It will take a background script to keep track of whether the second monitor is connected or not. The script below checks every five seconds if that is the case, and sets the wallpaper accordingly. The script also remembers the set wallpaper for the two states (connected/disconnected) in a hidden file. The file is automatically updated if you change the ...

It's probably a hardware problem, not a software problem, and the two problems in your question are probably related. When a computer fan gets old it wears out and the fan blades aren't mounted snugly on the bearings. This causes the fan to make noise and friction causes the fan to slow down, sometimes to less than half of its normal operating speed. The ...

Another possibility is that it is a software issue. I had the same thing on my laptop. When it happened, I opened "System Monitor" and saw that one process was using 2GB ram and 100% of one core. What can I do to diagnose this? When it happens again, open the system monitor and check if some process is using a lot of ram or cpu. If this is the case, it is ...

Try this: xrandr --output eDPI1 --mode 1024x768 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output HDMI2 --mode 1366x768 --pos 1024x384 --rotate normal

What happens Your assumption that the downloaded files "landed" in the "blind" area is correct: You can get the icons position with the command: gvfs-info <item> This outputs the coordinates 64,1382 (x/y), which makes clear the icon is positioned below the left screen (1382 > 1080). This is most likely the result of a bug. The script below can be ...

It looks like you're trying to use three monitors on one card which, as far as I know, isn't possible. Like you're experiencing, the third monitor will be recognized, but trying to enable it either won't work, or it will disable the non-main (secondary) monitor. It's not a driver problem or a problem with Ubuntu, it's just not possible.

I can suggest two possible options: Using the special function key on your keyboard (e.g. Fn+F8) to switch between using one or the other or both Session Menu > System Settings > Hardware / Displays

You need to look at xrandr command May be something like: xrandr --output SCREEN1 --output SCREEN2 --output SCREEN3 --same-as SCREEN2 where SCREEN3 mirrors SCREEN2. Replace SCREEN1, SCREEN2, SCREEN3 with the appropriate name that you get with the xrandr command (without any option). For example, LDVS1, HDMI1, VGA1, etc ...

The issue appears to be lack of MST support in the Linux kernel. Upgrading to Ubuntu 15.04 with kernel 3.19 fixed the issue for me, but only after I installed the proprietary nvidia drivers.

Welcome to Ubuntu with systemd rather than with upstart. This is systemd bug #76267. Lennart Poettering's initial explanation was:The [nvidia] binary driver does not implement the DRM interfaces in /sys. This means we cannot detect how many displays are connected and then we decide not to handle the lid switch since we cannot be sure about whether the ...

I made my self a little script to switch screens (I've two identical LCD in splitscreen vs one Beamer so I changed the script to match your case) #!/bin/bash if [[ $(xrandr | grep "DFP3 connected") ]]; then xrandr --output DFP2 --mode 1920x1080 --output DFP3 --off else xrandr --output DFP3 --mode 1440x900 --output DFP2 --off fi Just save this as ...

For anyone still wondering on this topic: the xrandr and x11vnc clip does work; to enable the mouse to get over there you need to use the panning argument to set the mouse tracking area: xrandr --fb 2560x1024 --output LVDS1 --panning 1280x1024+0+0/2560x1024+0+0 Then when running xvnc use: x11vnc -clip 1280x1024+1281+0 -nocursorshape -nocursorpos That ...

I've got a T540p notebook with docking station and Linux Mint 17 based on 14.04 LTS with 3.19 kernel and latest intel drivers together with an Asus 4k display which supports a resolution up to 3840x2160. If the display is connected directly with the notebook via the mini DisplayPort connector all is working fine. If the display is connected with the ...

I finally have this working in a repeatable way. I have the w540, ultra docking station and 3 displays (monitors are all the same brand). I have the DVI and VGA from the docking station, and then the VGA port on the laptop itself. The big change for me is that if I leave the lid open and then hit F7, it all works smoothly. If I close the lid it causes lag. ...

I used NoMachine NX for a long time which worked well for me. The server run on a Ubuntu Server and I was able to connect from both Windows and Linux. According to this article, the previous version 3.5 (current is 4.x) already supported multiple monitors what is said to be improved in 4.x. If this is what you are looking for, you could give it a try as ...
