My case may not be similar to yours but I post my solution here hoping it helps other people. I ran: xrandr --verbose I was not able to change the mode to 1080p using xrandr "--mode 1920x1080 --rate 60" because it has two flavors, 1080p and 1080i, and 1080i is by default stupidly preferred. DFP5 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0xa1) normal (normal left ...

I've cracked it :) By accident I installed kernel 3.14.0-031400 rebooted and vCenter console now shows my desktops correctly. I downloaded this version quite by accident but glad I did as the latest version (3.16.1Utopic) doesn't fix the issue. I'm going to leave it at this for the time being as I have lots of learning and work to do before I can fully move ...

I'm not sure this will be helpful to you since it is VMWare Wrokstation experience, not server. However, I had 1) difficulty getting the display to display at the right size and 2) getting folder shares to the host to work. There was a fix for #1 but I could not get it to stick after reboot. for #2 it seemed I needed a newer version of VMWare but did not ...

assuming you have started your machine with X running (but not visible on any screen), you can do the following: Go to the console with Ctrl+F1 and log in Set your display variable export DISPLAY=:0 Execute xrandr and check output Try to reactivate one of the connected displays with xrandr --output LVDS-0 --auto (where LVDS-0 is my built-in laptop ...

Try updating VirtualBox and re-installing the guest additions drivers.

I do not know if I got it right. Is the resolution problem related to external display? If it is maybe this will help: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=945465

You may still need to install the "bumblebee" package to manage the Optimus GPU properly, even if you don't use the NVidia side of it. I have a ThinkPad T410s with Optimus graphics that refuses to do anything properly despite having the BIOS configured to use the Intel GPU only, until I installed Bumblebee. Now it's happy.

If I'm interpreting correctly, the image is stretched beyond the bounds of your TV. The menu system of you TV should have controls to adjust the position and size of the image.

Yes it is possible, BUT only with a lot of configuration and setting up servers. I tried it myself some time ago but it didn't work out. I found a good alternative called Synergy. With synergy you could use one mouse and keyboard (including copy-and-paste) on all of your PC's.

While this doesn't directly answer your question, you might want to consider a program called Synergy. It allows you to use one mouse/keyboard across all three computers. That way you can still take advantage of the cpu power on the laptops instead of just using them as a remote display. Imagine running a torrent client on a laptop along with a browser to ...

Things have changed a lot since Ubuntu 11.10 which I read you are running. Please consider upgrading to 12.04 or 14.04, where multi monitor setups work quite nicely:

So I'm not exactly sure why this worked, but I managed to fix the problem. The external monitor is hooked up to my Lenovo Thinkpad X220 laptop, and on it there is an option for changing which screen is showing what. (Fn + F7) I pressed this by accident, and it switched to both of the screens showing the same thing. When I pressed it again, the resolution on ...

In addition to the existing answers, to display the screenshot in ASCII in the terminal: xwd -root -display :0 | convert - jpg:- | jp2a - --colors (Requires x11-apps for xwd, imagemagick for convert and jp2a.)

You can try a utility called Arandr. I didn't test, of course, the Oculus Rift with this tool. But the program helped in cases when Ubuntu didn't allow achieving desired configuration by inbuilt stuff sudo apt-get install arandr
