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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Two Screens And XRandR, Right Screen Shifted?

Sep 20, 2010

I am using OpenSuse 11.3 (64 bit) on my desktop and I have two (identical) screens connected to its on board Intel graphics chips. Both screens are detected and there is no problem when they are cloned, but if I want to have one screen right of the other (using the command xrandr --output VGA1 --right-of HDMA1, as the KDE settings manager never managed to have any effect), the right screen is shifted ca. 100 pixels to the left and on the right side of it I see the left side of the left screen.t seems both screens are detected if I type XRandR:

Code:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2560 x 1024, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 connected 1280x1024+1280+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 338mm x 270mm

Debian Multimedia :: How To Get Xrandr / Arandr To Detect Dual Monitor

Jan 29, 2016

I just switched from Ubuntu to Debian and I am having trouble doing something that I found easy to do with Ubuntu. I have a Radeon R9 graphics card from MSI with dual DVI ports and I'm trying to get xrandr/arandr to detect my dual monitors but it only detects one. I've installed all the drivers and even installed the "amdgpu" driver from the Ubuntu repository but still not detecting. What drivers am I missing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Start Gui (no Screens Found) / Terminal "dual Screen"

Dec 7, 2010

I've experienced 3 1/2 years of Ubuntu bliss. I have run into the first issue that I cannot solve using these forums, and I'm at my wit's end. Problem: I cannot start gdm (gnome?). I get the "Fatal server error: no screens found" error. Also, my terminal screen is duplicated on the top and bottom of the laptop monitor, indicating something gone terribly wrong.

When the problem started: immediately after running standard update to 2.6.32-26 (this time). Last time, it happened after running a standard update, but that was weeks ago. I did a complete reinstall (three times, including once to 10.1)

My system:
Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS (clean install + recent updates)
Kernel version 2.6.32-26
Also have 2.6.32-25. Neither one works in recovery mode, either.
Machine: Dell Inspiron 1420
Intel Core2 Duo
Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS

Fedora :: Ati Xrandr Dual Screen Weirdness

Mar 8, 2011

I just found some strange behaviour with xrandr. I've got a dual screen setup (both 1680x1050) on which I want to span my desktop. I'm using the ati (amd) proprietary driver from livna to do this. I edited my xorg.conf to include the 'Virtual' line under screen.

When I add this to the "Screen" section:

The driver breaks and I get a resolution of 1400x900 and still not the option to span my desktop.

When I change that to read Virtual 1680 2100

It all works fine but I have to have my desktops on top of each other.

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 :: Dual Screen - Gnome Panel On Both Screens?

Jan 28, 2010

I reinstalled and forgot how I added a panel to my second screen, cause when you add a panel you choose left right top or bottom, but no option for second screen... finally I added a new panel, then right click on the new panel> properties, then unchecked "expand" then was able to move the new panel to second monitor, then set to whatever side and recheck "expand" then it sticks to the second screen, then add to panel, and select window list, then all new windows will be shown on the appropriate panel/screen

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).

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 :: 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]....

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?

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.

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?

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

The problem is with this new 10.04 lts installation when I go to hook up an external monitor via the avg port and run xrandr to initialize the display, the laptop monitor panel becomes a garbled image and the television that is attached to the computer says no input. As of now I am stumped and open for assistance on this one.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XRandR Doesn't Detect DVI Output To TV?

Mar 25, 2010

I'm trying to hook up my TV to my MacBook1,1 laptop running the Lucid Lynx Beta. The TV is connected to the laptop via a mini-DVI to DVI-I adaptor, which is connected to a DVI-I to video adaptor, and this is connected to the TV via a component cable.

Under OS X, after plugging in the mini-DVI cable, the TV automatically becomes a secondary display for the laptop (extending the current screen), so from a hardware perspective everything seems ok. Under Ubuntu, plugging in the mini-DVI cable elicits no response from XRandR whatsoever (xrandr -q reports DVI1 disconnected both before and after). URandR and the regular "Detect Displays" button in the "Monitors" preference app do nothing. The laptop has an Intel GMA 950 chipset, and the Intel driver is running successfully (Compiz works fine). I have a clean xorg.conf (generated by X -configure), except for the addition of "Virtual 2048 2048" in one of the SubSections of the Screen section. I'd be happy to post the full xorg.conf if it would be useful.

So far I have tried xorg.conf tweaks, and I have followed instructions to manually tell xrandr to output to DVI1 as described in the comment by Marko Mikulicic here.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xorg.conf Not Setting Res And Xrandr Unreliable

Jan 6, 2010

I am setting up a display system that will not have a keyboard/mouse and automatically boots into gnome and starts up firefox to a display page. The page is optimized to a 720p resolution which I can set when we use a TV for the display, but is not an option if we use a monitor. I am trying to find a way to set the resolution to 720p automatically on boot up. I am always using 16x9 displays with a DVI connection (to HDMI on TVs)

I was able to get one monitor working by creating a script and setting it to load in the Startup Applications as shown:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
scnres="1280 720 60"
modeline=$(cvt -v $scnres | grep Modeline)
modeline=${modeline#Modeline }

Debian Multimedia :: Using Xrandr To Toggle Laptop Display

Jun 3, 2015

Background: I am running Debian 8 with the Xfce DE on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

When at home I will connect my laptop to an external display. I did the same while I was running Ubuntu; however, with Ubuntu I could activate my laptop display by simply disconnecting the external monitor. With Debian + Xfce, unplugging the external monitor leaves my laptop screen blank.

In order to activate my laptop display, I have to open Display settings, turn on laptop display -- which still leaves my laptop screen blank -- and then switch resolution: there are two listings for 1366x768 under resolution, and only the second one restores my laptop display. Please note that if I have both displays on at the same time the size of the output on my external monitor will be reduced to about the size of my laptop's display.

I would like the create a Bash script which can automatically switch between my displays. After some Googling it seems like xrandr is the tool I need for the job. However, I have been having trouble getting it to work.

I tried the command Code: Select allxrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --primary --output HDMI1 --off. This however just turns my external display off without turning on my laptop's display. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that LVDS1 has two modes at 1366x768; perhaps only one of them can actually display? I'm not sure, but anyways here's the output of xrandr:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
   1366x768      59.99*+
   1360x768      59.80    59.96 
   1024x768      60.00 
   800x600       60.32    56.25 

[Code] ....

Is there a way I can specify that xrandr should use the second 1366x768 mode?

I just realized that the second mode is, in fact, 1360x768 rather than 1366x768...

The good news is that I fixed my problem. It turns out that my backlight was not turning on, giving the appearance that my laptop screen was not displaying anything.
