    Re: 11.10 dual monitor nvidia card problem

    I have found resolution on an other webside:


    http://mygeekopinions.blogspot.com/2...driver-in.html
    --------------------------
    You can install this Nvidia Driver 290.... version in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot by entering the below command in your Terminal window. Once done, make sure to do a reboot of your Ubuntu PC/Laptop as well.
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    ----------------------------------------------

    This solved my problem: I can start ubuntu (3d) med unity and the twinview is activatet with

    sudo nvidia-settings ...... works as it should

    Re: 11.10 dual monitor nvidia card problem

    I have found another solution (my current configuration is DFP-0 + CRT-0):

    1. under System Settings->Additional Drivers, select NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]
    2. reboot to activate
    3. if you need / would like to pass the proper edid file for your monitor
      1. install read-edid (in the universe repo)
      2. sudo read-edid > monitor.edid
      3. sudo chown 0777 monitor.edid (quick and dirty)
      4. launch the NVIDIA X Server Settings app in the dash home
        1. acquire the file named monitor.edid you have just created
        2. create your dual display configuration and choose Save Current Configuration
        3. reboot
        4. rm monitor.edid (to delete the file: you do not need it any more)

      5. if you need to change the primary display for the X screen
        1. run the NVIDIA X Server Settings app again
        2. select X Server Display Configuration,
        3. choose your main display tab and flag the Make this the primary display for the X screen option
        4. choose Save Current Configuration
        5. reboot


    4. done!

    Definitely moving to GNU/Linux made me trust Computer Science again.

    I followed these steps and everything worked fine.

    Try to completely remove your nvidia drivers from your system:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

    Remove your xorg.conf
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Reinstall xorg completely
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64 libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64

    Re-configure Xorg
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    Reboot
    sudo reboo

    After the reboot my monitors were both displaying the same picture so i opened the "Displays" Setting from System Settings and i uncheked the "mirror displays" option.

    i hope this will help you guys.
    This worked great for me and also solved an issue I've been having since upgrading to 11.10 of waking up from sleep taking forever.

    sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

    Remove your xorg.conf
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Reinstall xorg completely
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64 libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64

    Re-configure Xorg
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    Reboot
    sudo reboot

    works if you do not want NVIDIA.

    After I removed NVIDIA I did this and it work with NVIDIA. I did this in unity 3D and everything is working fine. BUT I do not use 3D Cube, so I do not know what it will do in that case. I mostly use Gnome shell and it seems to work fine in that as well.

    Add NVIDIA latest driver stable PPA:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
    sudo apt-get update

    DO NOT upgrade or install updates from manager yet.

    Go to synaptic manager and search for "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau" and completely remove. It asks to remove "xserver-xorg-video-all" select apply. When done close synaptic.

    Then install NVIDIA driver 290.10:

    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings

    Reboot and it comes up as 1 monitor still but wait. Go to update manager and install NVIDIA updates if you have them.

    1. Run nvidia-settings

    2. select X Server Display Configuration,

    3. Enable the second monitor

    4. Choose your main display tab and flag the Make this the primary display

    5. Choose Save Current Configuration

    6. Save the configuration file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    (check merge with current if available - if you did top NVIDIA purge you will have to manually type in location)

    7. Close nvidia-settings

    8. reboot

    I clicked apply and everything worked fine before saving current configuration. Up to you whether to or not.

    I think this one worked for me also. Any way, I got my dual monitors working again with the help of this thread.
