View Full Version : [ubuntu] Resolution problems with projector connected

December 1st, 2008, 10:47 PM

Having upgraded to Intrepid on my laptop, I now have trouble with my projector.
I have always connected via nvidia-settings, chosen TwinView (clones) and set the resolution to 1280x800 (my laptop screen resolution) and it's worked perfectly.

Under INtrepid, that resolution isn't listed! It means I can't get clones of my screen to show a presentation.

Is there a way to manually set the resolution to 1280x800 if it isn't listed?

BTW, if I use System>Preferences>Screen Resolution, I can't get it to detect the projector (Hitachi CP-RX60) at all.

Any help appreciated, please...I have a presentation coming up at the weekend, and I really don't want to have to use Windows...

PS If anyone knows how to get Fn-F8 to work on the A6VM to switch displays, that would be fantastic! Has always worked under Windows, never under Linux.
