I was working on Ubuntu 12.04 doing my opengl programming and the problem was that I needed to use nvidia prime (laptop here), then backport it to dual monitor which was not supported.
I got tired of not using the second monitor so that I have I installed Ubuntu 14.04 in another partition (where nvidia prime should be fully supported). Everything works fine as I can compile my opengl stuff etc. Thus, I receive below error when I start from reboot:
could not set the configuration for CRTC 64
And then the monitors appears to be finicky. Although, I can reset the monitor every time I log-in, I would rater fix it for once. The only thing I found online was to delete the monitor
.xml which doesn’t resolve anything but removes the config.
Any advise to overcome this issue?
PS : I can set the monitor no problem from Screen setting , but if I open nvidia settings it shows only one monitor of size 3840x1080 rather then two 1920x1080.
