Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm not an expert in Linux but I'm currently try to learn it myself. Unfortunately I'm stuck here.

So, I'm using Ubuntu 64-bit ( with Unity desktop ) on a laptop.

I get stuck when I try to plug another screen to run Linux in dual screen mode.I configured display( with user-friendly control panel : settings->display ) in dual boot mode and when I want to apply I get this error message :

La configuration d'affichage sélectionnée ne peut pas être appliquée.
la taille virtuelle demandée n'est pas adaptée à la taille disponible : demande=(2800, 900), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1440, 1440)

I'm french and so is my Linux.

My graphic card is Mobility Radeon HD 5430 Series, so I have downloaded and installed last drivers from ATI web site but it does not resolve my problem.

I even tried searching on Google with my error message and tried the methods listed but it could not solve the problem.

Any help will be appreciated.

Just tell me if you need more information.

Thank you.

Please add the version of ubuntu as well. –  Shagun Nov 19 '12 at 9:15
    
Try to use the ATI / AMD Tool that comes with the driver you have installed. I only have used NVIDIA Cards with Ubuntu, but the Nvidia sometimes works better for me ... –  wolfv Nov 19 '12 at 9:24

it's me who open this subject some days ago, I have just change my account during this time.

I was very busy during this period, and I was not coming back on this page to see your propositions...

So today I have tried to use additional drivers. When I open additional drivers window, there is two of this which are proposed ( sorry it's French ) :

  • Pilote propriétaire ATI/AMD pour carte graphique FGLRX.
  • Pilotes graphiques FGLRX propriétaires ATI/AMD (mises à jour postérieures à la sortie d'Ubuntu)

I succeed to install the first one but it does not resolve my problem.

When I try to install the second one, I got an error and system tell me to show /var/log/jockey.log for more details. And it disable the first driver.

like log is very fat and this message is limited to 30000 characters I post it in 2 parts :

When you open your system connect that to internet and open 'Additional Drivers' application.....It shows the available drivers for system hardware ........ Install from there and restart your system.......

hello, I profite to be on windows and to have access to my michael luis account to let you a comment. I have tried your solution and alert that not fixing my problem but I was not using this account but my tyd01 account.
