View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual monitors in Ubuntu ?

July 26th, 2011, 10:20 AM
How can i activate the dual monitor support in ubuntu ?

Currently, the two displays are active, but they are mirrored, i.e. display the same picture.

I went to Start - System - Options - Monitors, and unchecked the "mirror monitors" box, then clicked on "Apply".

But it does not work, I get the following error message: "Error. Monitor x147 out of limit. Limit is 1600x1200."

But I set the resolution on both monitors to 1154x864, way lower than the limit, so what's going on ? How can I extend my desktop over the two monitors (no mirroring!) ? :(

change your resolution to 800x600 and try again!!!!
