View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Monitors reversed

November 3rd, 2008, 06:43 PM
Sorry in advance if I am not providing sufficient information in regards to my problem, what happened is I had installed Ubuntu (previous version, not the newest one) and found I was able to get my dual monitors up and running AOK, but they were reversed with the mouse, so to get to the second monotir instead of going to the right and onto the 2nd screen as usual I had to go to the far left and then it would appear...is there a fix for this or an option to select, I am going to be installing the latest ver of Ubuntu and wanted to tackle this right away.

You need to edit the xorg.conf file,open a terminal and enter....

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Inthe file that opens find the section that looks like this...

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
Screen 1 "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"

In the line where it says

"Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"

Change "RighOf" to "LeftOf" (If it says "LeftOf" to begin with change it to "RightOf")

Thank you, sounds like that is the fix
