I have recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my Asus EEE PC 1015bx. I am a true novice with regards to Ubuntu.
I started running Ubuntu via usb stick but this seemed to stall often; I think that this has to do with the fact that all is run within RAM, of which this computer only holds 1 Gbyte. When running via usb stick, I had a secondary monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 191T) connected and this seemed to work fine. The system automatically detected this and set the resolution and I was able to use both this and the laptop's monitors independently.
After installing Ubuntu on the hard drive alongside with Windows 7, I cannot get this to work anymore.
The system will let me mirror the monitors but when attempting to set the external monitor up as secondary, I am met with an error message that translates to something like "The chosen display configuration could not be used - the virtual size does not correspond to the available sizes:
Requested=(2304, 1024), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1280, 1280)" followed by another error message that says something like "
GDBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._gnome_2drr_2derror_2dquark.Code3: requested virtuel size does not correspond to the available size: Requested=(2304, 1024), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1280, 1280)".
I have read something somewhere regarding returning to the native driver. It would make sence that the usb setup would use this native driver but that the installation has updated to one containing errors.
I appreciate all the help I can get.
