I have two 27" monitors with a 2560 x 1920 resolution each. When I try to extend my desktop across them both I get the below error:
So, if I need to increase the maximum virtual screen size? To include a resolution of 5120 x 1920.
I've been trying to do this for about 12 hours now....
I have tried using xrandr arandr and a bunch of other tools recommend on this site and other forums.
I have added a xorg.conf file to /etc/X11 (which didn't exist already, and I generated) which now looks like this:
Note: This is just a snippet from the file (I can post it if needed).
Section "Screen" SubSection "Display" Virtual 5120 4096 EndSubSection EndSection
I also tried a bunch of other similar answers, and in the process messed up the xorg server and wasn't able to boot at all until re installing it.
I know xserver changed a bit from 12 to 14, and now uses a bunch of files in /usr/share/xorg.conf.d, which I have also played around with. My understanding is putting a xorg.conf file in the /etc/X11 folder would overrule that anyway (but really, I've been trying anything).
So far nothing has worked.
Some things have had an effect, like me not being able to boot up at all, or get past the logo, which have been solved by root terminalling in safe mode to undo changes or reinstall xserver.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
