Some system updates came out today, and I applied those using Synaptic Package Manager. After the update and another reboot, the dual-monitor system is working again. I don't see anything in the updates that appear to have anything to do with display, but my guess is that maybe running the updates flushed out whatever the disconnect was that was keeping the ...

I posted the bug to gdm developers and got the tip to use static conf. /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/21-intel.conf Contents: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "monitor-eDP1" "eDP1" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "eDP1" Modeline "1920x1080" 172.80 1920 2040 2248 2576 1080 ...

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 ...

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 ...

As I suspected, this was no fluke: Your monitors.xml contained an erroneous configuration without HDMI. Here is the corrected version that only contains one single configuration (the original that worked without any problems) Now, replace your existing version with my corrected one keep a back-up of the corrected just in case this ever happens again... ...

RandR is an extension to the X11 server that is used to communicate the configuration of outputs between the server's clients (= applications) and the graphics driver. Most applications don't actually speak the protocol themselves, but instead use a library called libXrandR. FakeXRandR replaces this library with one that still asks the graphics driver for ...

Solved! I thought that by adding a wallpaper (3840x2160) that wasn't the exact same size as my dual monitor set-up (3840x1080), Ubuntu would have adjusted it, but it didn't. So I search for 3840x1080 wallpapers, spanned it in the Tweak Tool panel and now it works. But still it confuses me that when I was in Activities or Show Application the wallpaper was ...

What you usually need to do in these situations is adding a small break in the command after login. Add this to your Startup Applications: /bin/bash -c "sleep 15&&xrandr --output DFP10 --rotate left && xrandr --output DFP11 --right-of DFP10" (If that is the normally working command) The reason is that most likely the command is performed ...

It is possible but very hard to accomplish, firstly you are able to setup multiple monitors as a single large monitor using Xinerama, now for the hard part, you need a video capture card that is compatible with Linux, Blackmagic cards are the most recognised brand which has support for Linux, however you need to compile the DeckLink SDK and develop a setup ...

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 ...

Post installation and removal nvidia, I noticed a strange(and a good one at that) behaviour. And that its that the GUI response in second monitor has become much improved. And I also noticed that the xorg.conf has a different setting, pasting it for your reference, jpvel@jpvel-M11xR3:~/Downloads$ sudo cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.04192015 Section ...
