HI All,

Today for presentation, I tried connecting my laptop to the Projector and then only I came to know that its not getting detected. (EPSON make projector device).
And same device got detected by my colleague laptop, which is running Ubuntu.

My OS is Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS

Please check attachment, it always show Unknown, donno why ?
FYI - refresh rate is 50Hz only, no other option to select.

I guess may be some driver is missing but donno which one - any help folks !!!

I have had this problem before and then I set preferens to perminantly clone any other monitor and the projector worked. I'm not sure about the graphics card on that machine though. I was runnng 10.4 though.
