View Full Version : [ubuntu] Monitor Preferences - No Values - 11.04 New Install

April 28th, 2011, 10:27 PM
I started with a newly built system using an ASUS P8 H67-M LE Series MB, that has Intel's Sandy Bridge

The CPU is an i5

I installed the 64 bit Ubuntu, 11.04

In the Control Center, I go to the Monitor Preferences, and all the settings are grayed out.

Monitor in On is set.

Resolution, Refresh Rate and Rotation are disabled.

If I click the Apply button, I get a pop up window with the message:

The selected configuration for displays could not be applied
required virtual size does not fit available size ....

The Detect Monitors button is enabled, but clicking has no effect. No monitors are identified.

How do I get the monitor settings working?


I am going through a KVM switch.

I bypassed the KVM switch and the monitor was identified. I saved that as the default.

Restoring the KVM switch causes the monitor identification to disappear, but the saved settings seem to be preserved.
