Ubuntu won't detect my external monitor. I'm running Ubuntu on a Lenovo ThinkPad W530 with NVIDIA Corporation GK107GLM [Quadro K1000M]. I've been told to run
nvidia-settings, but When I try running it, I get the following:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server.
When I do so, I get a 640x480 resolution. Additionally, when I run
nvidia-settings again, I get the same error message.
What can I do to fix this?
UPDATE: I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 and it works now.
