I have xubuntu on a HP laptop, and just got the Nvidia driver installed. I am trying to configure a second monitor.
However, everytime I try to edit the settings, through the GUI, I get
I have followed various suggestions made in these forums, like
Failed to parse existing X config file /etc/X11/xorg.conf !
$ chmod 777 xorg.conf
$ sudo nvidia-settings
and copying the contents to another file...
$ gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
but I get the same errors.
when I do the sudo nvidia-settings, I get:
Any thoughts? What am I missing?
allan@xu:~$ sudo nvidia-settings
[sudo] password for allan:
VALIDATION ERROR: Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Undefined Device "(null)" referenced by Screen "Default Screen".
My xorg.conf reads:
Identifier "Default Screen"
Identifier "Default Device"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
I took another suggestion, and deleted my existing xorg.conf file, and let Nvidia recreate it... and the new one definitely had more info, and settings (sounds good), but it isn't loading... I even chomod 777 it... still isn't loading.
