View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Multiple Monitors with ATI

February 10th, 2011, 05:40 AM
So I'm trying to escape the claws of Microsoft and am setting up one of my desktops with Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop. So far it is going great except for a big show stopper issue. I can't seem to get all my monitors working. They all seem to be recognized but only one of them has a desktop on it, the other seems to be some sort of a console log destination. I've searched the forum and the internet and I can't find any conclusive answers to what's going on here.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Here is the lspci output:
