View Full Version : [ubuntu] Natty - ATI Proprietary drivers, wrong main screen and crash at shutdown

September 20th, 2011, 10:47 AM
Hi Guys,

So, I installed a 5850 and then the ATI proprietry drivers. After using catalyst to set up my two screens the main screen (launch/taskbar etc) is on my right screen where my left screen is primary.

I've tried switching the monitors at the card but ATI has the setting attached to the monitor and not the port.

I did find a command for setting the main screen but this is messy imho and awkward, have to type every time I start.

How can I setup xorg.conf to show the main screen on correct monitor?

Also, is it possible that my drivers aren't installed properly as everytime I shutdown, the computer crashes and I must power off. Anybody else ever had this?

Thanks in advance. :)

P.S. I'm running x64 Natty ;)
