I am not able to make dual screen work. Mirrored display work, but when splitting the screen, the resolution gets all messed up.

Basically the external monitor "overflows" on the laptop screen

Here are the various informations about my system:

Graphics Card GeForce GTX1060

Driver version: version 381.22 from nvidia-381 (open source)

uname -a
Linux jb-laptop 4.4.25-040425-generic #201610161231 SMP Sun Oct 16 16:33:39 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I've searched for a long time here to find a solution to my problem but haven't had any luck so far.

I've tried upgrading the kernel, upgrading - downgrading to a different nvidia driver, tried to fiddle with the xrandr config settings.

Thanks in advance

NVIDIA binary driver version 384.59 was recently released and that fixed my issue (no further action was required).
