Well, here's what I did to fix it (and I'm not 100% sure that it's fixed, but it seems like it! Hopefully there's no regressions!) Everything is run as sudo; I probably rebooted at some points during this, but I don't remember exactly when :/ I'm guessing you should reboot after step 5, and maybe after step 3. Disable Optimus in BIOS; only use the discrete ...

I recently installed 14.04, and found the exact same problem. I tried setting left and right screens in nvidia-settings manager but when I rebooted or restarted X they would switch back. Searched a lot online, but couldn't find a solution, then I just went to the Displays options in Ubuntu System Settings or unity-control-center, set everything there, and ...

I had the same problem and I solved it by changing the Nvidia driver. I put the proprietary driver, and since then everything works.

I have about the same thing going on. I posted here: NVidia-prime with 14.04 problems I've reached out to NVidia, but have to wait for their permission to ask a question in their forums. I've currently been waiting 3 days for that. By accident, I originally sent the request to their Windows team, who responded same day, but couldn't help me. I'm pretty ...

Thanks to @muru, I figured that setting the Display Configuration using the integrated Ubuntu solution works fine. Therefore, it seems that this is a missing feature of the nvidia-settings.

David Airlie implemented MST support in the kernel and the xserver-xorg-video-intel driver. To get it working on Ubuntu 14.04, you have to compile the linux kernel with his patch, as well as compile the intel X.org driver from git master. With that, I got it working. My Thinkpad T440p's UltraDock has a display connected on DVI, one on DisplayPort and the ...

So, xrandr's --scale option is fixing the flickering image. After that, to fix the "No Signal" problem I needed to open Displays settings app and drag external monitor around my built-in monitor to some arbitrary position and hit apply, then it all started to work.

I kept at this problem for a very long time (minimum 150 hours in effort over 14 months). Everything I tried didn't fly; and I tried so many things. I even hired a programmer to complete this process because it looks so promising: http://sagark.org/optimal-ubuntu-graphics-setup-for-thinkpads/ However, we were not able to do it successfully - maybe you ...

Basic way. If sshd is installed on your laptops you can connect with them with ssh -X from the central one. Once you have done you can run each graphic program and the graphical output will be redirected to your main one. More complex one. With NoMachine e.g., server and client, you can connect to a remote computer as if you where connected directly. It's a ...

Try the following (in the order presented): Change the power cable that connects the problematic screen to one that you are sure is working. If you continue to have problems, Change the monitor cable (DVI, HDMI, or VGA) with one that you are sure is working. If you continue to have problems, Try another monitor that you are sure is working. If you continue ...

I had the similar issue and used the geometry to determine which monitor should display the image when using additional monitors in extended mode. The issue is that the system sees the monitors as a single display with a single geomerty. Using the xy offset you can dictate where the image displays i.e. I have two monitors A-1920x1080 and B-1680x1050 ...

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but try enabling "Window snapping", "To screen borders" or "To other windows" in Settings Manager>Personal>Window Manager>Advanced>Window Snapping. Hope this helps.

From the Record My Desktop website, you can apparently select a window to record, an area of the screen to record, or the entire desktop. For what you are trying to do, I would set an area to record equal to the one monitor that you want to record.

The problem only happens when you have the launcher placed on "All Displays". I had already changed "Settings > Displays > Sticky edge > OFF", but there was no improvement. So I changed "Settings > Displays > Launcher Placement" to my first monitor only (removing "All Displays"), and the problem disappeared.

Either drag the window straight through, passing the place where the window goes full screen, or try every side of the main screen. If not just try to go through each side of the main window with your mouse to get it to show up on the top monitor.

SeaLion can be handy tool as it has built-in commands to monitor your server performance as well as you can add your own custom commands, scirpts and log output. It's very easy to setup and find out what went wrong at specific time.

You can enable the option "Emulate a virtual desktop" from the graphics section in "Configure Wine".

The -proposed repo is for package updates that are yet to be verified to be safe and not introduce regressions. This looks like one of those regressions. You shouldn't be using package from this section (unless you're knowingly pulling in a package for testing). Your best chance is to boot from a live CD, remove the trusty-proposed lines from ...

Your logs suggest that KMS is disabled through the nomodeset option: [ 4.409] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-30-generic root=UUID=87d0f715-ffb9-454e-a1a8-3233df4fa25e ro nomodeset quiet splash vt.handoff=7 Without this option, the Intel (i915) and radeon video driver won't load, and thus fallback to other, more limited ...

Had the same problem on 13.10 with Nvidia NVS 510 and 4 monitors. Even though nvidia-settings were configured correctly and saved to xorg.conf after reboot rotation options were not remembered. The solution was to open System Settings → Displays and configure the monitors again in the proper configuration. Then click Apply. I presume that this is ...

I have the same configuration with 3 monitors. One machine have 2 graphic cards and 3 monitors. The other 1 graphic and 3 monitors. On both machines I had to configure each monitor to have its own xserver. To config it I start NVidia X Server Settings (nvidia-settings) Go to X Server Display Configuration. In the Configuration: pull down box add a xserver ...

Maybe this will help... I'm using nvidia both at home and at work. In the one machine I have a GX550 Ti (home) and in the other 2 Quatro 2000 cards. On both machines I have 3 monitors connected. To make this work I had to config each monitor on there own xserver. In Nvidia X Server Settings->X Server Display Configuration select the monitor which is ...

What I did to fix this was open up system settings, even blindly if you can't see one of the screens. Change the resolution of the monitor not working, apply changes. Both my monitors worked at this point. You can now change the resolution back.

Make absolutely sure the cable is connected fully, I've had several that SEEM to be connected but are only partially connected. If that isn't the problem then it may be just that you do not have the correct drivers installed, run "sudo drivers autoinstall" to try to correct this

Looks like it is different in 14.04. Done though display settings. How do I disable mouse magnet on middle edge with multi monitors?

The +1+0 is offsetting by 1 pixel to the right. You'll want to do +1920+0 (move x by 1920, and y by 0) So, your script will look like this: #!/bin/bash killall -9 mplayer killall -9 xwinwrap xwinwrap -ni -o 0.65 -g 1920x1080 -fs -s -st -sp -b -nf -- mplayer -wid WID -quiet ~/wallpapers/blue-room.wmv -loop 0; & xwinwrap -ni -o 0.65 -g 1920x1080+1920+0 ...
