View Full Version : [ubuntu] Duel Screen Issue

July 19th, 2011, 04:42 PM
I tried to set up duel screen with the Nvidia server and when i restarted my main screen was black and my second screen ( 32" LCD TV ) was zoom'd away in to the top left corner of my dest top.

Are there any Terminal commands to reset the setting back ?

I feel your pain!

I am having a lot of problems with a multi-screen setup myself

Check if there is a backup of your xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/

ls -l /etc/X11

Replace the current xorg.conf with the backup

sudo cp /etc/X11/name.of.backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If not, try

sudo nividia-xconfig

If you make any changes to xorg.conf you have to restart your display manager.

You can stop and start the display manager (for testing) by doing the following:

alt+F1 for terminal
alt+F8 should bring you back to graphical display

in terminal

for gnome

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
