View Full Version : [ubuntu] Projector problem

November 25th, 2008, 05:19 PM
When the cable to the projector is connected when logging in to X I get the correct resolution (1280x800) both on the laptop and the projector. On the laptop everything looks like usual but on the projector I can't see:
* my application launching icons
* directories on the desktop
* open programs
Instead I can see:
* a new panel at the bottom
* other icons than configurated in the status bar
What's shown correct is:
* the background
* the theme
What could cause this problem?

I should add that if i connect the projector after X has started then I get everything right except for the resolution.

Please guide me through this problem. I will hold a course on thursday.

System: Ubuntu 8.10, Nvidia GPU.
