I'm starting using Ubuntu 18.04 and I have a problem.

I'm creating project of game, which I need to be shown on resolution 3840x1080.

I've got two monitors 1920x1080, and Intel Graphic Card (Nvidia surround is not useful here ).

On Windows it is easy to set by using the Intel® Graphics Control Panel

I cannot see something like this in Ubuntu.

Could you please help me or tell me, on which Linux distributions this is easy to perform?

  • I'm not sure if I'm understanding correctly: have you tried going to Displays in the settings (search "Display" in the applications menu to find it) and selecting "Join Displays"? – anonymous2 Apr 16 at 17:38
  • Yes i tried using setting but still I have two 1920x1080. I need one 3840 x 1080. So for example if I will open youtube, and click on fullscreen mode then I'will get youtube on two monitors. And then I open a game I will get the same effect : ) Thank you for your answer : ) – Mike Del Apr 16 at 18:24
  • I see... I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but a possible work around would be to unmaximize your given window then resize it to cover both screens... at least that works on Unity with Ubuntu 16.04. I don't currently have an 18.04 installation with 2 screens. – anonymous2 Apr 16 at 19:10
  • To get it to really work, the only way I personally know of would be to switch to the Unity desktop environment then use the information in this answer – anonymous2 Apr 16 at 19:12
  • I'm using godot, but maybe it would works, I will try now, Thank you : ) – Mike Del Apr 16 at 19:17

So the solution in this case was simply to switch to the Unity Desktop Environment, after which the OP was able to use the information in this answer:

  • Install compizconfig-settings-manager
  • Go to the Display Settings tab and disable output detection
  • Edit the 640x480+0+0 entry to read 3840x1080+0+0
  • Then close, and it should work!
