Not an error, per se, more of an observation. Since upgrading to 12.04, I have found and solved some interesting problems. Given my complete lack of Ubuntu knowledge, this has indeed made me feel more than a little cocky. However, the one (!) thing I cannot figure out is the whole Dual Monitor setup.
Anyway, the blah bit... Fujitsu Siemens Amilo 3530, ATI Radeon 3200 HD Series, 4GB RAM 1TB HDD and so on, generic HDMI monitor. Got the GNOME fglrx loaded with the kosher latest ATI driver (but not the post update one, that one just will not activate)
Now, in 11.10, it just wouldn't work, at all, not even when tempted with tasty treats and promises of great pleasure. Still, I persisted and, when I noticed the 2nd Monitor working with the 12.04 Try Out DVD, I went for it.
After getting 12.04 running, the HDMI still shows nothing but blue screen on the telly, telling me 'No Signal". On VGA, if I attempt to set it as a second monitor, I get two errors:
The selected configuration could not be applied
required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(2880, 900), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1600, 1600)
Then, click Close and you get the following:
GDBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._gnome_2drr_2derror_2dquark.Code3: required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(2880, 900), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1600, 1600)
But, if I mirror the display, it works on the monitor, no problem.
So, the fact that it is not working IS NOT MY FAULT!
Any one get any suggestions?
