To make it work, I change HDMI signal from RAW to EXPAND and DisplayPort 1.1a to 1.2. Now I can start Ubuntu without any monitor connected and left rotation is ok after switch it on and off. Can someone could explain me this ...

You display adapter (nvidia) seems not receiving the DDC/CI data from the new screen. As: I can see from it LG 25UM65-P Specification Sheet it should support that.

This morning I decided to try it again. And. It. Just. Worked. I have no freaking idea why it works now. I tried it several times over the past weeks and today suddenly it worked. Perhaps there was an update that fixed my problem? Whatever, I'm happy I have my big monitor back :)

Is it a laptop you're on? If so, sometimes there is a keyboard shortcut to switch between display ports. On my laptop it's FN(Located bottom left of keyboard) + F10. Whichever key it is will most likely have an icon on it of a monitor and laptop side by side with a line in between. Turns out it's FN+F7 according to the instructions of your laptop. http://...

I can't get gsettings to change the brightness on my laptop running Ubuntu 16.06, but I can change the brightness by storing a value in /sys/class/backlight/device-name/brightness where device-name is one of the video devices listed in /sys/class/backlight. In each of these directories there is a max_brightness file. To write to these files you will need to ...

Have you tried the left-most button in the Remmina interface? When you hover your mouse over it, it says "Resize the window to fit in remote resolution". I'd love to show you a screenshot of it, but I don't have the reputation to add images. :P I have Remmina v1.1.2 and it works fine when accessing a Mac.

As mentioned in the comment above regarding the missing letters link, I have this specific problem (on 16.04, usually after returning from suspend), and so far, using unity/gnome tweak and switching fonts to greyscale anti-aliasing is working: http://askubuntu.com/a/633435/172307

If I made no typo, the command: xrandr --output eDP1 --pos 0x0 --output DP1-3 --pos 1920x0 --rotate left --output HDMI1 --pos 3000x0 should set up the screens like in the image (please try first). To make it stick on next login, add to startup applications: /bin/bash -c "sleep 15 && xrandr --output eDP1 --pos 0x0 --output DP1-3 --pos 1920x0 --...

You are pushing the limits of VGA at that resolution , it would be better to use HDMI or display port if you can.

So here is the new xrandr results,hoping you would be able to see what is still wrong. xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192 LVDS-1 connected primary 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 367mm x ...

On newmode, 1280x1024_60.00 is enclosed in double quotes, whereas on addmode and output it isn't. Use double quotes on those two commands too. At least, this is the correct syntax. An additional problem is that you are trying to add a mode to a disconnected port "VGA-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)" which won't work. The port ...

TL;DR Use: xbacklight ddccontrol redshift xgamma Backlight vs pixel values First and most importantly, if at all possible adjust the display backlight, rather than using software correction of pixel values. If you dim the backlight you still get full or near-full dynamic range, giving you a clearer, "deeper" image that tends to be more readable. ...
