The ASROCK IMB-150 has a lvds connector on the board, with no monitor connected it defaults to the LVDS, despite LVDS being disabled in BIOS. Disabling the LVDS and enabling the VGA port forced the output out the correct video port. adding consoleblank=0 solved a problem with the console not returning after the screen was blanked. /etc/default/grub ...

Thanks. Jacob's solution is just what I was looking for. <screen> is meant to replace the specific input that you need to provide to xrandr. To find out what that name of the input is, look at the first acronym that appears just before the list of numbers when you run xandr. In my case these were LVDS1 and VGA1 (the first is my laptop, the second ...

Looks like you need a custom modeline for your display (Basically a custom "output"). Either that or your drivers aren't working properly... I had this issue with an old monitor and a custom modeline sorted it right away :P You can add the native resolution modeline (1920x1080_60.00?) and then you should be able to switch to it, any other resolutions will ...

You need to look at xrandr command May be something like: xrandr --output SCREEN1 --output SCREEN2 --output SCREEN3 --same-as SCREEN2 where SCREEN3 mirrors SCREEN2. Replace SCREEN1, SCREEN2, SCREEN3 with the appropriate name that you get with the xrandr command (without any option). For example, LDVS1, HDMI1, VGA1, etc ...

It could have something to do with your drivers. Open the dash and search for Proprietary Driver and see if you have to update your drivers for the Intel Graphics card

Hmm... here's screenshot of XFCE's display properties from my home system with two equal monitors. When I had Benq 24" and LG 19", there also weren't any problem for using two monitors with different resolutions. Left (primary) connected with HDMI, and secondary connected with DVI. XFCE: 4.12, Ubuntu: 14.04.2 (originally in Russian, I added English ...

Post installation and removal nvidia, I noticed a strange(and a good one at that) behaviour. And that its that the GUI response in second monitor has become much improved. And I also noticed that the xorg.conf has a different setting, pasting it for your reference, jpvel@jpvel-M11xR3:~/Downloads$ sudo cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.04192015 Section ...

I've gotten this, too, when I first install Chrome. The fix for me was to (surprisingly) leave it maximized, close it, the reopen it.

Try this: Open System Settings and go into Color. From here, click Add Profile. Select the Best RGB profile and click Add. Hopefully, a window will come up asking you to download extra packages. Let it install them. Back inside the Color settings, select your monitor and click Calibrate....

The KDE desktop uses quite a lot of effects (transparency, glowing things, blur etc). You should be able to speed up login by disabling the Login splash screen, as well as extra effect under 'Desktop Effects' > 'All Effects', extra services under 'Startup and Shutdown' > 'Seervice Manager', and by reducing resource usage under 'Application Apperance' > ...

I had this problem with Ubuntu 12.04 on my netbook (1024x600 screen). I "solved it" (really worked around it) by making sure that all windows start out maximized. This helps, because maximized windows that are bigger than the screen, show the scroll bars. And, if you can access the scroll bars, you can thereby reach all parts of the window. To do this, ...

Even though this is a few years old, I see there is no accepted answer. I have a Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 card that drives three monitors. My monitors are VGA 1440x900, HDMI 1680x1050, and VGA 1440x900. The ports are VGA, HDMI, and DVI. Therefore, for the DVI port I use an adapter. You would need to use the open source xorg drivers for best results. No ...

RandR is an extension to the X11 server that is used to communicate the configuration of outputs between the server's clients (= applications) and the graphics driver. Most applications don't actually speak the protocol themselves, but instead use a library called libXrandR. FakeXRandR replaces this library with one that still asks the graphics driver for ...

Displays have an arrangement. You can view and change it by launcher "Displays" from the dash. By moving your cursor over the edge of an display the other display is on you move it between the displays. To be better able to do this, disable "Sticky edges" right in the display settings which you already opened.

There seems to be a (bad) fix for this problem as described here The problem seems not to appear by using the old UXA hardware acceleration for for the Intel graphic cards. Edit the following section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file such that AccelMethod is set to "uxa" or create the file if it does not yet exist: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel ...

So after some experiments and with small luck i found out that i had to regenerate my xorg.conf file using command: sudo nvidia-xconfig. after that restart lightdm and thats it ;) additionally in display settings(not nvidia-settings) you probably will have to choose that all is align by laptop screen

I had the same problem, found a workaround here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2149791. xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --left-of HDMI1 --output HDMI1 --auto --scale 1.0001x1.0001 (Adjust outputs accordingly) The important thing is to change the scale of your output. Beats me why this works, I hope they'll come up with a proper fix.
