution?

Oct 1, 2010

It seems that whenever I boot my laptop (hp probook 6450b) without a monitor attached, then boot with a monitor later attached, the configuration gets all messed up.

Currently, if I boot with the monitor attached, right after the blue loading screen (at the login prompt) i get two black monitors and a mouse, with no login screen. Unplugging the monitor shows the login screen on the laptop.

If i boot without the monitor attached, log in, then plug it in, i see the following from xrandr:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2390 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 310mm x 174mm
1366x768 59.6*+
1024x768 60.0


However, now when I reboot, all settings are lost, and if the monitor is attached, i get the black screen with a mouse at login.

I did notice that when I shutdown, it hangs on "Running guests on default URI", and i get a stack trace. It will keep dumping stack traces, and i have to hold down the power button to force it off.

Debian :: 8.1 Second Monitor Is Detected But Only Showing Black Screen

Jul 30, 2015

I've recently installed Debian v8.1 and installed Nvidia driver 340.46. In nvidia-settings I am able to enable my second monitor and enable it/set it's position..etc. My second monitor is not being detected in Debian Display and is 'on' but only showing a black screen. I've tried researching and implementing various 'fixes', but I'm not having any luck.

I'm running dual GTX 570's with a monitor plugged into one each (DVI). I noticed in my xorg.conf under Section "Screen" I have an option "MultiGPU" "Off"; would this be part of the issue?

I've tried:
- purging all nvidia drivers and re-installing
- installing different versions of nvidia drivers
- add nomodeset in grub

Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Higher Resolutions After Install (Sandy Bridge I5-2500K, VGA)?

after installing Natty on my brand new shuttle with Intel's Sandy Bridge Core i5 (2500K), everything works fine except setting up a higher resolution fitting to my screen.All I need is a 2048x1152 resolution, but all the display configuration in the hardware section of the system settings offers is 1024x768, 800x600, 848x480 or 640x480.The monitor is connected via VGA since it doesn't have a DVI or HDMI plug.Is there a way to tell the system there is more capability? Do I need a different driver? What and where can I check this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Plymouth Load Screen Producing Video Artifacts On Higher Resolutions

May 1, 2010

I have a problem with Plymouth. It works pretty well on low res, but on higher resolution some strange video artefacts appear - see attachments.

I use ATI proprietary drivers, if it has something to do with it.

The resolution is set in /etc/default/grub like this:

edit: reducing colour depth doesn't help /end edit

I don't know whether it has anything to do with the current problem, but Plymouth used not to appear at all until I followed these instructions (or actually I took them from another thread but I can't find it at the moment and these are the same).

I don't know whether it's possible to take them during booting so I've taken these photos with a mobile and retouched in gimp to remove reflections (more or less), and since I'm no pro photographer nor photoshop/gimp master they look as they look. They should do to demonstrate the problem, though.

Ubuntu :: Set Different Resolutions On Each Screen?

Jul 26, 2010

I use a 17" laptop with a 22" secondary monitor running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. The res on the laptop screen is 1440x900 (16:10) and the secondary monitor mirrors this. Problem is that because the secondary monitor aspect ratio the display is somewhat distorted. It's not so bad that it is unreadable but I work in IT so I am at my computer for around 8hours a day so it wear thin after a while.

Is there a way for me to set different resolutions on each screen? The laptop have an ATI Radeon Graphics card and cannot change the Resolution above 1440x900 even within ATI Catlyst control center.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Two Monitors With Different Resolutions?

Apr 12, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on an HP laptop with an Intel 82852/82855 GM/GMC Graphics controller. I have a 2nd monitor attached to the VGA port (HP f1703). The problem is that the two screens have different resolutions. the laptop is 1280 x 768 and the other monitor is 1280 x 1024. The xorg.conf file that was created with Xorg -config set both monitors up with 1280 x 1024 resolution so my screen on the laptop looks all "squashed". I have tried to reconfigure it using the Display Preferences dialog but after i re-boot, both screens are unviewable and I have to restore my previous xorg.conf file. I went through the HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide procedure to setup a "safe" configuration but didn't work and I had to restore my "good' xorg.conf file. What do I need to do to setup my two screens with the correct resolutions: 1280 x 768 and 1280 x 1024?

Here is the video portion from my "good" xorg.conf file

Ubuntu :: Blurry Graphics On Low Resolutions?

Nov 1, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer. The default display driver supplied with it only allowed the screen's default resolution (1280x1024), so I downloaded and installed nVidia's latest driver (260). When I change the resolution to anything lower than the default, the graphics (and most notably letters) everywhere appear slightly blurry, becoming more and more blurry as I lower the resolution. The blur is not terrible, I can still use it but it becomes annoying to watch after a while. I am using a GT240 graphics card, and this problem does not exist on Windows using the same resolution and same driver version.
