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

I have 2 ATI graphics cards and 4 identical Samsung LCDs (2xDVI on each card, no crossfire though the bridge is connected), and I am hoping to configure them in the following manner.

3 LCDs

Currently, LCD 1 and 2 work, however 3 and 4 are not recognised. I dual boot Windows 7 and all 4 LCDs work fine in this arrangement, so I think that rules any BIOS misconfiguration out. I am unsure if the fglrx drivers are registering for the second card.

Card is detected by CCC Not detected by Software Sources
