View Full Version : [ubuntu] dual monitor issue

Hey people!

I need a little help, because there is a gap in the desktop :)

I am using a second monitor with my dell vostro a680, ubuntu 9.04, intel graphics card.

The screenshot is attached. On the right side there is a gap, where the last window that was moved leaves some marks.

It's not that annoying, but still, when my friends look at it, I can't even explain it, yet alone make it go away. And nowadays they are all windows user looking for something else :)

most likely you have the wrong resolution on the second screen

could you give infor on the screen sizes and their recommended resolutions

I managed somehow to make it work, it seems that the total resolution was too big for compiz to handle, so I removed it, reconfigured the graphics card, it seems that it wasn't configured quite well and now it works. Although I miss some effects.

Thanks for the reply!
