Ubuntu :: Laptop Touchpad Doesnt Switch Screens Dual Monitor?

May 28, 2010

Setup:Ubuntu 10.04 recently upgraded from 9.10Dell Precision m63004G RAMCore 2 DuoDual Monitor with laptop=screen0 monitor=screen1external mouse and keyboardIssue:In both 9.10 and 10.04 (I am just now trying to solve the issue) the setup works great, but not flawless.External mouse and keyboard work with no issue.The touchpad mouse on the laptop, however, will not switch from screen1 to screen0. It works fine on either screen and will go from screen0 to screen1, just will not return. One has to hook up an external mouse to get the cursor back onto the laptop screen0.

Ubuntu :: Xinerama And Dual Screens - Create Another Panel On The 2nd Monitor?

Jun 6, 2010

I'm having some issues getting my two monitors (both 1600x900) to work well with Xinerama. The first thing I'm having trouble with is getting 1 wallpaper to span across both monitors..from what I've googled it's sounds like I'm not the first either The 'span' function in the change wallpaper window doesn't do it. The second thing is that I would like the panels to stretch across both monitors well, or at least be able to create another panel on the 2nd monitor which I can't do now.Here's my xorg.conf file:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "amdcccle Layout"
Screen 0 "amdcccle-Screen[1]-0" 0 0[code]....

Hardware :: Momentary Blanking Of Screens With Dual Monitor Setup

May 6, 2011

I did set up dual monitors few times on few of my boxes, with 3 video cards :

Radeon 9250 AGP (have 2 of them) - with open source ATI driver
Geforce 6200 PCIE - with nouveau driver

In all cases I connect 2 LCDs. one 1440x900 or 1680x1050 to DVI and one 1280x1024 to VGA (all the cards have DVI and VGA out). The LCDs are the same ones tested with all cards :

1440x900 : Benq FP-92W
1680x1050 : Teac T2005L15 (identified as KTC2002 in xorg)
1280x1024 : Proview PQ-721KP

Tried on different boxes runnning Arch linux, different kernel / x / drivers / kde versions

Problem is - in all those setups, one monitor allways randomly blanks for a split second and comes back (incl. switching of the backlight, and displaying the "Source : VGA" or "Source : DVI" title as if it was switched off and on)

This happens randomly, but (more pronounced with the ATI cards) related to me clicking on stuff or the display changing (even if the changes are on the second screen)

With the Radeons only the monitor connected to DVI blanks. And the 2 radeons do it in different frequency, one is more often and one less

With the Geforce only the monitor connected to VGA blanks

When I test with 1 monitor (other one disabled in xorg) : Radeons sometimes still do that to DVI monitor but rare (much less than with VGA connected) (VGA monitor never blanks). Geforce does not do it at all and has problem only when 2 monitors are connected

I first thought its a hardware issue (the cards are from junk), but it happens the same with totally different hardware (exceps using same monitors) so i no longer think it is

There is nothing interesting in Xorg.0.log

General :: Get Dual Screens Working On A Dell E6410 Laptop With U10.04 64 Bit?

Jul 12, 2010

I've installed the drivers from nVidia. When I go into the NVIDIA X Server Settings application, in the X Server Display Configuration setcion, and click the "Configure" button, "TwinView" is disabled. Also, clicking "Detect Displays" doesn't pick up my monitor (which is connected through a port replicator - keyboard and mouse in that port replicator work fine).

Has anyone else seen this? Is this just a limitation of the current nvidia linux drivers?

Ubuntu :: Switch Between Laptop Display And External Monitor?

Mar 1, 2011

I am looking for a way to switch quickly and easily between my Laptop Display and my External Monitor, in Windows I had it configured so that when I plugged my Monitor in it would switch to that and when I removed it it would switch back to Laptop Display. From what I have tried it looks like this isn't possible with Linux, but I would like to get to the stage when I can click an icon to switch (or 1 to go to External and 1 to go to Laptop) My Laptop has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series Graphics Card and I have so far noticed the following issues.

1. If I use the Gnome Monitors instead of ATI Catalist Control Centre it seams to cause some strange issues include confusing Linux on what the max screen res supported by my External Monitor is.

2. When I try and enable/Disable either Display or change Resolution, I am told that I have to reboot before the changes take affect.

Ubuntu :: Switch Display To External Monitor With Laptop Lid Closed?

Dec 23, 2010

I don't know if it sounds weird but I've been trying for weeks with no result. I want to plug my external monitor through my laptop's vga plug, close the lid and work on my monitor instead of the laptop's monitor. I looked through the gnome power management settings and when the laptop lid is closed it can only suspend, blank screen, hibernate or shutdown. I can plug my monitor and I have clone displays and it works fine but I can' find a way to shutdown the laptop screen without shutting down the vga outlet. Its a brand new Acer aspire 5734Z with a 15,6 inches screen (wich is why I want to plug in my 19 inches monitor and work on bigger screen)

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.).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Monitor Won't Work - Laptop Lenovo T60

Feb 18, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop Lenovo T60. The problem is i can't make extended monitor in that way: laptop 1024x768 and Monitor LG L1952HQ 1280x1024. If i make this configuration, screens appear black and i can't go back without restarting. Presently system support only: laptop 1024x768 and LG L1952HQ 800x600. This configuration (laptop 1024x768 and LG L1952HQ 1280x1024) worked well previously with the same ubuntu 9.10 before reinstallation. I guess i should reinstall ore change to other video drivers? The refresh rate is set on 60 Hz.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 11.04 On Laptop With Two Screens

Jun 14, 2011

I want to install and use 11.04 64bit on my laptop. My laptop's matrix is broken so I connected another monitor for it to work. Everything was fine until I updated to 11.04 from 10.04. After installing and turning on laptop, it loaded unity, and my monitor didn't turn on. Because my laptop main screen isn't working I cant check for screen or look for preferences to change.

Ubuntu :: Virtual Box VM And Dual Screens?

Jul 18, 2010

I use multiple screens on my computer in work which is running Ubuntu 10.04 it runs great apart from the VBox VM. I run a windows VM as some apps we use in the office are not compatible with ubuntu and I can't get them running right in wine. In single screen mode I use the VM in 'seamless' mode so the windows start menu just sits on top of the ubuntu panel and I can flip from ubuntu to windows as I please in the same interface (im sure anyone that uses VBox will understand what I mean).

The problem comes when I use a second screen. If I try to run in seamless mode on the main screen it works ok apart from the fact that the windows start menu sits behind the ubuntu panel instead of on top of it. When I move the VM to the second screen I cannot run it in seamless mode at all, if I try the resolution goes hay wire and I only get half the screen (if im lucky). So I just run it in full screen mode which stops me from dragging windows from within the windows VM back to the first screen.

What I want to be able to accomplish is to run the VM in seamless mode on either screen but be able to drag windows accross both screens. Is that at all possible?

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Driver 4 Tiny Screens On One Monitor?

Jun 25, 2010

This happened after ubuntu pushed an nvidia graphics update about a week ago, on upgrade I booted up into this:Obviously I had to take this picture with a camera, since a screenshot only showed one screen. It's perfectly usable like this, except that it's too small to read.I of course have tried 'sudo nvidia-xconfig', and a minimal xorg.conf:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection

Along with purging and reinstalling all of the nvidia packages numerous times. I'm currently running on the VESA driver, which sucks. My chipset is a 9200M, but like I said, it worked perfectly before the last upgrade. In all my years of using linux and kubuntu, I've seen and fixed numerous nvidia driver errors, but I've never seen one this strange, usually it will run or not run.

Ubuntu :: Positioning Screens - Xorg.conf - Vertical Monitor Cursor?

May 23, 2010

Just a day ago I did a clean install of 10.04, after wiping the disk clean of 9.10. So far everything's working great. Except for my old dual-screen configuration. A year or two ago I badly wanted to have 2 monitors, where both would share the same desktop/workspace allowing me to drag windows back and forth between the two. After a lot of research, I finally was able to put together (although a probably quite sloppy) xorg.conf file that did the trick for me.

My case is somewhat unique in that my left monitor is horizontal, while my right monitor is rotated 90 degrees, and is vertical. In 10.04, my old xorg.conf file sort of works, but I have problems on my right, vertical screen:

- when I move my cursor onto the vertical screen, when I try to move it above where my left, horizontal screen's boundaries end, my cursor jumps down to the bottom of my vertical screen. I can't access anything with my cursor above this boundary on my vertical screen. Note that my vertical screen's bottom is in aligned with my horizontal screen's bottom, and that the vertical screen sticks up above the horizontal screen, as both have a 1680 x 1050 resolution/widescreen aspect ratio.

- however, it appears that only my cursor is having issues accessing the upper part of my vertical screen. When I maximize windows in this screen, they properly fill it up entirely like they should. (but I still can't access the top parts of these applications with my cursor).

So obviously there must be some boundary managing where my cursor is allowed to go, and another set of rules defining the boundaries that the windows themselves can be shown/take up. Also note that because of my right monitor being rotated vertically, I'm forced to use Xinerama. Can someone help me go through my xorg.conf file, below, to help me get this "simple" cursor issue fixed? I'm sure it's just one minor thing that has to be changed, but I'm not sure what:

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Sun Feb 1 20:21:04 UTC 2009
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder57) Thu Jul 17 18:39:19 PDT 2008
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors - Cursor Gets Stuck Between X Screens

Aug 5, 2010

I have dual monitors that I have set up with two separate X screens with the nVidia control panel. For some reason at times when I move my mouse between the two screens, the cursor will start flickering rapidly between the adjacent edges of the screens and the system will become completely unresponsive, forcing me to do a hard reboot (the keyboard doesn't have a SysRq key).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can Xrandr Supports Dual Screens

Dec 30, 2010

how Xrandr supports Dual screens. I am attempting to setup Dual Screens on a Ubuntu 10.10 System with an ATI twin head card (DVI + HDMI) Non-mirrored, separate desktops However on connecting a device to the HDMI output - the DVI screen output appears to loose all panels, icons. Only the mouse pointer & desktop background remains.

I believe the output is defaulting from screen 0 to screen 1. I found a solution by creating two devices in xorg.conf and assigning one for each separate screen. BUT this created a new problem of loosing my mouse pointer. how I can get my mouse pointer working or the correct way to setup dual screens.

General :: When Switch Buttons In Synaptics Touchpad - Tapping Gives A Right-click Menu

Jan 23, 2010

I work on a laptop and typically have a USB mouse plugged in. Each time I start an X session, I switch my mouse buttons with an: Quote:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"

If I decide to unplug the mouse and work with the touchpad, I must always reverse the options again to pointer = 1 2 3, or else, while the right and the left button still work as a left-handed mouse, tapping, instead of acting like a left-click, gives a right-click menu. My touchpad is listed as:

'ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad'
using the evdev driver.

I admit that I haven't played much with alternate xmodmap configurations, but I'd like to sort this out. It's even more confusing since I don't have a xorg.conf and, if I manually add one, despite having tried repeatedly, I can't make X-server to read it.

The relevant part of lshal output: Quote:

udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/platform_i8042_i8042_AUX3_port_logicaldev_input'
info.capabilities = {'input', 'input.mouse'} (string list)
info.category = 'input' (string)
info.parent = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/platform_i8042_i8042_AUX3_port' (string)

Fedora :: Dual Independant X Screens From One Computer

Mar 30, 2010

My setup:

One computer running F12.
NVidia with 2 CRT outputs, and one S-Video/TV output
Standard PS2 keyboard and mouse
USB (wireless) keyboard and mouse
Sound card w/ Optical SPDIF, and standard analog front/rear outputs

At present, I have CRT-0 connected to a standard monitor that I can get resolutions up to 1920x1440. TV output is connected to a flat panel monitor, with a max resolution of 1024x768. SPDIF audio output connected to TV system, and analog output (front only) connected to destop speakers. Note that the monitor/speakers are in one room, and the TV w/ SPDIF audio is in another, with the USB kbd/mouse.

I can get a cloned twin view set up on both, with the USB kbd & mouse/TV/SPDIF mirroring the monitor/PS2 kbd & mouse/speakers - but only at a max resolution of 1024x768. That by the way needs to be the virtual screen size for the TV. If I want to switch between the two max resolutions (one when using the monitor, the other the TV) I have to edit xorg.conf and change the modes line for the display, then restart the X server.

I would like to have the monitor set up to its max 1920x1440 resolution with a virtual screen size the same, and the TV set up for 1024x768 with that for its virtual screen size. I also would like the separate kbd and mice to operate with the respective screens. Ideally, each screen would be independent of the other - running two different apps on each output, similar to separate workspaces. Is something like this possible? It's a pain to have to re-edit xorg.conf and restart X every time I want to switch from watching TV to working on my monitor.

Ubuntu :: Dual Screens: Need Mirror Image Not Extra Desktop?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm using an Intel chipset GMA4500 and Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome. The monitor configuration tool does not seem to have an option to make the secondary screen a mirror image of the primary screen. It works fine when I connect my TV using HDMI as a second screen, but I want it to be a mirror of the primary, because some apps like Skype will only go "full screen" on the primary display.

Ubuntu Networking :: VNC And Dual Head Setup (separate X Screens)?

Jan 2, 2011

I have my computer set up to use separate x screens for both of my monitors and almost everything works perfectly. With this set up I don't have any problem displaying flash in full screen on either monitor like I had with twinview. I have it set up this way so that I can use my TV to display mythtv and still use my computer monitor to browse the web, etc. The only problem is that I use my iphone with hipporemote to give me a wireless keyboard/mouse. When using twinview this was not a problem as it was just one large desktop spread over two monitors.

However, switching to separate x screens seems to have broken the functionality of the vnc server. When using my physical keyboard and mouse I can just move the cursor off the side of monitor 1 to control monitor 2, however, if I'm connected via vnc the cursor gets "trapped" inside the active monitor. I can interact with each screen as expected but if I want to switch the mouse/keyboard focus to the other monitor I have to go to the computer and move the mouse to the desired monitor, which obviously defeats the purpose of using the iphone as a wireless remote.

So my question is this. Is there a way to assign a hotkey combination to switch the focus of keyboard and mouse that the vnc server is controlling? Or could I set the vnc server to only control one of the two x screens?

I have installed it on the 2nd hard drive, not sure if I correctly (manually) partitioned but I put ( I believe) a home partition, a swap partition, left ( so I thought) a 3rd partition space, and said install. Ubuntu runs fine and see the small HD with WinXP but WinXP doesnt see the HD with Ubuntu, and I wanted to use the 3rd partition for the WinXp as I need to use that for Grant writting I do for not for profit organisations govt depts that I apply for grants from are MS freaks, that said, all runs ok but what have I done that wont let WinXP see to utilise the 3rd partition.

Fedora Installation :: Laptop Doesnt Load After The First Reboot After Install?

May 10, 2010

I have laptop ASUS X51RL with Intel pentium dual core inside processor. As mentioned here:I tried to install i386 FC12 on it. When the instalation was completed, there was a message to reboot. So did I, and while the BIOS was still loading, of course, removed the DVD in order not to repeat the instalation. Fedora started loading with the three varioants of the blue color bars and suddenly on the screenappeared a long message finishing with the words: "kernel panic - not syncing: fatal exception in interrupt " and that was all - the system stopped untillo there and never loaded For the last 2 days this is about my 12th attempt to get linux. Before I had tried about over 6 times with ubuntu, finishing the same way after the first reboot, 1 time knoppix and 2 times Debian. Only debian succeeded to load succesfully after its instaltion was complete, but I didnt linke it and a friend of mine strongly recommended me FC12. So what am I supposed to do??? I guarentee, my hard disc is not corruted as I read 1 hundred times on google, I had benn running windows 7 before I started trying to get linux and everything was OK... the install DVD is also OK, I tested it in the same beginning of the instalation and the test was successfull.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Screens - Grandr - Settings For Dual Monitors Lost At Restart

Jun 8, 2010

The 'Multiple Screens' tool, aka grandr, is very handy for setting up my dual monitors. But restarting my system restores the monitor setup to the (crummy) default settings. Is there a way to save these settings and make sure they are always applied when the OS boots? Putting these settings in my xorg.conf would be fine, but I'm not sure where or in what form the settings generated by grandr might be located, or if they're at all xorg.conf compatible.
