I would like to extend my current laptop screen on a TV using a HDMI cable. Even if I found several topics talking about that, none of them gave a clear solution, and they were where quite outdated. Furthermore, I know that the use of HDMI for a second screen with Optimus technology caused several troubles even in the Bumblebee project.
Needless to say that, sadly, this extended screen works in plug and play due to the updated proprietary drivers on Windows. But I really want to find out a solution on my Ubuntu 13.04, and I hope somebody can help me with this.
My setup is as follow:
>> lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030\]' 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0126] (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 540M] [10de:0df4] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
What would you suggest me to start with and solve this issue?
