For whatever reason, my other monitor can't be used unless I suspend the system before I login. Every time I suspend, the monitor is able to work as an extended display (after I configure the settings). If I don't suspend, then the monitor will not function at all. It would be nice if I didn't have to suspend and configure the settings every time I want to ...

Posting some screen shots would have been very helpful. But from what I can tell from your description it seems like you are experiencing this particular bug. From comment #28 under that link they recognized this is probably due to the SNA (Sandybridge's New Acceleration) not being fully functional. Basically you will have to switch to UXA (Unified ...

It's maybe related to the GPU manager. It should be mentionned in the log file /var/log/gpu-manager.log. If so, try commenting out the first 4 lines of the file /etc/init/gpu-manager.conf. #start on (starting lightdm # or starting kdm # or starting xdm # or starting lxdm) task exec gpu-manager --log /var/log/gpu-manager.log

You can reset nautilus by deleting its config file. First backup config: $ mv ~/.config/nautilus ~/.config/nautilus_old $ mv ~/.gconf/apps/nautilus ~/.gconf/apps/nautilus_old Then reeboot and if it works then you can delete the backup files. Otherwise just copy them back to restore the current state.

Please check out this: Kubuntu 15.04 nvidia optimus. This should help you get everythihg working very smoothly with docking/undocking as well. /edit Unless I am mistaken and your laptop does only have the Intel, and not the Nvidia as well. In which case I might be of no help for you.

Does the monitor get correctly identified in System Settings > Screen Display? There is also a scale option there in Ubuntu 15.04, I don't remember if that was there in earlier releases. Failing that, I can't say this will definitely solve your problem, but I know you can alter screen geometry with xrandr which I had to do with Crunchbang in a virtual ...

@Peter: This has nothing to do with windows being better. It's most likely a hardware issue of the monitor. The powersupply is going bad and no longer provides the voltage or current to keep the PNP signal that provides the information at the correct level, thus the video card can't 'hear' it clearly anylonger, that on it's turn decides to conclude that ...
