    Hi guys! I have read both forums referred to above (http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/X.Org/Dual_Monitors) and (http://linux.fi/wiki/X.orgin_asetukset, duly translated into english of course)

    I figured out that you can "play" with the xorg.conf with many different configurations and you may get:

    TV output at 1280x1024

    dual screens

    mirrowed screens

    extend the laptop screen to the TV

    swich the principal screen.


    I will try to generate scripts to make this easier for everyone to make them work.

    Best (I´m becoming to love lynux)

    Just for reference (it took me ages to find this).

    Instead of 0.9.1 from hellnest in github, please use this:
    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-sis/

    0.10.7

    and this should work on 12.10

    -rsd

    Thanks for this rsdias but I've been using 0.9.1 for a long time without issues, is there any noticeable difference in 0.10.7? Is it working better in any way?

    hi, I have the same case.
    finally yesterday, I've got my 1366 x 768 display

    so this is the trick ( it's not 3D acceleration.... just monitor trick )

    WARNING !!!! UBUNTU MUST FRESH INSTALLED. BACKUP YOUR DATA FIRST

    Work on Ubuntu 12.04. I have not tried it on other versions

    1. Download this mageia driver for 32 bit : http://mirror.yandex.ru/mageia/distr....mga2.i586.rpm
    for 64 bit : http://mirror.yandex.ru/mageia/distrib/2/x86_64/media/core/release/x11-driver-video-sisimedia-0.9.1-1.20091203.11.mga2.x86_64.rpm

    2. Download SIS driver & xorg here http://www.4.shared.com/zip/s1NL2GAv..._1366x768.html

    3. extract the 12.04 32bit 1366x768.zip file.

    4. copy sismedia
    $ sudo cp sisimedia_drv.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
    5. copy xorg.cong
    $ sudo cp xorg.conf /etc/X11
    6. install alien
    $ sudo apt-get install alien
    7. change DIR
    $ cd Downloads
    8. now you should convert RMP file to DEB file >>>> still on terminal, type ;
    $ sudo alien -d x11-driver-video-sisimedia-0.9.1-1.20091203.11.mga2.i586.rpm
    9. after done convert it, you will see x11-driver-video-sisimedia_0.9.1-2.20091203_i386.deb file.

    10. and install it.

    11. done, and reboot

    I apologize for jumping straight to this,I know you are supposed to search,but this thread is 85 pages long : can someone point out where in it I can find (hopefully) simple,straight directions on how to install a driver that will just give me a 1366*768 screen resolution instead of 1024*768,no other stuff involved as Compiz effects and such?

    I've had this damn laptop (Asus K50C) for years now,and gave up on installing Linux for this very issue,since back then I did not have the skills to even try to install a driver -now,after running several distros on another pc,I may (or still may not ,come to that ) have the ability to give this another shot:this laptop won't have to do much but serve as a backup option,only that 1024*768 resolution is unbearable,looks like the computer has been started in safe mode.

    It is great to hear few manage to get expected resolution and few dual monitor. I did manage to set expeted resolution by folllowing steps as metioned by Ajoliveira on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 bit -

    http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/uk/software/xorg.php

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Download the drivers from http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/gen...t_12.04.tar.gz
    2. Download the script from http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/gen/bin/sis.gz
    3. Untar/Unzip both files
    4. Run the script to copy driver and xorg
    abc@abc:~/Downloads$ sudo chmod +x sis
    abc@abc:~/Downloads$ sudo ./sis 32 12.04
    5. Restart PC
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    But I have a problem running SKYPE. When I start video call X server restarts with loging prompt. This was also seen for VLC and MINITUBE while running a video. VLC problem is fixed with setting Tools -> Preferences -> Video -> Output -> "X11 Video output (XCB)"

    The problem with SKYPE and MINITUBE is still there. So to me it look like the setting for SKYPE and MINITUBE has to be changed like VLC. But I could not figure it out by searching all day and trying many things.

    Can anyone please pinpoint what does happen when we change VLC Video output to "X11 Video output (XCB)" from "Default" and how can we do the same for SKYPE and possibly MINITUBE? SKYPE video is priority for me.

    worked for me using 12.04.3 LTS 32 bit

    However, xrandr doesn't show the two connectors of the card, LVDS1 and VGA1. So, VGA1 can't be controlled as I use to with other computers.

    So, I think nothing new for SIS 671/771 is coming with this Trusty 14.04 update, am I right? Has anyone given it a try?
