    Lightbulb Ubuntu 13.04 increase Virtual screen size for dual monitor

    So, i am working on Ubuntu13.04 on an FS Amilo pro V3505 laptop. it is equipped with Intel 945gpu and maximum screen resolution of 1280.x800. i wanna work Dual display with my main monitor, an LG22" that goes up to 1980x1050.

    The error :
    Requested size (2304, 800) exceeds 3D hardware limit (2048, 2048).
    You must either rearrange the displays so that they fit within a (2048, 2048) square

    Now as i recall, Virtual screen size can be set from xorg.conf, though im on a new installation, and using the default drivers, wich means that i have an empty xorg.conf.
    i tried also to use arandr application, but when it puts the monitors on the correct resolution, Desktop lags alot and/or freezes.

    As i recall, no 2d support is embeded for unity on the last version. whats the way to change virtual screen size for the 3dunity to work correctly?

    Thank you in advance.

    Dimitris.

    PS: good to be back after long time of absence

    Hi,

    no way. 2048x2048 is a known limitation for that graphics chip.
