"Settings manager" -> "Session and Startup" -> "Application Autostart" register -> add following command: xrandr --output HDMI-0 --primary specify title yourself so you recognize if changed later on.

As the above comments are saying, the problem is most likely due to the TV and not the driver. However, if you have a Sharp Aquos TV, "Dot by Dot" mode might not be available in the menu as Pakman mentioned; I couldn't find an option for enabling "Dot by Dot" mode anywhere. Instead, I solved the problem by discovering that my remote has a dedicated "Wide ...

Light DM is is the process that handles the display. You could try and use Alt + PrtScr/SysReq + K for resetting the display in Ubuntu. I hope this works in Xubuntu too. The instructions on how to restart the Xserver may help you.

This is not a driver issue. Its just that you have got to make xrandr changes permanent. I just had a similar problem and solved it by the method shown here . I will explain it below. First, create a shell script with the commands you have given in your description as shown below:- #!bin/sh xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 ...

I added couple more lines, second run of the script will turn screen back to normal and enable the touchpad, tested with Ideapad 2 Pro. By the way I did put launcher for the script on the side panel HowTo: new launcher. Accelerometer is not yet supported in the kernel, but maybe something is coming on next release. #!/bin/bash # This script rotates ...

Just open the Displays settings and turn off the laptop display (Built-in Display on the picture below). If you unplug your external monitor it will come back again. And of course if the HDMI monitor is re-plugged, the laptop display will turn off as expected.

Not sure if this is related but I had a similar problem with lenovo w500 laptop and red hat. My problem was that graphics adaptor has a bios option to conserve battery but only works in windows. Had to enable offboard graphics adaptor full to get it to work. very difficult to tell if this applies to you. Might try posting more info from system log and ...

You have the same problem as I and others. It seems that the problem is the ultra dock and the hardware. A short answer is that Lenovo uses MST (Multi stream) DP on the dock. If you look at my thread at Linuxquestions you will get some more info. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-laptop-and-netbook-25/dual-monitor-not-cloned-please-4175499316/ ...

I resolved this issue by using an external graphics adapter of Nvidia. The matrox g200 on-board display adapter seems to have issues with handling websites high content of javascripts and dynamic webpages. One point I learned from this experience was, server motherboards would require Graphics adapters if they are to server as terminal servers in linux ...

I do not know if the scaling uses the xrandr mechanism. If yes, issue in the terminal: xrandr --output LVDS1 --scale 1x1 substituting LSVD1 with the name of your active display obtained by running xrandr --current. More info in this other answer.

It is possible by using xrandr util First execute xrandr $ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767 eDP1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 282mm x 165mm 1920x1080 60.0*+ 59.9 40.0 1680x1050 60.0 59.9 1600x1024 60.2 1400x1050 60.0 ...

Ah. I found it. A zombie-like stray copy of xfce4-display-settings was stuck somehow. I found it (via ps axf) and killed it, and the thing went away.

The problem seems to be that you are not able to see/control the lower part of the "Display settings". There is a workaround to move the lower part on top. For this, go to System settings -> Display and then right-click on the window bar on top and click on "Move". Do not move your mouse after clicking on "Move", otherwise the keyboard is not used for ...

Excellent question. I'm planning to update to 14.04 soon, and as far as I can tell right now, nvidia-prime is still a step backwards. Luckily, bumblebee is still available in the repo and the screenclone patch should be part of the regular driver.

Errors like this mean that you are running a program that needs a graphical display and it can't find one. GUI programs connect to the display defined by the $DISPLAY environmental variable. The general format of the error is Could not open display $DISPLAY Since, in your case, the error says (null), this means that $DISPLAY is not set. You therefore need ...

I am not sure if this answers your question. But i find nvidia-prime could be a welcome relief to the crowd who have an nvidia card with optimus , and have no way to switch between an optimus setting/ non optimus setting like you can . In case of my laptop , which is the Dell XPS 15 L502X, i cannot switch modes in BIOS , and nvidia-prime let me use my ...

Does your laptop have a "Function + ? (key with small picture of a monitor or screen)? Normally they are included and used for toggling between displays. on some models they are tied into the BIOS and their functionis independant of the OS.Take alook and let us know.
