Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.
Asus "T91mt" (resolution 1024x600).
External monitor 17" VGA 1280x1024.
Ubuntu 12.04.1.
GMA500.

I have solved a common gma500 issue of resolution own display, but i can't connect external monitor correctly.
The picture of external monitor is shown on 75% field.
I mean i can see whole picture of desktop on 75% filed of view only, but other 25% is black color or plume(tail) of console.


Addition info:

  • xrandr does not see second screen (only default).
  • I have modified grub file for optimization memory and resolution(1024x600) both at wiki-Poulsbo and it did not help.
  • My new xorg.conf is:
