According to this bug report, intel-virtual-output encounter some difficulties with xorg-server version 1.17.1:

david@david-ubuntu:~$ intel-virtual-output 
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0"
      after 20 requests (20 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

As reported by a user, downgrading to version 1.16 would solve the problem. How can I safely downgrade the xorg package?

You can downgrade your xserver-xorg to 1.16 in Ubuntu 14.04 by running

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-utopic libqt5gui5 libgles1-mesa-lts-utopic libgles2-mesa-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic:i386 libglapi-mesa-lts-utopic:i386 libegl1-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic

You can check the version by dpkg -l | grep "ii xserver-xorg-core"

  • That installed xorg v1.16, but at the next rebbot lead the computer to a black screen before login, maybe due to my previously done configuration for bumblebee...

  • You will need to re-install all the nvidia stuff. I can't help with bumblebee.

  • Thanks, now I'm trying, perhaps it is convenient to reinstall completely ubuntu and firstly downgrade. Have I to block somehow the xorg version to prevent an upgrade? I think I can mark as solved the answer after that. Thanks

    You do not need to block anything. The xorg major versions do not change on regular upgrades. They are in different packages. 3.16 is lts-utopic, 3.17 is lts-vivid.
