Try to run from Konsole this command: kcmshell5 kded Stop and uncheck "KScreen 2" module, and then click on "Apply" and finally on "OK". Connect the second display (probably nothing will happen in the second screen because you have disabled the display module), and go on: System Settings > Display and Monitor, and enable the second display. I hope ...

I've also found another solution, that is bit different from what I wanted in the first place, but works fine too. Install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-plugins Run ccsm In Effects section enable Animations plugin In Focus Animation edit and select desired animation. Only wave effect worked... So if you don't like it, you will have face as sad as ...

Move all windows into the visible area As proposed/requested in a comment, the script below will move all "normal" windows to the visible area on the current workspace. The solution is a workaround; the screen info is updated correctly, given the difference in the output of xrandr, before and and after disconnecting. The reason why the windows do not move ...

Highlight the focussed screen (or dim- flash on focus change, see EDIT further below) In a side-by-side dual monitor setup (left-right), the script below will set the brightness of the monitor with the focussed window to "normal" (100%), while other one is dimmed to 60%. If the focus changes, the brightness will follow the focus: focus on (a window) on ...

This shouldn't a problem with Ubuntu. I'm pretty sure it's a setting in your BIOS setup. Hold down the DEL key when you turn on the computer to enter the BIOS setup. Somewhere inside there should be an option for the internal graphics card (whether to have it enabled or disabled). You'll need to set this to be enabled, then hit F10 to save the changes and ...

Instead of stretching the panel across both monitors I moved the clock to the left of the panel. I right click the panel, go to "Add/Remove panel items," select digital clock and move it all the way up until it's second only to the menu.

Try using another display manager. Maybe ARandR could do the trick. sudo apt-get install arandr. Afterwards open it typing nohup arandr in the command line.

I have solved the issue. I managed to create a .xprofile file and saved it to the home directory. I then added xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1280x1024_60.00" The only trouble I had was permissions with saving a .xprofile which somehow was not an issue when I did ...

if you're using Gnome on Ubuntu, you can use xrandr command to make screens different from one another. For example: xrandr --output HDMI1 --scale 2x2 --mode 1920x1200 --fb 3840x2160 --pos 0x0 xrandr --output DVI-0 --scale 1x1 --pos 320x2160 --scale 2x2 - make everything on 4K screen twice larger --mode XxY - explicitly set the resolution for screen (not ...

You need to install video driver. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install nvidia-346 and reboot. If that does not work well, install another driver sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa

I did not use x11vnc because 1/3 of my display was black, but i found the cause of this problem: x11vnc defaults to using xinerama to black-out the non-screen-area, but it detected my displays wrong. Disabling it with -noxinerama fixed it for me. x11vnc -clip 1368x768+439+0 -noxinerama worked. (You can get the numbers ⇧ by typing xrandr --current)

You can also take a look at the FakeXRandR project. FakeXRandR is a tool to cheat an X11 server to believe that there are more monitors than there actually are. It hooks into libXRandR and libXinerama and replaces certain, configurable monitor configurations with multiple virtual monitors. A tool that comes with this package can be used to configure how ...

my computer restarted and everything is working fine now. I have no idea what keeps happening but it is working now. thank you for helping me out. if I find out what is happening then I will let you know in case other people have the same problems.

It seems, there is something wrong with your system as xrandr fails to detect the adequate screen resolution. You didn't specify the target resolution you wanted, I assume this is 1920x1080. You can try to force it by following these instructions : 1/ use gtf to create a new mode line gtf 1920 1080 59.9 if you want another resolution gtf res_X res_Y ...

try forcing the output resolution with xrandr. If it doesnt work reboot passing "nomodeset" param to the kernel.

Finally I found the source for this problem; a random crash of "TVGuiSlave" proccess and the monitor came back to normal. This is then related to Teamviewer, which I have removed from the startup applications list to avoid this.

Solved this by installing Gnome. apt-get install gnome Kubuntu 15.04 comes with Plasma desktop which was failing just after logging in. As stated above, the error simply said "Plasma has stopped". Trying to use the debug option yielded no useful information.

I took this from an answer at superuser please give them an upvote if it helps you, you can use fakexinerama for achieving what you want: Fake Xinerama is a replacement libXinerama library that instead of querying the XServer reads ~/.fakexinerama and provides fake information about Xinerama screens based on this file. It can be used to fake a ...

You need to make the xrandr commands run on startup. Unfortunately, a lot of people have trouble making the commands permanent, so that they run on startup, but I'll show you how to do it the easy way: Create a bash script, xrandr.sh for example, and place your xrandr commands into it. It should look something like this #!/bin/bash xrandr --newmode ...

I had the exact same problem with one of my monitors as well. The best suggestion I can give you would be to put those commands into a script file. I named mine fixres.bsh and put it in my home ~ directory. Using your code below, I added the interpreter line as the first line, then added your code. #!/bin/bash xrandr --newmode "1680x1050_60.00" 146.25 ...

Have you described your devices / monitors configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf ? If not, I would advice you to do so, it was the only way to get my 3 monitors working on Ubuntu 15.04. You can look at my question to see some examples of configuration files, and ways to manage displays through xrandr or xorg.conf. Additionnaly, if you want more precise help ...

Finally got it... Triple check the output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log to remove as most as you can errors and warning. I mispelled one of my output DVI-O instead of DVI-0... So, if you encounter this problem, the solution seems to be : Describe as most as you can your configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf : device section with Options "AccelMethod" "glamor" / ...

Perhaps the solution would be to put the same changes into a script, set it as executable and let it run as a startup program.

I have the same issue of it being greyed out. I need to turn off the inbuilt display in order to use the external as the primary, and only monitor.

After researching it thoroughly, here are the steps to achieve this (terminal commands in grey): xrandr -q (to display info about displays, including the names. Mine are VGA-1 and DVI-I-1, used below) xrandr –output VGA-1 –left-of DVI-I-1 right click on the taskbar (panel) and choose panel settings enter the horizontal resolution of the left monitor in ...
