View Full Version : [ubuntu] secondary monitor in dual monitor setup not soming out of standby after TTY switch

December 30th, 2008, 05:58 PM

i have a dual-monitor setup running on 8.10 using the open source nv driver.
the screens are configured using xrandr in XSession.d, and the display works ok after logging in.

when i switch to TTY1 (using CTRL + ALT + F1) the terminal is displayed on the main monitor while the secondary shuts down (goes into standby).

the problem is that when i return to X (using CTRL + ALT + F7) the secondary omnitor remains in standby.

i've tried re-configuring it using xranr from a terminal (this time a graphical terminal running on the gnome desktop) but to no avail - i cant make it turn on and display anything.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

well, seeing as no one here had any ideas, i filed an xorg bug report about this issue here : https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19349
