Had the same issue, solved by installing the correct video driver, so for my NC10 I did: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

I was unable to solve this via software but I did find hardware that made everything work as desired. I purchased a video splitter box (this one for reference - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CZAJUCG) & it has solved my problem. Apparently a splitter cable just confuses the computer as to which display identification to believe where a video ...

If you have an NVIDIA graphics card, you can do this rather easily in NVIDIA X Server Settings. Under X Server Display Configuration, select a monitor and for its position, select "Same as" and then the name of your monitor, for example "ViewSonic VX2552 Series". Fortunately for me, my monitor and TV are the same resolution!

You should install the proper display drivers. Enter in System Configuration -> Software and updates, in the Additional drivers tab you should see a list with some Intel-GPU drivers (these used to be privatives). Choose the most recent one and apply changes. Restart and you should be able to choose your screen resolution.

For some (unknown) reason your Benq monitor is identified as secondary display. Check the 'Primary Display' box and do 'Identify Display' command again. Edit: Set Benq as primary, then select the other (non-existent) monitor and uncheck 'Use this display' option. Then reboot, just to make sure Ubuntu understood everything correctly. This will force Ubuntu ...

The fix that worked for me right away was: Start your machine and log in. Then change to tty1 by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and log in on tty1. Then enter sudo rm -rf ~/.config Then restart your computer by entering sudo reboot.

Create a .desktop file in the /etc/xdg/autostart folder. Any .desktop file in that folder will be started as it is a system wide used folder that all users existing and new upon logging in will have applications start from. No need to create separate startup applications / links / shortcuts for each user. More information can be found here: FreeDesktop.Org/...

I got linux mint 18(beta) with cinnamon to work on my razer blade 2016. It works fine except for suspend. I can watch youtube/twitch for more than 3 hours without changing any settings. AFAIK, people have not figured out a perfect soln for the suspend. Personally, I set my laptop to do nothing when lid closed. As for the nvidia driver, since I use linux for ...

I would possibly write a short bash script to include both. You have to know your displays' and sinks' names prior to writing it. To see your displays use xrandr -q command, to find your sinks use pacmd list-sinks command The script #!/bin/bash function changes { xrandr --output yourpcdisplay --same-as 2nddisplayname pacmd set-default-sink "sinkname" } #...

I've had a similar problem. I wasn't able to get 2560x1600 from HP ZDisplay while connected with VGA, Mini DisplayPort/HDMI or Mini DisplayPort/HDMI + HDMI/HDMI cables. I've solved it by buying a Mini DisplayPort/DisplayPort cable with a declared support for 2560x1600 and using it.
