Just a heads up, I'm brand new to ubuntu and linux as a whole, so go easy on me.
I just installed ubuntu 13.04 on my Thinkpad T430. A few bumps along the way, but I'm learning this new system quickly.
I have two external monitors plugged in through the dock I have for the laptop, plus a USB-to-DVI adapter that is functioning properly. However, when I dock my laptop, the laptop monitor itself shuts off and I only get the 3 external. I'd like to have all four monitors working at once.
When I go into Display under System Settings, and turn on the laptop monitor, I get a timeout error.
Normally I would say this is a video card problem, but last week I was running 12.04 and everything was working properly. I did clean reinstall.
Hopefully you guys can help me out, thanks!
Super + P and/or FN + F7 (Monitor Hotkey) cycles between the following:
- Laptop monitor only
- Mirrored on external monitors (laptop monitor is off)
- 3 External monitors extended view (laptop monitor is off)
In Additional Drivers, it only says "no proprietary drivers in use". There are no options in the window to choose any different drivers, and there are none listed.
