I'm using a XPS 13" (2015) and the same docking station as you linked to. I was mainly interested in a dual monitor solution with the added benefit of more USB ports. What you've probably read on this forum and other places is that USB 3.0 support on Linux is not optimal. I've tested the dock on Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10, not 15.04 To sum my situation up: The ...

The solution is about adding custom edid.bin monitor file to xorg.conf you can doing that by following this steps. Before you do anything unplug DVI cable and plug the VGA cable so you can get the property edid file for your monitor. But if you don't have VGA cable then use windows for dumping the file. first of all you have to install NVIDIA driver: ...

Take a "snapshot" of the window arrangement and restore it The script below can be used to get the current window positions of all "normal" windows (run with the argument -get), or restore the last window arrangement (run with the argument -restore). As explained here, using wmctrl i.c.w. Unity has some issues. If it is satisfying in your situation is to ...

If you install wmctrl you can use "wmctrl -Gl" to get a listing of all windows with their current positions and sizes. You could then use this information in step 4 to call wmctrl with the -e option to restore the size and position. For example: wmctrl -ir <id> -e 0,<x>,<y>,<w>,<h>

i think you need to install drivers for AMD ATI Radeon. Search AMD ATI Radeon and install the driver from their website. Your computer came with preinstalled Windows and Graphics card driver. But when you install ubuntu, it doesn't know you have a graphics card so you need to install the driver. I had to do the same thing with mine but with nvidia graphics ...

I've had the same problem for months and even downgraded to 14.04.2 to see if that would help with Nvidia 331-updates. After a bit of research I found a bug on launchpad and the [fix] (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1382462/comments/35) suggested here sorted it for me at last (Asus N56VM with Nvidia 630M/Intel). Phew! [Install] ...

Open Additional Driver , then try to use X.org X server. Or if you already use that you can switch to a new driver corresponding to installed VGA card. Most of the times X server works but I don't guarantee about other drivers to respond properly. Then, in Displays check that both displays are ON.

An alternative way to run a command if a screen is connected or disconnected An alternative solution would be to run a tiny background script. Running the script below in the background, I could not measure any increase in processor load whatsoever. It is an easy an convenient way to run a script, or any other command, whenever a second screen is connected ...

Unfortunately, there is no way to make the monitor settings understand you have your external screen on the left and you want the right screen to be the "main" screen, and the "home" location for your desktop icons. That does not mean however that you are convicted to dragging and rearranging your icons every time your second screen is connected or ...

The screen icons in the system settings can actually be dragged, so you can place the green Samsung on the left. Alternatively, you can use this command: xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1024x768 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --pos 1024x0 --rotate normal. I use this command (with different outputs of course) to position my screen, ...

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 ...

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 ...

you will need your laptop screen, i'll tell you why: first of all go to System-Setting>Displays. then select the screen you're connected to if you know your other screen resolution, set it and hit Apply. if you don't then start trying each one until the right one comes in. if this does not work then your HDMI cable is 100% damaged and/or might have one of ...

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. ...

It was not an issue with a graphics card. I checked and it supports 3 monitors at the same time. And Ubuntu DOES support this (14.04). In my case, BenQ did not automatically recognize which cable was on so I had to manually set that input is coming from HDMI. I now have image on all 3 monitors and all is working flawlessly.

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.

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.

display settings doesn't have much with BIOS settings, to change output from mirror to dual screen you have to go to "System Settings" then to "Display and Monitor" (I think that it has same name in Ubuntu and Kubuntu), click on monitor and set resolution and position (drag second monitor icon to the left or right of first one). There you have also an option ...

Alright, i figured it out myself. Using the Monitor Asset Manager I could determine a functioning ModeLine for that Monitor, which is: "2560x1440@60" 241,500 2560 2608 2640 2720 1440 1443 1448 1481 +hsync -vsync

I'm experiencing similar issues. I have noticed that this occurs if I use xrandr's --auto option or set mode to resolution other than that set in "display" settings panel before configuring xrandr.

Good news! The display adapter works seamlessly for Ubuntu 14.04. I had to go to the display settings and force Ubuntu to recognize the monitor to which the display adapter was connected.

There is actually an easier way of solving this. In your user profile set the displays exactly how you want them. Then copy ~/.config/monitors.xml to /var/lib/lightdm/.config This will force lightdm to use the exact same setup as your user profile.

Hate to report that we've solved the problem by removing the HDMI cable, fully shutting down the computers (we'd only been 'restarting' before) and replacing the HDMI cable once booted up and logged in. Now we can restart without removing the cable and it works fine.

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 ...
