Yes, X can use multiple drivers. Yours is a very similar setup as what I have. I have an NVIDIA 9800 GT with two monitors connected and an 2nd generation intel card with a single monitor. I don't see any problems with your xorg.conf. I suspect that you will need to create an xorg.conf if only to tell X to use both nvidia and intel drivers. My xorg.conf ...

Automatically move the launcher, depending on the active screen A possible solution is to automatically change the position of the launcher, depending on the current mouse-position: if it is on the left screen, move the launcher to left if it is on the right screen, move it to the bottom In the test I ran, it worked surprisingly smooth, and windows ...

The solution was to create a guest account, and play the video from this account.

I am also getting this issue with Intel integrated graphics on my Dell XPS 13 after upgrading to 16.04 LTS. Let's see if we can fix this together. Can you copy-pasta the output of the following terminal commands: sudo su *password for super user* lshw -c video Tell me what you get and if it's similar to my trouble maybe my solution attempt will work for ...

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 --...

I run 3x1920x1200 and often have to edit ~/.config/monitors.xml to manually set their order, and X/Y pos. *I have profiles for work and home...monitors.work.xml, monitors.home.xml

You can use gsettings for enabling and disabling monitor from going to sleep: Disable turning off screen gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 0 Enable turning off screen with 5 min delay gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 300

I also had the scaling issue. Here's how I patched it: Download the source and patch for the xserver-xorg-core package. mkdir src && cd src apt-get source xorg-server cd xorg-xserver-x.xx.x/randr wget https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=94929 > randr.patch Patch xrandr: patch -p1 < randr.patch At File to patch: type: ...

I was able to solve this using something similar to the second example posted on the Arch Wiki for NVidia cards - TwinView. Each monitor is plugged into a separate graphics card and I've enabled SLI Mosaic mode. I've also forced the refresh rates to 60 Hz for the moment, but may uncomment this and use a range to see if that works. I created a new file in /...

So I googled around a little more and after trying a few things I found that xrandr doesn't quite work well nvidia proprietary drivers, so I had to use : sudo nvidia-xconfig to generate a xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf I then googled around for the HorizSync and VertRefresh values for the monitor in question which I found to be: HorizSync 30 - 83 ...

I cannot see a mechanism to choose a different location for a single launcher (e.g Unity) on different monitors. Given the problem of real-estate (limited horizontal), I can see that placing a launcher at the bottom of the screen and auto-hiding it would be a solution. In Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, you can move the Launcher to the bottom, but I realise this ...

No. Note that as of date of last testing (2014, xcalib version 0.8) xcalib has not been able to invert the colors on all monitors in a multi-monitor setup, because all monitors are presented by the X11 server as a single screen. Thus this limitation is coming from the X11 server. xrandr-invert-colors does not have this limitation, because it ...

Just found out how to fix it, at least until I reboot, if anyone knows how to make this permanent let me know, for now I run a script on startup. xrandr --output HDMI-0 --set underscan on
