Im new to xrandr tool and configuring X on linux - I allways used the terminal. Im trying to setup my linux server into xbmc machine. The VGA worked from the start but im having problem with DVI (so i can use it latter as DVI->HDMI). Im pluging my monitor into DVI, but theres nothing. Display setup only detect one monitor (the VGA). Xrandr only see VGA. The mobo is Intel DQ35JOE. The sad part is the DVI work flawless on Windows.

There's nothing in BIOS what would prevent it from working. I tried to install Intel drivers from 01.page but there are only for 13.04 and use some deprecated packages.

X.org(x.org/wiki/IntelGraphicsDriver) Is say that DualLink DVI is not supported, and the DVI on my mobo is indeed DL DVI-D. Is that the case (or will be after plugin DVI->HDMI which is DL DVI-D ? –  Michal Sapsa Dec 24 '13 at 12:38
