I installed for the first time Linux and it's a great move for me. Xubuntu came out of the box with almost everything working perfectly.

I have a problem though, when I try to see the image from the screen onto the tv, the image is moving continuous and very fast to the left(on tv).

I tried different software to output the image in different resolutions. I tried to make for S-video output, custom resolutions and refresh rates in the terminal, but the image is still moving(in windows was ok, but don't wanna go back).

My laptop:Asus F3u,

I can connect to TV only through S-video. Please help.

PS: if you know a good website with tutorials for using the terminal and Xubuntu in general, please share.
