I just got a new computer (W520, Graphics card nVidia GF106 [Quadro 2000]) and installed ubuntu on it using wubi. I have everything working, so I wanted to set it up to be able to use two monitors with an extended screen. I figured I had to edit Xorg.conf, but the file didnt exist. So I tried to create it by booting in recovery mode, and executing
but I am getting these errors:
(EE) Failed to load module "vmwgfx" (module does not exist, 0) (EE) vmware: Please ignore the above warnings about not being able to load module/driver vmwgfx (++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new" (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" (EE) [drm] No DRICreatedPCIBusID symbol Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed. ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log
Any idea how I can get Xorg -configure to work, so that I can have an xorg.conf file that I can edit to enable twinview?
Another way I could ask the same question to solve this problem is, why can't I boot with an xorg.conf file generated by nvidia-xconfig? Is there something in the generated xorg.conf file that might need editing?
So it seems like I have bigger issues. I have an nVidia Optimus technology which seems like it precludes me from running Unity 3d. At least all of the information I can find on it says that. This is from forums as recent as January of this year. Has there been any new developments? Can I have dual monitors while running unity 2d?
I am going to ask another question because this problem seems to be a symptom of my larger issue.
